Assisting With Your Paternity Case

Under Florida law, when unmarried parents have a child together, the father is usually not recognized as the biological or legal father. In order for the father to have any legal right to have any input into educational, medical or day-to-day decisions in his child’s life, timesharing, and all other rights of parenting, a court order is required to establish a father’s legal status with regard to his child. Whether you are a mother or a father, to ensure a happy, stable and productive childhood for your child, it is important to establish not only the legal rights of the biological father, but also any duties of support as well as a set parenting plan through either mutual agreement or contested litigation if necessary.

Our lawyers can help walk you through the process of paternity and seek results you are looking for.
