Paternity Attorney in Sugar Land

Helping Fathers Protect Their Parental Rights

In order to obtain child support or to establish visitation and custody rights, paternity must be established. It can be established automatically if the child is born during the course of a marriage or if a father signs an acknowledgment of paternity. If the father is unsure as to whether he is the biological parent of the child, a DNA test can be conducted. Paternity is covered under Texas Family Code, Chapter 160, and can be quite complicated to understand on your own. Let our Sugar Land paternity lawyer at Kutty Law Firm, PLLC help you navigate the process of establishing paternity.

Why Hire a Family Lawyer for Paternity Matters?

Establishing paternity secures a father’s rights as a parent. If two parties have a child together but are not legally married and the parties separate, it can complicate parental rights. Children have the right to receive financial support from both parents. A court cannot order an alleged father to pay child support until paternity has been established.

A court order must establish paternity before a father can request:

  • Custody
  • Visitation rights

A father also cannot be asked to pay child support unless paternity has been established. In addition, children are entitled to benefits, such as social security, insurance, inheritance, and veteran’s benefits, from both parents if they are available. A child might not be able to claim benefits from the father if paternity has not been established.
