Fathers’ rights do not only affect divorce

| Jan 3, 2016 | Uncategorized |

Oftentimes, when we talk about fathers’ rights, we are referring exclusively to a father’s chance at receiving fair custody in a divorce. Years of mothers being awarded sole custody more often than fathers have led to a well-deserved, if slightly inaccurate, belief that courts favor mothers over fathers in custody cases, or even that there is a general bias against men when it comes to matters of children and custody. For some, this bias is not about custody agreements after a divorce, but possibly even about paternity.

Paternity is a serious matter, as it affects the legal rights that a person may or may not have regarding a child, which can obviously affect the life of the child as well. And since a woman has a hard time lying about giving birth to a child, her word generally holds more weight than a man’s about parentage. If a woman has had multiple sexual partners, and she claims that a particular partner is the father of the child, courts will generally consider that man as the father, even if it is not true.

If you believe that you are the father of a child whose paternity is being denied by the mother, you can take legal action to establish paternity. Do not hesitate to exercise your rights as a father in order to prove who is truly the parent in the child’s life. This can include a simple signed statement or even a DNA test, depending on the circumstances.

The law in Texas is very clear when it comes to paternity, so do not hesitate to visit our webpage and learn how we can help you establish your rights and connect with your child. You deserve the right to be the father of your child.
