Paternity and family law

Many Texas residents may have seen advertisements for a popular new item. A home DNA test is meant to provide consumers with the opportunity to learn more about their genealogy, and has become a trendy gift item. The tests usually cost under $100, and while they are meant to be fun and educational, some consumers have gotten results that seem to stress the importance of establishing paternity as a matter of family law. 

Dear Santa, can you help with child custody?

Texas families are in a mad and merry dash to finish last-minute holiday preparation. Gifts, family get-togethers, big meals and other revelry are certainly things to look forward to. One of the most exciting moments for a parent can be watching the joy on a child's face as they take in the wonder of the holiday season. Unfortunately, not every child has the opportunity to have a loving, supportive family, but with a little Christmas magic and a change in child custody, dreams can come true.

A court order usually details matters like where a child lives, the amount of parenting time each parent has and other aspects of co-parenting. Some parents may occasionally find themselves at odds, especially when it comes time to calculate child support.
