Paternity Lawyer Dallas Fort Worth
A petition to establish the paternity may be filed in various circumstances, including:
- by a mother wishing to enforce child support obligations and receive assistance in rearing the child.
- by an alleged father to establish that they are not the father of a child in order to forego supporting a child that does not belong to them.
- by a father to establish parentage so that he may assert his rights to custody and/or visitation rights.
It’s very important that fathers wishing to establish their paternity rights under Texas law do so within the first 3 years of the child’s life. If parentage is not established by the time the child turns 3 years of age, a father could permanently lose many parental rights under Texas law.
