Florida Laws Concerning Paternity

Although legal parentage considers biological parentage, the best interests of the minor child take paramount significance when it comes to custody determinations. While laws provide many protections for a biological parent’s rights, such rights are not absolute. As a result, if you are confronted with a paternity issue, you should consult an experienced paternity attorney for advice.

Florida law recognizes a legal presumption of paternity in the following circumstances:

  • The child is born to parents who were married to each other at the time of birth
  • The father is listed on the child’s birth certificate and subsequently marries the mother before the time of birth
  • The father is listed on the child’s birth certificate and voluntarily signs an acknowledgment of paternity
