Darryn L. Duchon - Indianapolis, Indiana Paternity Law ● Parents' Rights
Contact Indianapolis attorney Darryn Duchon for advice and representation concerning your rights and obligations concerning a child of unmarried parents. If you're a mother seeking an order establishing paternity of your child, he can show you how you can obtain and enforce an order of child support under the Indiana Child Support Guidelines.
If you're a father recently served with an order for child support, Indianapolis paternity lawyer Darryn Duchon can help you disprove paternity if you believe the paternity order is invalid. If the paternity DNA test results indicate that you're the father, he can assist you with the following issues:
An order for paternity will impose child support obligations on an unmarried father, but will not assure the father of any paternity rights to visitation or parenting time in Indiana. If you want to have an active role in your child's development, you need to get a court order that will establish your right to fixed visitation and shared legal custody. With that order in place, you'll have a voice in all of the important decisions concerning your child's education, medical treatment, religious training, and welfare.
In situations where a mother is planning to give her unborn child up for adoption, the father must claim paternity rights by filing a paternity petition within 30 days of receiving notice of the mother's intent. Failure to file for paternity within those 30 days results in the loss of a father's right to claim paternity. Darryn Duchon has also defended parents in contested adoptions to prevent a child from being adopted by a non-parent.
