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.

  • “Dedicated and Professional”
    Ms.Andrews represented My husband and I for a very emotional child custody case in early 2010. She was professional, prepared and most importantly fought for our side to be heard by all parties involved. 
    We are thankful for all the hard work that she put into our case that lead to a positive ending for our case. We would recommend Ms. Andrews for any legal issues that you may have in family court.

  • “Attorney With Compassion”
    Working with Tiffani Andrews Law office was a godsend. After struggling for a bit to get legal assistance, I found Brenda. She showed a great deal of empathy to me as I was unfamiliar with the California legal process, and had the need to get legal assistance as soon as possible for a divorce and child custody case. Her guidance and handoff to Stephanie could not have been more helpful and beneficial. I would recommend this office for all the obvious reasons, but also for their efficiency and clear value for the client. Tiffani Andrews Law has my complete trust.

  • “I feel blessed to have Ms. Andrews on my side, and I highly recommend her services!”

    After the initial shock of being served divorce papers, I began interviewing attorneys to help me with the legal proceedings. The first couple of attorneys focused on how to address the support and division of property issues included in the papers I was served, without really asking me about my interests in this matter.

    After meeting with Ms. Andrews, and ever since that initial interview and consultation, I always felt she had my best interests in mind. She immediately explained what I needed to file and when what to expect going forward and then asked me about my interests. Wow! She was exactly the kind of attorney I was looking for to represent me.

    She was always responsive to my questions and requests, no matter how basic, and got back to me in a timely manner… at times outside normal work hours. But, the biggest and most pleasant surprise to me was when she began educating and guiding me through every step in order to achieve my interests and goals -– mainly, my number one priority and “my everything” in this whole process: to retain shared custody and visitation rights with my children. Her guidance and recommendations put me at ease and really helped put my children first.

    Her knowledge, honesty, and dedication through numerous and unexpected court hearings involving custody and visitation issues not only resulted in the resolution of such issues in a competent and efficient manner but a resolution that Ms. Andrews knew I wanted.

    Not only is Ms. Andrews reliable, helpful and an overall amazing attorney, her office staff is also very courteous, professional and efficient in keeping me apprised of what was needed and the status of the case. Thank you so much, Ms. Andrews… and staff!!

  • “Very Knowledgeable Attorney”
    I'm the father in the middle of a dependency juvenile hearing. Tiffany Andrews is an upfront, honest and sincere attorney with knowledge in this area that surpasses any other attorney I've consulted with. She was able to educate me and inform me of the different directions my case could go. She gives great advice, something that not all attorneys give, and gives me the facts of what she sees, not sugar coating it. If you're looking for a caring and dedicated family law attorney, I highly recommend Tiffany Andrews.

  • “Got my life back, so awesome!”
    This lady knows her stuff! She is quick and on top of the case at hand. When we were waiting for my very late (now) ex to show up for court, she was furiously working and we got the case settled, done, over! She also tells it like it is. I learned so much from her and her very courteous staff. If I was freaking out a bit, they never lost their cool. Thank you so much for everything!
