About This Episode

Scott Trout, CEO & Managing Partner of Cordell & Cordell, is joined by Jerrod Rayborn, Cordell & Cordell Senior Litigation Attorney, this episode to clarify what paternity actions mean for both parents.

When a child is born to unwed parents, paternity issues often arise, where there’s no automatic assumption of the father’s identity. In this episode, Mr. Trout and Mr. Rayborn explain how paternity actions help establish who the father is and outline the rights and responsibilities this legal recognition entails.

Mr. Trout and Mr. Rayborn provide straightforward insights, emphasizing the importance of addressing paternity early to prevent complications later on. They stress that establishing paternity by law offers a solid foundation for resolving any future issues related to time-sharing and child support.
