What Does a Lawyer Need in a Paternity Case?

For a paternity case, we would need to know each party’s income for purposes of calculating child support. We’d need to know each party’s assets and liabilities to see if attorney’s fees are an issue. And then we’d also need to know about the history of the child who typically took care of the child, who made meals for the child, who did schoolwork for the child, bedtime and bath time routines and things relating to taking care of the minor child.

So in a paternity case, like you brought up, it would be a different, a little bit of a more limited scope, but some of the information is still relevant because in a paternity case, we do have to talk about child support, which is income based and potentially attorney’s fees suit monies and costs, which is also based on each party’s income and assets.
