Paternity Lawyer in Dallas

Helping Fathers Claim Parental Rights

An acknowledgment of paternity is a document both parents must sign to identify the father of the child. This is unnecessary when the couple is married because the father’s paternity is established by legal presumption. In some cases, paternity outside of marriage must be acknowledged through a court order. Establishing paternity grants the father the ability to pursue all of his legal rights and responsibilities.

Some rights a father can pursue after establishing paternity are:

  • Parenting plans
  • Visitation
  • Custody
  • Guardianship
  • Financial support

If you are looking to establish paternity to secure rights and care for your child, call us at (214) 273-6959 to schedule your consultation with our dedicated Dallas lawyer.

Establishing Custody

One reason a man may want to establish paternity is if he is the biological father and is unmarried to the biological mother, but wants to have custody rights over his child. If you are a biological father and are not able to see your child because the mother is denying your paternity, all is not lost. Our team at Kamuche Law Firm, PLLC can help.

Determining Child Support Payments

Establishing paternity becomes a practical necessity when child support payments are concerned. We passionately defend the rights of mothers in receiving financial support so that their children are taken care of. We also fight earnestly for men who are wrongfully forced to make payments when they have not been identified as the biological father.

Terminating Paternity

If you have mistakenly signed an acknowledgment of paternity, or mistakenly believed you were the father during a court proceeding, you may be able to terminate your paternity. You must meet other specific requirements and file a petition to terminate the parent-child relationship based on mistaken paternity within two years of realizing your mistake. After filing, the process of terminating paternity can be lengthy and complex.

Contact our paternity lawyer in Dallas to handle your paperwork and answer any questions you may have about your case. Call (214) 273-6959 to get started!
