Pearland Paternity Attorney: Knowledge and Discretion
In many cases, a mother will seek to prove paternity of her child in order
to hold the father responsible for
child support. A father may wish to establish his paternity in order to obtain
child custody or visitation rights. When a woman is married at the time her child is
born, paternity is assumed to belong to her husband. However, in some
cases, a woman may seek a paternity action to establish that her husband
is not the child's father, in order to allow someone else to adopt
the child, or for other reasons. A man may seek an action to disprove
his paternity and renounce his responsibility for a child.
Whatever your reasons for seeking a paternity action, as a seasoned Pearland
divorce lawyer, I can help you through your case. My team and I are very
aware of the sensitive nature of paternity cases, and you can rest assured
that we will handle your case with skill and discretion. After paternity
