When you are faced with a family conflict, or any legal issue that involves your marriage or children, you need a legal professional who has the skill, experience, and commitment to properly protect your interests.
When you need to legally establish yourself as a father to obtain custody or visitation rights, wish to challenge a claim that you are a child’s father, or are interested in pursuing child support from the father of your child, you will need to deal with a paternity action. A paternity lawsuit may be necessary so you can assert your parental rights, or to address an issue related to child support or custody.
Certain time limitations may exist regarding the establishment of paternity. Our Austin paternity attorneys at Rachel Moyle Law, PLLC have handled paternity cases throughout Central Texas and have the experience to advocate for your interests in such matters. As Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization attorneys, we are specialists in this field of law and are fully qualified to address any concerns you may have.
In 2011, the Texas Legislature passed laws to address the issue of “mistaken paternity.” With this law, a man who has been mistakenly identified as the father of a child can file a lawsuit to challenge a prior order establishing paternity. “Mistaken paternity” describes a situation where a man has either signed an acknowledgment of paternity or has been determined by court order to be the father of a child, but the man is not actually the child’s biological father and did not know at the time that he was not the biological father.
