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 inheritance rights
  • Provide child support
