Parentage and paternity issues involving children born to unmarried parents are controlled by the Illinois Parentage Act of 1984. Three primary types of cases can be filed pursuant to the Illinois Parentage Act:
Non-contested paternity suits establishing paternity by agreement of the parents; Contested paternity suits establishing the existence of a father-child relationship; and non-contested paternity suits establishing the non-existence of a father-child relationship.
Our DuPage paternity lawyers have extensive experience in all three types of paternity cases and would be happy to assist you regardless of your situation.
