Parentage, when questioned, may be determined simply by using a paternity test. Paternity laws guarantee men and women the right to initiate a paternity action in order to clearly define parentage. While the process sounds simple enough, paternity cases are often complex and emotionally charged.

Once parentage is established, the father will share the responsibility of paying insurance premiums and uninsured child healthcare costs. This benefits not only the child, but the mother as well.

Possession and Access
A paternity judgment automatically establishes the parent-child relationship. Alternative provisions for possession and access exist under Texas paternity laws. A father who wishes to exercise his paternal rights may only do so by filing a separate action.
