Q: How can I get my rights as a father the DNA test is already done. I just don't know how to get my parental rights.
A: Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local family law attorney to review all the facts, advise you, and file with the court. You also will probably be required to start paying child support if you file.
You will have to file a complaint in the appropriate court for the establishment of parental rights and responsibilities. Retain the assistance of counsel to advise you and to ensure that everything is done properly.
This response is based on the limited facts you have provided and is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. I cannot provide adequate advice to you without meeting with you in person. If you would like to schedule a consultation, please feel free to contact me.
