McKinney, Texas Paternity Lawyer
When a child is born to a married couple, paternity law presumes that the husband is the biological father. Unmarried couples who conceive children must take extra steps if a mother wants to establish paternity or a father is denying parentage. At the Law Offices of J. Gregory Whitten in McKinney, Texas, we have experience in paternity law.
It's an emotional time, but it's important to prepare for the rest of your life.
We represent mothers seeking to prove paternity and to collect the support that their child deserves. On the other hand, a new father may want a role in their baby's life and the mother may be denying any custody or visitation. An ex-boyfriend may deny parentage as well and wish to show legally that he is not the father. Either mother or alleged father can request a blood test to prove or disprove a DNA link to the child.
At The Law Offices of J. Gregory Whitten, we represent clients from all walks of life in issues of paternity. Whether it is challenging paternity or seeking to establish paternity test. It can be an emotional time, but it is important to get to the facts related to paternity so you can prepare your life for the result of the test.
