Paternity, Custody and Parentage Actions


A vital component of the family law practice at Sideman & Bancroft is giving our clients access to the resources they need to make good decisions in what can be emotionally trying situations. We coordinate with family therapists, co-parenting counselors and special masters, when warranted, to facilitate decision making on visitation and other child-rearing issues.

When these avenues don’t yield satisfactory outcomes, we pursue litigation and advise our clients throughout that process. We also address same-sex parentage and custody matters such as visitation rights for non-registered domestic partners and official recognition of same-sex parental rights.
