Dallas paternity attorney Mark Nacol of the Nacol Law Firm PC says If you have been paying child support in Texas, due to a mistaken belief that you were the father, the time to act is now. The new Texas Mistaken Paternity Law deadline to file is September 1, 2012.
Dallas paternity and divorce attorney, Mark Nacol, says Texas has a new law, Texas SB785, which permits men who have been ordered to pay child support, without genetic testing, to request genetic testing in order to determine whether they are the genetic parent of the child. But the clock is ticking. If you suspect that you are paying child support for a child who is not your biological child, you must file the petition before September 1, 2012.
