Sometimes DNA testing is required to prove the parent of a child. Mothers and alleged fathers have different legal concerns when it comes to paternity. A potential father usually has two reasons for requesting paternity.
The first is to determine if he should pay child support and the second is to establish visitation or custody. A mother may wish to enforce a paternity test so the identity of the father is known and child support & visitations can be enforced.
In either case, paternity is a legal issue that affects families. I am a family lawyer, Board Certified in Texas, and I help both men and women in paternity matters. Contact San Antonio Lawyers to find out how my legal services can help you make positive decisions about the life of your child.
Paternity Services for Alleged Fathers
If you suspect you are the father of a child, DNA testing is the most effective way of proving parentage. Once the identity of a father is established, he can seek parental rights, including child custody and visitation. Additionally, a mother can enforce child support payments once the father’s identity is known.
I provide legal services to men who are looking to determine parentage of a child through a DNA test. Once the identity of a father is established, I can assist in child custody, visitation, and child support matters.
Paternity Services for Mothers
I provide legal representation to single mothers looking to establish the identity of their child’s father. It can be hard to support a child on only one income. Once the identity of the father has been legally established, I work with mothers to enforce child support payments from the father.
