Spring Paternity Lawyer
Paternity Actions in Texas
If you suspect that you are the father of a child, you have the right to
establish paternity. Sometimes, the child's mother may agree that
you are the father, and you can sign an affidavit evidencing that you
are the child's rightful parent.
If the mother refuses to admit that you are the father, you can evidence
this through DNA testing. If you are capable of establishing paternity
of a child, this can help you secure certain visitation and child support
rights. This often works in the best interest of the mother as well, as
you may need to pay child support to care for the child.
Why is establishing paternity important?
Proving that you are the father can help you:
- Petition for visitation rights
- Request custody arrangement modifications
- Contest the adoption of the child by another family
- Allow you to include the child in your will or give the child automatic
- Provide child support
