Paternity Actions In Florida
When a child is born to married parents, the husband is automatically presumed to be the biological father. When a child is born to unmarried parents, the mother is the natural guardian. The father does not have the legal rights or responsibilities of a parent until paternity is established through the courts.
Mothers often file paternity actions to obtain child support or to ensure that the father follows a time-sharing schedule. Fathers often file paternity suits because the mother is denying visitation or they would like to solidify their relationship with their child.
Our family law attorneys represent both mothers and fathers in establishing paternity and working through the rights and responsibilities that go along with it. We will help you create a time-sharing schedule that allows both parents to build a strong relationship with your child. Additionally, we can help you calculate child support and enforce child support agreements.
