3 Facts About Minnesota Paternity 


If parents are unmarried when a child is born in the State of Minnesota, the mother automatically has sole legal and sole physical custody of the child until a court order establishes custody and parenting time. A family law attorney at Trenti Law can help you petition for custody and parenting time.
