Palatine Paternity Lawyer
Family Attorney Nicholas W. Richardson Handles Your Parentage Legal Issues
Are you a birth mother seeking to establish paternity for your child in order to receive child support and other financial assistance?
Are you a biological father seeking to establish parental rights through the paternity legal process, so you can enjoy a prominent role in your child's life with custody or visitation?
Are you obligated to pay support but not given reasonable parenting time with your child?
In the state of Illinois, a presumed father does not have a legal right to custody or visitation with his child until a Court Order is entered declaring paternity — regardless of whether he is listed on the birth certificate. Yet he may still have an obligation of support.
When you need the help of an experienced family law and paternity attorney who offers sound advice and assists you in reaching a comprehensive parenting order to determine your rights and responsibilities, contact the Law Office of Nicholas W. Richardson, P.C., serving clients in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs.

He then sets forth your options to best reach your objectives and assists you in determining a realistic plan moving forward. Through consultation, he works with you to set forth solid strategies, binding documentation and, if necessary, aggressive litigation.
