While you may not be able to change the past, with the help of an experienced Florida paternity rights lawyer, you can protect your rights and the rights of your child. By establishing paternity, you will ensure that you will take part in the privileges and responsibilities of parenthood, or get the support you need to raise your child.
- Father’s Rights: If a child is born to two single parents outside of marriage, in order for a father to be able to claim custody or parenting time, he must establish paternity. With paternity determined, fathers gain the rights of shared parenting that come with legal fatherhood.
- Child Support: If you are a mother wanting to obtain child support for the child from the father, paternity must be proved. A biological father without legal paternity has no obligation to pay child support.
- Paternity Fraud: If you have been challenged or charged to pay child support for a child that is not your own, there are legal actions you can take to contest paternity.
- Presumption of Paternity: In the case of a married couple, Florida courts will presume that the husband is the father of a child.
In all cases, you need attorneys who are experienced in Florida paternity rights to guide you swiftly through the process.
