Lewisville Paternity Attorney

Establishing Parental Rights in Texas

When a child’s paternity is at issue, it is usually because:

  • The child’s mother is seeking her rightful entitlement to child support,
  • A man is seeking to disprove paternity in order to avoid supporting someone else’s child
  • The mother and father are in disagreement over the father’s custody and visitation rights

Regardless of the reason for the dispute, if the parties attempt to go at it alone, what would otherwise be a relatively simple matter can turn into a nightmare of uncertainties, disagreements, and red tape.

At Helene Parker & Associates, L.L.C., our Lewisville paternity attorneys represent mothers, fathers, and non-fathers in parental rights disputes throughout Lewisville, Denton, Flower Mound, and the surrounding areas.

To schedule a free consultation with a capable paternity lawyer, call (972) 218-0082.

Paternity Lawsuits Relating to Child Support

In Texas, a child’s biological father has the obligation to pay child support if he is not married to the child’s mother. On the same token, generally speaking, a man who is not a child’s biological father has no obligation to participate in that child’s upbringing.

When a child’s biological father refuses to pay child support, the child’s mother has the right to seek relief from the Texas courts to prove paternity, and compel payment of child support. If the father refuses to take a court-ordered paternity test he can be held in contempt, resulting in possible fines and jail time – in addition to still being compelled to submit to the test.

For men seeking to disprove paternity in order to avoid paying child support, we can help you establish your case and present it to the appropriate court. If necessary, we can also assist you in obtaining a discharge from a previously-imposed child support order.

Paternity Lawsuits Relating to Custody (Conservatorship) and Visitation Rights

When custody (conservatorship) and visitation rights are at issue, the shoe is typically on the other foot. In these cases, we help fathers prove their paternity, and then fight for their desired custody and visitation rights in court. If you are a mother seeking to fight an alleged father’s parental rights for any reason, we can help you in your situation as well.
