00:04
in my practice the type of paternity
00:06
issues that i see
00:08
range from a new mother who’s just had a
00:10
child
00:11
and they’re concerned about whether or
00:13
not
00:14
they’re going to get some financial
00:16
support or interest from the father
00:19
and then on the other side of it i get
00:20
fathers who
00:22
are concerned that i have somebody who i
00:25
don’t know very well
00:26
she’s pregnant with my child i’m afraid
00:29
i’m going to be cut
00:30
out or there’s already a feeling that
00:32
they’re getting cut out
00:33
so those issues come up a lot and what
00:36
both of those parents need to know
00:38
is that in illinois the judges and
00:41
everybody that’s involved in this system
00:43
want to make sure that that child has
00:45
both a mother
00:46
and a father and they understand
00:50
in paternity actions that maybe the
00:51
parties don’t know each other well
00:53
enough
00:54
to have some trust in each other either
00:58
in their longevity and staying in a
01:00
child’s life
01:01
or the other person’s ability to care
01:04
for a child but the courts are going to
01:06
work with those fears
01:08
and they’re going to make sure that
01:09
there’s
01:11
orders in place and rules in place so
01:14
that those parties can learn to be
01:15
parents together
01:17
and i think it’s an important part of
01:19
going to court in paternity actions
