Helping With Paternity Actions

Time after time, studies tell us that it is in the best interest of a child to have two parents playing an active and engaged role in his or her life. Ryan Genest attorney at law of Culp, Doran & Genest, P.L.C., in Des Moines works to allow both parents the right and privilege to be a part of their child's life.

Representing Fathers And Mothers

Not only do we represent fathers seeking to know and support their child, we assist mothers in obtaining the support needed to raise the child in the best way possible. We want to help families throughout Iowa create an environment where the child can know and be supported by both parents with minimal conflict.

Our family law attorneys believe that in some cases a father chooses not to be involved. Our female clients deserve aggressive representation to ensure that they receive all proper benefits that they are entitled to under the law from the father of their child. We will help you obtain the financial support needed to raise the child in an appropriate environment.

Fathers' Rights

Many men are unaware of the extent of their rights as biological father. Just because your relationship with your child's mother has ended, your relationship with the child does not also have to end. We will advocate on your behalf to ensure that you are still allowed parental rights and the opportunity to be involved in the life of your child.

We complete all necessary tests to prove the paternity of the father. We will then guide you through the legal process of restoring your rights as the father. This includes child custody orders, child visitation agreements and any necessary modifications.

To best understand an individual's situation and needs, we provide each client a free initial consultation. To arrange a meeting with a skilled family law lawyer, please call us today at 515-288-3333.
