Reviewing some of the benefits of establishing paternity

63353619_S.jpgWhen it comes to legal issues involving families, there are numerous issues that may affect parents and their children, such as child support and custody matters. In Jackson County, Missouri, couples who are not married may have additional hurdles to work through when they decide to split up. For example, they may wish to establish paternity for various reasons. For fathers and mothers, it is essential to understand why paternity establishment is important and recognize some of the different ways that legal fatherhood can benefit an entire family.

For example, you may be able to work together and move forward with the collaborative process, or you may have to head to court and endure bitter disputes over family issues such as child support and custody. Sometimes, legal separation is an option for couples in Jackson County, and all across Missouri. However, it is vital to understand what legal separation entails and how it differs from a regular divorce.
