Paris makes his intentions known in Act III, Scene IV, lines 1-20. This scene takes place between Lord Capulet and Paris. Juliet is treated as a commodity, traded at the whim of her father. In lines 8-10, Paris says, "These times fo woe afford no time to woo./Madam, good night. Commend me to your daughter." Paris is saying that due to the recent death of Tybault and the subsequent unrest, there is "no time" to properly court Juliet (of course, he is more concerned with the affections of Romeo). He asks to be taken immediately to Juliet. Lord Capulet replies, "Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender/Of my child's love. I think she will be rul'd/In all respects by me; nay, more I doubt it not." The deal is done, he claims. He has no reason to think that a woman, and his daughter at that, will disobey.
