Paternity & Fathers’ Rights

Experienced Paternity Attorneys Serving Burnsville

Protecting Fathers’ Rights in the Twin Cities Since 1992

When a child is born, the father has no legal rights to their child until paternity is established. A simple paternity test involving a cheek swab can quickly end bitter disputes through establishing or refuting fatherhood of a child.

At the Burns Law Office, we have represented clients in complicated paternity disputes since 1992. We establish paternity to protect fathers’ visitation and child custody rights.  Tests can show our client is in fact the father of the child in question.

Mothers use paternity tests to establish the father of their children. This is an important step to determine who is obligated to pay child support. Put our firm’s experience to work for you.

Protecting Fathers’ Rights

A man who contests claims of paternity can use paternity tests to prove he is not the father of a child. This is a critical step in ensuring our clients are not obligated to paying child support in the future.

We offer a proactive approach focused on listening to our clients’ unique needs. The attorney at our law firm tailor their approach based on the specific situation involved in each case.

Our law firm’s founding attorney John Burns has been named a Super Lawyer by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine. This recognition is held by only the top five percent of his profession.  Mr. Burns is well-respected for handling complicated cases, including paternity disputes.

Credit cards or payment plans accepted.
