Why does paternity matter?

If you are a father in Texas, it is important for you to know why matters of paternity are so significant for your family. The Texas Attorney General explains the psychological and lawful benefits of establishing fatherhood early.

On an emotional level, when your children know you, they know their place in the world. Being connected to your extended family provides your sons and daughters a link to generational history, which in turn ties them to a broader legacy. They can grow up confident in who they are and convinced of where they belong. This strength of identity will go a long way in helping them become healthy individuals who contribute positively to the world.

In addition to the psychological rewards, establishing paternity early offers you a number of legal advantages. Primarily, it is the lawful connection that allows you to invest in your children for the rest of your life. You may rightfully add their names to the beneficiary list on your medical, life and other insurance policies. You may also add your name to their certificates of birth, effectively asserting your claim that your children belong to you. 

While this assertion of fatherhood may seem insignificant, the Attorney General of Texas emphasizes that the entire family benefits from it. As already mentioned, those of you who are dads connect legally and emotionally when you stake your claim as a father. Children reap those rewards as well, and moms find a sense of safety because they do not need to worry about provision for their children.
