Helping You Enforce Your Rights Through Paternity
Establishing paternity is crucial so you can enforce your right to child support or custody and visitation (also called possession and access). However, the process of establishing paternity is complex and filled with red tape. Our team at The Law Offices of Stacy D. Henderson, PLLC, has extensive experience in family law matters including paternity.
We feel proud to help clients throughout Texas, Arkansas and Georgia who need to enforce their parental rights. We are also fluent in American Sign Language.
How Do I Establish Paternity?
When a baby is born to married parents, the state automatically assumes that the husband is the child’s biological father. When a baby is born to unmarried parents, things are more complicated. Please contact our office for more details.
Even if one man’s name is on the birth certificate, another man can petition the court for a DNA test and, if it confirms his lineage, file a petition for legal paternity to enforce his right to access, possession and child support.
Thorough Knowledge Of The Petitioning Process
We understand that this is likely a very stressful time in your life. Our family law team understands the administrative steps thoroughly, allowing us to guide you with confidence. You can have the reassurance that we will manage your paternity petition as quickly and cost-effectively as possible so you can enforce your rights as a parent.
