Understanding Your Rights: Paternity And Parenting Time
For unmarried couples, establishing paternity is an integral part of ensuring that parents are able to enforce their rights and hold co-parents accountable for the responsibilities associated with having children.

Based in Oakland County, our lawyers bring more than 60 years of combined legal experience to each case we handle, giving us the skill necessary to advocate effectively for clients when their parental rights are on the line.
We serve Oakland, Wayne, Macomb, Livingston and Washtenaw counties.
Protecting The Rights Of Mothers And Fathers
Paternity issues affect the rights of both parents, making it critical that each parent have a seasoned family law attorney helping to explain their options and protect their rights.
Often, unmarried parents who have a solid relationship when a child is born, allow establishing paternity to take a back seat to the more pressing concerns of caring for a newborn. Unfortunately, when relationships fall apart this leaves many fathers unable to immediately enforce their rights to spend time with their children and mothers unable to secure the support they need to make ends meet.
At Jackman & Kasody PLLC, our attorneys serve either parent facing a paternity issue and provide comprehensive representation that reaches to all related areas, including child custody, parenting time and child support matters. We encourage clients to look for amicable solutions that preserve their co-parenting relationships, but are skilled, capable courtroom attorneys ready to defend our clients when an agreement is not possible.
