Pearland Paternity Attorneys: 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 seasoned paternity lawyers in Pearland, TX, we can help you through your case. Our entire team is very aware of the sensitive nature of paternity cases, and you can rest assured that we will handle your case with skill and discretion.
