Parentage/Paternity Law

Legally speaking, “paternity” refers to being the biological father of a child. With paternity comes a specific set of legal responsibilities and obligations. Emotionally, the impact of paternity can run far deeper. Whether you are seeking paternity rights over your child or denying that you are the father, a paternity attorney can be your best ally. With years of family law experience, Jennifer Espronceda will use her wealth of knowledge and passion for the truth to help you get the results you want. Why wade through complex legalities alone when Jennifer Espronceda is standing by to help?

Paternity can involve a host of legal and personal issues, including but not limited to:

  • The legitimacy of the child in question
  • Inheritance rights
  • The child’s legal last name
  • Child support
  • Custody
  • Managing conservatorship over the child
  • Visitation

When a child is born to a married couple, modern law presumes that the husband is the biological father. But what if this “presumption of paternity” is false? A paternity attorney can help you get to the truth of the matter. This may require paternity testing, which can be emotionally difficult for the whole family. An experienced family lawyer can help the process of refuting or establishing paternity to go as quickly and smoothly as possible, resulting in low emotional toll.

Jennifer Espronceda is a  well-versed paternity attorney and handles issues surrounding paternity, adoption, child custody, and child support.
