Paternity Statues in Texas
The main purpose of paternity statutes in Texas is to establish the relationship of fathers to children born outside of marriage. At Tylka Law Firm, in League City, Texas, we represent mothers and fathers in these proceedings, taking a common-sense approach that looks out for their best interests.
In many cases, paternity actions are required before a father can be required to pay child support. Before the court makes a paternity ruling, a DNA test may be required.
Paternity actions may also be brought by fathers to help establish fathers’ rights to time with their children. These fathers want to gain the status of legal parent and have the ability to ask for child custody or visitation rights.
At Tylka Law Firm, we are dedicated to protecting parents’ relationships with their children. We know that each family is unique and we tailor the approach we take to meet those unique needs. We talk with you about your goals, then create a legal strategy designed to achieve those goals quickly and effectively.
Many people who face legal challenges have questions about family law issues that relate to paternity, like child custody, visitation and child support. The Tylka Law Firm can answer your questions, providing free initial consultations with a divorce lawyer.
