Pearland Paternity Attorneys: Knowledge and Discretion

In many cases, a mother will seek to prove paternity of her child in order to hold the father responsible for child support. A father may wish to establish his paternity in order to obtain child custody or visitation rights. When a woman is married at the time her child is born, paternity is assumed to belong to her husband. However, in some cases, a woman may seek a paternity action to establish that her husband is not the child’s father, in order to allow someone else to adopt the child, or for other reasons. A man may seek an action to disprove his paternity and renounce his responsibility for a child.
