If you are facing a parentage case and need legal guidance, count on the Law Office of Tiffany L. Andrews, P.C. Our parentage lawyers in Folsom have extensive experience in this area of the law. We are eager to serve as your advocate.

Contact us online or call (916) 794-4576 to learn more about parentage.

Paternity vs. Parentage

You will often hear the term “paternity case” and frequently this means the same thing as a parentage case. However, establishing paternity is and should be distinguished as something entirely different than a “parentage case” or a “paternity case.”

Establishing paternity is something that can be done in a parentage case when the paternity of a child is unknown or in question. Before the Court may make orders relating to custody, visitation, or child support, it is required to make a legal finding of paternity.

The Legal Number of Parents

There are many different types of parents and biology does not always dictate who may be legally considered the parent or parents of a child.

California law dictates how many people can be declared parents to any one child. Before 2013, only two persons could be declared parents of a child or children. Now, it is actually possible for more than two people to be declared parents of a child or children.

  • “Tiffany cares about her clients and fights for their rights.”
    Tiffany worked on my foster/adoption case - that was long, difficult, and drawn out. She researches every angle, is intuitive, intelligent and fights for her clients' to get the best possible outcome. Also, she genuinely cares about her clients best interests and provides guidance and counsel throughout the process.

    Tiffany and her team are wonderful! They have great communication skills, within the office and with myself, the client. While communicating via email, my questions and concerns are addressed quickly and thoroughly. Each employee that I have spoken to, ranging from receptionist to office manager, to the attorney, has been incredibly kind. Tiffany is extremely knowledgeable and resourceful.

  • “Child Custody Case”

    Tiffany was asked to represent me in court as my primary attorney was called to attend another court case.

    Tiffany acted in a very professional manner, was very supportive, Tiffany made sure that she has a good understanding of my case prior to attending court. Whilst we waited for the court to open Tiffany was very attentive to me, asking me if I had any questions, trying to relax me even though this is a highly confrontational custody case. During the wait time, Tiffany noticed that the other attorney was acting inappropriately and immediately challenged his position, to which he apologized.

    Once in court Tiffany took the lead putting forward our case, she did this in a well-structured way. Each point had solid reasoning and when the apposing council tried to interrupt Tiffany politely asked him to wait until she had completed his argument. Tiffany mentioned to the judge the incident in the waiting area and the Judge was very clear that this behavior was unacceptable. The judge listed intently to Tiffany points and contentions, the facts were very clear and he was able to make the required decisions based on her submission without further clarification on my custody request. 

    Despite the fact Tiffany was covering for another attorney, I could not have asked for better support. She is an outstanding attorney, very knowledgeable on custody cases and the rules relating to custody. I would have not had a second thought engaging Tiffany as my primary attorney or making a recommendation to anybody who needs an excellent divorce/custody lawyer. 
    Thank you for your support - you were outstanding

  • “I would highly recommend her to anyone!”
    It is true that divorce is the most trying time anyone will ever experience. Having said that, Tiffany has been an ally in the onslaught of negativity. My case has been VERY complicated and has involved domestic violence. She has worked to affect a positive outcome for me and my son. While this case is not over, and the outcome is still uncertain, I am certain that I am in the best hands possible with her as my attorney. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
