Paternity

Houston Paternity Attorney

If you are seeking to establish paternity or if you want to challenge an allegation of paternity, it is important to consult with an attorney who can inform you of your paternity rights and the legal implications of a paternity action. At The Alsandor Law Firm, we are experienced in representing both clients seeking to establish paternity for the purposes of custody, visitation or support as well as clients seeking to challenge or disestablish the paternity of a child.

We take a comprehensive approach to paternity cases to protect the rights of both mothers and fathers in cases involving support, visitation and custody. For more information about your paternity rights in a paternity action, please contact The Alsandor Law Firm.

Establishing Paternity for Custody, Visitation or Child Custody

Our attorney is board certified in family law by the Texas Board Legal Specialization and has extensive experience in paternity cases, especially those involving custody, visitation or child custody disputes. If you are a father seeking to establish paternity rights for custody or visitation or a mother seeking to challenge a custody order, we can protect your rights and the best interests of your children.

Establishing Paternity Rights for Support

We represent mothers seeking to establish paternity rights in order to collect child support. Our attorney can help you obtain a court ordered DNA test to collect child support. If you are pregnant or have recently had a child and want to establish parentage to ensure support income for the child, please contact us for an immediate consultation or case evaluation.

Challenging a Paternity Allegation

If you want to disestablish paternity rights or challenge a paternity allegation, it is important that you take legal action as soon as possible. Once you are determined to be the father of the child and you begin to pay support, it is difficult, often impossible, to set aside paternity through the court. The court is interested in protecting the best interest of the child and that includes making sure the child receives support, even if the paternity is attributed to a non-biological father.

Paternity Disputes Involving Older Children

Sometimes paternity cases arise when children are older. The father returns and wants to be a part of those children's lives. If you are a mother seeking to prevent custody or visitation of an estranged father or you are a father who wants visitation or custody of your older children, please contact our office for more information about your paternity rights.
