Fighting for the Rights of Father’s in Destin

It’s important for children of divorced households to have both of their parents play a substantial role in their life. When both parents spend time with their children after their divorce, the child knows that their needs come first. Unfortunately for some fathers, reaching a fair custody agreement can be a real challenge.

If you are a father in need of assistance protecting your legal rights, you should consult with our team of skilled lawyers to find out what we can do for you. From modifying your child support orders to determining paternity, we have the resources and experience that you need to obtain a fair case result.

Paternity Testing

To peruse your legal rights as a parent, our legal team will review the details of your case and file a paternity case. Establishing your paternity is a crucial step for determining a fair custody arrangement and parental responsibilities.

To prove that you are the paternal parent of a child, you will need to submit an Acknowledgment of Paternity to the court. Although this document is generally signed by both parents after the child’s birth, it can be completed at a later date. Once the court approves the Acknowledgment of Paternity, it can make a ruling on time-sharing and parental responsibilities.

If the mother of the child refuses to acknowledge you as the biological parent, we can help you seek a court ordered DNA test and use the results to establish your paternity. It is important to note that establishing paternity is just the first step, you will need to take further legal action. Our team will guide you through each step of your case and make sure that your interests are fully protected.

Time-Sharing Agreements & Parental Responsibilities

Once we have gone through the process for establishing paternity, we will work on a plan for sharing time with the child and allocating parental responsibilities. We are dedicated to helping fathers have a relationship with their child, which is why we strive to reach an amicable agreement between both parents. Although we would like to resolve your case without having to go to court, we are prepared to do so in order to preserve your rights as a father.
