Skilled Help With Paternity Cases

Being a parent comes with both rights and responsibilities. When children are born to parents who are not married, legal action must be taken to establish those rights and responsibilities for fathers.

With help from a lawyer from Joseph Brophy Cordell, Attorney at Law, you can rest assured we will do what is necessary to establish your parental rights and enforce them in a court of law. We represent fathers looking to establish paternity and enforce their right to parent and mothers who need to establish paternity to obtain child support orders.

Straightforward Advice To Protect Your Rights

When a couple is expecting a child or there is already a newborn at home, it can be easy to let legal formalities take a back seat to sleepless nights and excitement. However, it is crucial for nonmarried parents to take the necessary steps to establish paternity so they can protect their interests in the future.

With more than 20 years of experience, we help clients understand the process of establishing paternity and take the time to explain the legal consequences that could affect their lives forever. If a parent is uncertain, we recommend that a DNA test be completed so that paternity can be confirmed and documented to avoid future contentions.
