Paternity & Parentage in Texas

What Is a Parentage/Paternity suit?

Dad holding his son

A parentage/paternity suit is filed in order to confirm or prove the identity of a child’s parent (primarily a father). The establishment of a parent-child relationship has a far-reaching impact, including the Court’s ability to order child support, visitation, and/or a parent’s rights to a child. For these reasons, it is often wise to consult with a League City Paternity Lawyer even before the child is born. A parentage case is for fathers, mothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, same-sex marriage parents, etc. In League City, Rob Musemeche is experienced in parentage law, the latest DNA testing technologies, and other methods for establishing or disproving the parent-child relationship.

Parentage cases should not be taken lightly, and that’s why legal representation is a must. If you are named in a paternity case, it means that the mother of the child is trying to establish that you are the legal father. If you are involved in a parentage case, then you’ll want to talk to an experienced League City paternity lawyer right away to help guide you through the legal process. In League city, Rob Musemeche is Board Certified in Family Law, and has been trusted since 1988 by clients in parentage, divorce and child custody cases.

You may have received a court order to appear before a judge. This is a serious matter that should not be ignored, and you will want to have an experienced League City paternity lawyer to represent you and advise you of your rights.  We never recommend that clients represent themselves. At Musemeche Law, PC, we will provide you with the best support and representation during this anxious and exciting time.

Often, the Attorney General’s Office is the party who initiates the case. They represent the State of Texas – not you. The Office of the Texas Attorney General (OAG) will bring a parentage case if a parent applies for state benefits. The OAG can bring cases for child support, possession of children (visitation) and parental rights, but these cases are mostly for child support. There is also the child support review process. If you are involved in or are noticed for any hearing and/or meeting where the Attorney General is involved, it is advisable to hire an attorney right away.

Rob Musemeche is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and can provide the legal support you need to learn your rights and options in this very important area of family law in League City and throughout the Houston -Galveston Bay area.
