Looking For Help In A Paternity Dispute?
Paternity cases involve determining parenting time, decision-making and child support for parents who were never married.

In these cases, proving paternity is the best remedy.

Paternity issues can be complex and emotionally draining. Fay, Farrow & Associates P.C., provides a helpful environment where you can access experienced lawyers. Our firm offers candid and reliable legal counsel for clients in Naperville and in communities throughout the surrounding areas.
How Established Paternity Benefits Your Child
Illinois law is relatively straightforward about paternity. Unless proven otherwise, the law assumes that a married woman’s husband is the father of her child if they are married at either time of conception or during birth. By establishing paternity in cases where this presumption is inaccurate, your child benefits from clarified legal rights to:
- Child support and visitation with the father
- Access to social security benefits if the father is disabled or passes away
- Simplified inheritance proceedings
- Possible eligibility for veteran’s benefits, health insurance or life insurance
