Why Establishing Paternity Matters

Establishing paternity provides a legal basis for determining important matters related to the child’s well-being, including child custody, child support and visitation. It also gives the child access to important benefits, such as medical insurance, inheritance and other legal rights

Establishing Paternity In Texas

IIn Texas, paternity can be established in several ways, including:

  • Voluntary Acknowledgment – If both parents agree that the man is the child’s father, they can sign a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form.
  • Court Order – If the father disputes paternity or if the mother and father cannot agree on paternity, a court order may be necessary.
  • Genetic Testing – If paternity is in dispute, the court may order genetic testing to determine whether the man is the child’s biological father.

When you are able to establish paternity, it can help you toward the next steps of negotiating child custody and support.
