Esparza, P.C., we recognize that military divorce involves special considerations, and we have helped many people involved in military divorces pursue solutions that meet their needs.

What is paternity fraud?

As a Texas father, no one need tell you that while your child's biological mother was easily determined when she gave birth to him or her, establishing his or her biological father is not nearly so simple.
