What is meant by presumption of paternity?

In Texas, there are certain situations in which paternity is presumed without any genetic testing. In these cases, a presumed father might be the actual biological father of a child. However, a presumed father might also object, claiming not to be the actual biological father. It is helpful to understand under what conditions a presumption of paternity is made and how to rebut such a presumption if there is a disagreement with that presumption.

What to expect on the day of the divorce

A legal marriage creates a hybrid entity of the two people getting married. Certain forms must be observed at the time of the dissolution of the union, after which the couple will be legally rendered asunder and no longer considered a combined being from the point of view of the state of Texas. All required classes must be completed and certificates must be obtained before the divorce will be allowed. For example, a divorce between two parents cannot be finalized if they have not completed a court-ordered parenting course.

Modyfing parenting plans in Texas

Parents in Texas may benefit from understanding more about the modifications available for those who need to change their parenting plan. Any modifications made to an existing parenting plan must be in accordance with the child's best interest. In order to receive a modification to an existing plan, courts typically require some substantial change in a parent's or child's living condition.
