Richardson Paternity Attorney

Paternity proceedings involve parents who have had a child at a time in which they are not married. Often in paternity proceedings, parents are seeking to establish their right to child support, visitation or custody.

A father may need to bring a paternity action to establish that he is the biological father of the child. Prior to the time that a man is legally recognized as the biological father of a child, he has no visitation or custody rights. By contrast, the mother of the child may not obtain a child support order for the care of her children until the paternity of her child has been legally recognized.
