Paternity actions are either instituted by one of the parents of a child or through the District Attorney's office under the Uniform Parentage Act. The purpose of these proceedings is to first determine the parentage of the child and then to deal with the important aspects of child custody and child support. Under the Family Code of California, there is a compelling state interest in establishing paternity for all children. Establishing paternity is the first step toward a child support award, which in turn, provides children with equal rights and access to the benefits of social security, health insurance, survivor benefits, military benefits and inheritance rights.

Ruben Huggins is experienced in all aspects of paternity proceedings and provides advocacy when the issue of paternity is being challenged.
