Dallas Paternity Attorney

In Texas, family law matters pertaining to children are determined by what will be in their best interests. Typically, what is best for a child’s overall well-being is to have access to both parents, if possible. Additionally, even if you were not married to the other parent, you both share rights and responsibilities with regard to parenting decisions, financial support and custody. The first step to achieving this balance is to establish paternity, which you can do so with the guidance of an experienced lawyer.

Trust your paternity case to the law firm of Lisa E. McKnight, P.C., in Dallas, Texas. Whether you are a mother seeking child support or a father who wants visitation rights, we can assist with all aspects of your case, from paternity testing to the finalization of child support, custody and/or visitation court orders. Our goal is to help you find the solution that is in the best interests of your children.

A Strong Advocate When You Need It Most

Do not assume that a verbal agreement for financial support or the ability to see your children is enough. Circumstances can change, and it is important to protect your legal rights — as well as the well-being of your children — by having official, legal orders in place.

Attorney Lisa McKnight has more than two decades of experience, and is a board-certified specialist* in family law. She understands that the process of establishing official paternity is not always easy, and is determined to advocate on your behalf and for your best interests at every step. Whenever possible, she will work toward an amicable solution. But she also knows this is not always possible, and is fully prepared to represent you in court.
