Trust our team of expert attorneys in Manhattan and Brooklyn to help win your case.

Just because you are not married to your partner does not mean you cannot use the help of a divorce lawyer. If you have children together, you will need the assistance of Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. when it comes to both child custody and child support.

You can also hire us to help with a paternity case, whether you are a female who needs to prove who the father is, or a male who is protesting paternity. Either way, the outcome of the case can affect your life substantially, so we are prepared to help you with this type of case.


Paternity testing is often simple, with a DNA test confirming the truth. But if you are not sure of the benefits of establishing paternity, you may not be convinced that you need one. Many people, including both mothers and fathers can benefit from this type of testing.

For example, if you are a male who is not sure whether the child you have raised is biologically yours, you should get a paternity test. This is important before you start paying child support, since you can save yourself a lot of money with a simple test.

On the other hand, if your ex is claiming you are not the father, keeping you from getting visitation rights or custody, you need to take a test. Confirming that you are indeed related to the child can help increase your chances of being able to see him or her regularly. In addition, the court will note that your former spouse lied about paternity, which will work in your favor.

If you are a mother, you will often need to prove paternity before you can get child support, provided the father is denying that he is related to the child. A paternity test can put the issue to rest so that it is obvious that you are owed child support.

In fact, getting a paternity test can help us win your case. Whether you are a mother seeking child support or a father seeking visitation rights, knowing paternity test results can allow us to get you the results you want.


If you are not sure where to get started, or whether a paternity test will even help your case, we encourage you to contact us. We at Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. can let you know if you should order a test of this kind. If so, we will guide you through the legal process until you obtain the outcome you deserve.

We want to make sure fathers are able to see their children while also taking financial responsibility. If you are having trouble knowing where to begin when it comes to seeing your children, getting child support, or proving a child is not yours, you should contact Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C.
