Fathers' Rights in Johnson County & Greater Fort Worth
As the father of a child, it is important to recognize that you may be able to obtain various rights to the child, as well as responsibilities along with those rights. If you are considering undergoing or requesting a test to ensure the accurate family information of a child, call the Burleson paternity attorneys at Coontz Cochran for a free consultation about how to proceed.
Establishing Paternity in Johnson County
In Texas, a child born outside of wedlock has no legal father—keep in mind, there is a difference between a biological father and a legal father. When an acknowledgement of paternity is filed, then this will help secure the legal rights of the child.
The benefits to establishing paternity may include the following, among others:
- Child custody rights
- Visitation rights
- The child will have access to your medical history
- The child can be placed on your insurance
If you are seeking to establish paternity, then it is important to understand the various methods by which you may do this.
There are two ways to establish paternity in the state of Texas:
- Fill out an Acknowledgement of Paternity in the hospital at the time that the child is born
- Access an Application for Paternity Services online, or by calling the office of the Attorney General
