Paternity

Collin County, Texas, Paternity Lawyer

The Texas Legislature has stated that it is in the best interests of children to have two parents in their lives. In the case of presumed or alleged fatherhood, sometimes the child's right to know both parents must be enforced by determining paternity through a DNA test.

At the McKinney, Texas, law office of Barbara L. Jouette, Attorney, P.C., we represent mothers, presumed fathers, and alleged fathers in paternity disputes. If you wish to establish or dispute parental rights and obligations in a DNA test, contact us today. We will listen to your concerns in a free initial consultation and guide you through the legal process with personalized attention to your objectives.

Frequently, paternity cases are directly tied to conservatorship issues or the rights and duties of fathers. We have extensive experience in handling paternity cases as they relate to the enforcement of child support.

We actively advocate on both sides of these cases, in support of mothers wishing to enforce the obligations of a biological father, and in support of fathers wishing to establish parental rights and obligations. We also represent men who wish to contest paternity.

Fathers' rights are protected today in many ways that they previously were not, and fathers have rights today that they did not have before. Many organizations in the area are devoted to protecting fathers' rights. Our firm has established relationships with some of these organizations and can offer referrals to potential fathers seeking guidance and support beyond our legal services.
