Law Office of Jon R. Boyd
If a child is born outside of marriage, a mother may want to legitimize her child and obtain child support from the father or a father may want to legitimize his child and guarantee his right to have custody of or a relationship with his child.
If a proper court order is entered declaring someone the legal father of a child, it will almost certainly not be able to be changed later. Additionally, there may be a time limit on the ability to dispute or establish paternity. Not knowing your rights and duties in this area may have far-reaching and binding impact.
Attorney Jon Boyd is able to guide you in this area. For qualified counsel regarding paternity issues in Plano, Collin County, or anywhere in North Texas, contact us now to schedule a free initial consultation.
