There is no question that divorce and custody of children can be a challenge to work through. However, this situation can be even more stressful when it involves parents who are not married. Establishing paternity will be important. You may need to seek help from a Texas child support lawyer.
Family law cases that involve parents who are not married can make child support and visitation rights difficult. However much of this can be eliminated if there is an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) or a court order is filed.
An AOP or court order establishes the legal rights of parents for a child and can impact his or her case in the following ways:
- your rights to visitation and/or custody;
- acknowledges the emotional and physical relationship with child;
- establishment of medical and child support (at a reasonable amount);
- allows collection of any past due child support payments; and
- allows child right to any inheritance or benefits of parent.
As a non-custodial parent, family law cases involving paternity and child support can be complicated. If you need legal help navigating through some of the common family problems that may arise, you should speak to a Texas child support lawyer to discuss your case.
