North Shore, Massachusetts, Paternity Lawyer


Both genders enjoy some legal rights in paternity disputes. Both mothers and fathers, though, should be careful: exercising these rights can lead to responsibilities as well. For instance:

  • Are you an unmarried mother who is interested in obtaining child support payments from your child's dad? Child support payments may be accompanied by the father's child custody or visitation rights.
  • Are you a father who wishes to establish paternity or a relationship with your child? A relationship, custody rights or visitation rights may come with expensive child support payments.

I am Boston paternity attorney Annette L. Baker, and I assist mothers and fathers in paternity disputes. I can help you identify and achieve your paternity dispute goals while taking into account the unplanned-for results that a paternity dispute can lead to.

Do you have paternity law questions in Massachusetts? Contact an experienced Beverly family law lawyer at the Law Office Of Annette Baker by calling 978-712-4268.

Both parents face important decisions in paternity dispute. As the mom, if you don't need the money that child support can bring, you might want to keep the dad out of the picture. As the dad, you need to balance parental considerations with financial consideration as well.

I can handle your legal process and provide counsel even as early as the pregnancy. In fact, it is best to consult with me prior to the birth so that important legal actions can be taken immediately. I can also conduct an investigation regarding criminal record, substance abuse and other issues that may affect the case.

Make sure that you and I both have all the needed information to protect your paternity rights as soon as possible. To arrange a consultation, contact my Beverly office.
