In Texas, establishing parentage through paternity action is in the best interest of the child because it means that once the father is identified, the child will receive the benefits of child support and coverage from another parent for uninsured child healthcare costs.

Of course, the financial obligations for a father that follows establishing paternity benefits the mother as well as she is no longer made to shoulder the entire burden.
