Pearland Paternity Law Firm
Paternity suits attempt to establish the parentage of a child. However, the reasons and circumstances surrounding paternity suits are far from simple. The Houston family lawyers of Nichols Law have the experience and skill to take on any paternity action, not only in our home state of Texas, but around the world. We represent people elsewhere in the United States and overseas. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
Paternity suits may be staged by:
The Mother: Often mothers need to establish paternity in order to get child support from the biological father. While paternity tests do not claim 100% reliability, a test that indicates a 95% or better probability is taken as extremely good evidence by the courts.
The Alleged Father: Sometimes a man going through a divorce claims that a child is not his biological child. He must make this contention known before the divorce is concluded or he will likely waive his rights to be relieved of child support obligations.
Paternity rights cases can also be instituted by children, others claiming to be the father, government agencies, and more. No matter what the situation, the family lawyers of our firm have dealt with it. For many years, the attorneys of Nichols Law, P.L.L.C., have provided thoughtful, skilled family law practice to Texas and beyond. We are never afraid to take a case to court.

But we recognize that each case is special, and we are always available to take your questions.
