Paternity Cases

Paternity Cases

The unfortunate reality of today’s society is that many parents will refuse to assist in raising children or even deny being a parent to them. However, the denial of parenthood does not set aside the parent’s obligations.

Whether you are a mother wanting to prove that a man is the father of your child, or a man concerned with the possibility of being the father, our team of Dallas – Fort Worth family law attorneys will provide you with effective and aggressive representation to establish paternity or to disprove it.

Parenting in today’s society is difficult as it is. Regardless of the circumstances, two (2) individuals were responsible for bringing a child into the world. The same two (2) parents are responsible for raising that child. Paternity suits are generally filed when a child is born out of wedlock, or when a husband in a marriage may not be the biological father of his wife’s child. It is important to have an experienced family law attorney handle paternity cases in order to:

(1) Helping a man who has been wrongly named as the father and seeks to prove otherwise with the help of DNA,

(2) Allowing a parent to have custody and/or visitation rights of a child over whom he or she has no rights,

(3) Helping a spouse who has doubts about whether a child is indeed his or her child,

(4) Allowing the mother of a child or the mother expecting a child to seek child support from the alleged father.
