Paternity Lawyer in Katy, TX
Resolving Paternity Disputes in West Houston
When an unmarried couple learns they will be having a child together, there may be some concerns about establishing paternity. Officially determining the identity of the father when the parents are not married is not as straightforward as it is for married couples.
Not addressing this issue could have major implications down the road, especially if the relationship deteriorates. It is extremely important that unmarried couples take the time to establish paternity to ensure the child has everything he or she needs moving forward.
The Katy paternity attorneys at The Springer Law Firm have helped both fathers and mothers discreetly resolve paternity questions. Our Katy paternity lawyers have 85 years of collective legal experience with family law and we understand the intense emotions that often arise in these types of situations.

Can a Mother Legally Keep Her Child Away from the Father in Texas?
In Texas, as in all states, mothers and fathers are equally obligated to support their children financially. However, this does not necessarily mean that each parent has equal access to the child or children. In some cases, a mother may choose to keep the child away from the father, either out of fear or because she believes that it is in the best interests of the child. While a mother may have some legal grounds to do this, it is important to seek the advice of a Katy paternity lawyer before taking any action. A qualified attorney will be able to help you understand your rights and obligations under Texas law and ensure that your child's best interests are protected.
