Houston Paternity Lawyer

Representing Parents in Complex & Contentious Cases

DNA paternity testing allows parents to determine who the father of a child is. Knowing the name of the father makes it possible to obtain child support. It also gives the father parental rights, allowing him to be involved in the child’s life through inclusion in a parenting plan.

At the Law Offices of Frank E. Mann, P.C., we work with both mothers and fathers on paternity issues. We advise them about their rights and their options when there are questions about the paternity of a child.

Determining Paternity Brings Rights & Responsibilities

If a man is found to be the parent of a child through a paternity test, he can be held liable for child support and medical insurance. He can also be awarded visitation rights or primary custody of a child.

At the Law Offices of Frank E. Mann, P.C., we file lawsuits for clients to clarify fathers’ rights and responsibilities when there are unresolved questions about paternity.

When you are unmarried, some of these suits – called Suits Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR) – can result in a SAPCR order that provides visitation rights to fathers. A lawsuit can force a father to undergo genetic testing to determine paternity. If a father denies that he is the father of a child and genetic testing proves him wrong, he may be liable for court costs and legal fees because the test has established paternity.

Assisting with All Types of Paternity Cases

Attorney Frank Mann has extensive experience advising fathers and mothers about complex paternity issues. If you have been ordered to pay child support and a paternity test reveals you are not the father, we can help. If your wife just told you that you are not the father of one of your children, we can counsel you about your options with regard to that child. If your girlfriend is pregnant and you believe you are not the father, we can tell you about your obligations and your choices.

Each case is different. We have handled many such cases over the last three decades and are ready to apply that experience to your unique case.
