Paternity

Paternity Law in Texas has changed in recent years. Today proving paternity has become much easier because of DNA. Such technologically advanced techniques can establish paternity to a 99 percent probability. The paternity law provides for a new process that allows men to file petitions of mistaken paternity to challenge wrongful determinations that they are fathers and thus obligated to pay child support.

Attorneys at Palacios, Garza & Thompson, P.C. have experience in paternity law and using such methods to prove that a man is the father of a child in order to gain support for the child. Although DNA testing is most often used on behalf of the mother, we also represent fathers to establish paternity. Many father’s want to provide support and sometimes mothers want to restrict their parental rights. If you have questions about paternity law in Texas, contact our office today at (956) 205-0848.
