There are many reasons a man may be looking to establish paternity. It could be that you were never married to the mother of your child and are seeking custody. Maybe you married a single mother and are looking to establish your paternal access to her child.
In situations like these, a Suit Affecting Parent Child Relationship or SAPCR can help. Filing this lawsuit will begin a conversation with the court regarding your role in the child’s life, including questions on providing financial support, sharing a residence, or making decisions about their education and medical needs, among other subjects. An existing SAPCR can also be modified after some time, should an existing order no longer meet the needs of you and your co-parent.
