How to Establish Paternity in Texas
In Texas, there are at least three ways to establish paternity, depending on the relationship between the father and mother. The following are some of the most common examples of how paternity is established:
- If the parents are married at the time of birth, then the child will be legally presumed to be the father of the child. If the father is someone other than the husband, the husband must typically complete a Denial of Paternity before the biological father will be recognized.
- If the parents are unmarried, they may sign a notarized Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP) form. This is a basic and very common form.
- If you are unsure of paternity, you will need to establish paternity through the courts. This will generally require a scientific genetic paternity test. Establishing paternity through the courts can also be used if the presumed father refuses to sign a Denial of Paternity.
