Paul George faces trial over father’s rights and paternity

Paternity is a difficult issue for some people. Taking the test may seem invasive, especially to those who weren’t expecting to be accused of being the father of a child after a one-night stand or short relationship. Taking the DNA test is simple, and if you believe your child’s father is who you think it is, then he should have no problem taking the test and accepting responsibility.

In Massachusetts, you may have heard about Paul George, an Indiana Pacers All-Star, who has been struggling through a paternity suit since May. He had previously been accused of not wanting to take part in his now 5-month-old daughter’s life, but as a settlement is close to being reached in the case, he has been able to meet the child for the first time. He had previously been named as the father of the child through a private paternity test.

When the settlement is over, it’s believed that George will receive joint custody of his 5-month-old daughter. He seems to be happy with that, as he posted an image of her on his social media page with a positive post along with it. It’s been reported that the mother, along with George, have been appearing in good spirits and positive about working together in their daughter’s life.

If you’ve been found to be the father of a child or you know is the father of your child is, there are legal options you can pursue. In many cases, this can result in a happy outcome, like in this case. Either way, you have the right to seek the outcome you want for your child.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
