Texas residents who have experienced paternity issues may be interested in a story recently reported by a Detroit TV station. The story is about a man who has to pay over $30,000 in child support. The man's problems started when an ex designated him as her child's father when she filed for welfare benefits. It was in the early 1900s that the man first became aware of having been named the child's father.
Marriage isn't for everyone and it is not uncommon for children to be born out of wedlock. This needn't be a problem as, after all, parents can love their children just as much whether they're married or not. However, it is important for unmarried parents to be aware of their rights, as they may find their marital status affects their legal relationship with their children. This is particularly important for fathers, as they may find that they need to prove their paternity status.
