Can failing to pay child support keep me from getting a passport?

As a father, you may have all sorts of concerns after a divorce. For example, you may be worried about your ability to pay alimony or spend time with your child. However, child support can be particularly troubling, especially if you are going through financial hardships. If you live in Indianopolis, or another part of Indiana, failing to make your child support payments on time could affect you in many different ways. Moreover, some men are told to pay child support for a child which is not theirs. If you are worried about being required to pay child support for a child that is not biologically yours, you should explore all options, such as DNA testing.

How to establish paternity

In order to have rights to a child that you have fathered in Indiana, you need to establish paternity. Proving that you are the father through a legal channel is important to be recognized as having rights under the law. At Schembs Law, we work with many men to establish paternity and gain parental rights.

Don't fear court bias - fathers have equal parental rights

Many fathers feel like their fate is already decided before they step foot into court. Years ago when men wanted primary or even equal custody of their children they would get shot down once they got before a judge. While this used to be true, American culture is changing. Mothers are making up a growing share of the workforce while dads are taking a growing share of parenting time.
