Establishing Paternity in Texas
Paternity is a word used to describe fatherhood. When a child is born outside of a marriage relationship and when there is any question as to who is the father of a child, a paternity test is required to establish parental rights and responsibilities. While it is ideal to establish paternity at the time of a child’s birth, this is not always possible.

It is important to seek legal help when a child’s father does not want to acknowledge paternity, when a child’s mother questions the paternity of a man claiming to be her child’s father, or when there is any doubt as to the paternity of a child. Establishing paternity enables a child to receive child support and a father to receive visitation rights. It also provides a child with the peace-of-mind of knowing who their father is and gives them the ability to monitor potential hereditary health problems.
