Texas treats paternity or parentage establishing as a contested lawsuit.

The mother wishing to receive child support files the suit for support and the alledged father is served.

The father has the legal right to contest the suit and if he does a paternity test is ordered.

If he does not contest the charge or fails to appear at the hearing he will probably lose the suit by default and child support will be granted.

If the male signed an affidavit of acknowledgement of paternity upon the birth of the child it is extremely difficult to have the status changed.

The best option is to consult with or retain an attorney qualified in family law.

we are in the state of west Virginia
