Domestic Partnerships Lawyers in the San Fernando Valley

Navigating You Through This Complex Family Law Matter

While unmarried couples are typically not afforded the same benefits and community property rights as married couples, California family law does provide certain protections for unmarried couples.

Using paternity and child support laws, the San Fernando Valley family law attorneys of Joel S. Seidel & Associates often help unmarried parents protect their children's best interests by establishing paternity. We have the resources to explore every legal option possible to ensure that your child’s interests are advocated in or out of court.

For a lawyer who has comprehensive knowledge in this area of family law, call (818) 435-3773. Joel S. Seidel, our lead attorney, is a Certified Family Law Specialist with over 50 years of legal combined experience.

Unmarried Parents & Child Support

Parents, regardless of their marital status, have an obligation to support their children. Likewise, a parent has a right to access to his or her child along the same lines as persons who are married. If you are not married to the other parent of your child, and if you are not receiving the support your child needs, we can explain your options for obtaining that support. Every family situation is different, but the determination of child support is nonetheless a regulated area of law. The courts must use a mathematical formula to calculate child support.
