Using Paternity Petitions To Protect Your Rights
A petition to establish paternity is the legal procedure to use for unmarried mothers and fathers in Texas. For a father, it will establish his legal rights to the child and can help him obtain custody and visitation rights.
It may also be a necessary procedure for a mother to obtain child support payments. It can also clarify genetic health issues if they are potentially present.
Obviously, it is in the child’s best interest to have as much of a meaningful relationship with both parents as possible. That said, the paternity process can be complex, which is why experienced legal representation is essential.
Even after establishment of paternity by completing and filing an acknowledgement of paternity, however, issues can surface regarding the role of the father in the child’s life, or a mother’s refusal to grant custody. As such, additional legal action may be necessary.
If you and your loved one(s) are working through any paternity issue, it is important to partner with a strong legal team that will advocate for you — aggressively, if need be.
