Reasons to Establish Paternity

There are two primary reasons individuals seek to establish parentage or engage a paternity lawyer: issues involving child support and issues involving child custody.

A mother may request a paternity test and file a paternity suit to establish parentage and enforce child support obligations. A father may file a paternity suit to avoid paying child support for a child who is not his. He may also wish to establish his paternity and gain child custody and visitation rights.

Our experienced Frisco paternity lawyers can help you understand the paternity action you face while protecting your rights and legal interests.

Who We Represent

At Pfister Family Law, we represent both mothers and potential fathers in paternity actions. We are quite familiar with the legal process and can advise you as to whether filing a paternity suit is your best option.

If you are a mother seeking the child support you are owed from your child’s father, we can help you hold the father accountable. Our paternity action will likely require the alleged father to submit to a DNA test.

If you are a father seeking custody of your child, we can help you submit a claim and guide you through the lawsuit. If you are the biological father, you have custody rights as a parent, and we want to help establish and protect them.

If you are a father who denies parentage of a child, we can represent you during the paternity action. You will remain informed about the process and the status of your case along the way.
