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

Cheryl Alsandor 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.

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me. D.

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.

My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
