Paternity

Experienced Paternity Lawyer Based in Harris County, Texas

Under the Texas Family Code, if a married woman gives birth to a child, her current husband is presumed to be the father. When handling divorce litigation, we have encountered situations involving suspected or established extramarital affairs, in which it was necessary for the father to initiate DNA testing to establish or disprove paternity.

More commonly, an unmarried woman initiates a paternity action in order to establish the father’s responsibility for child support. If you are a father wishing to challenge that paternity action, you must do so quickly if you hope to avoid the possibility of a large back-due child support obligation. You can contact us for dependable legal information and help from an attorney experienced in dealing with both of these challenging situations.
