Paternity in Florida

Before you can take action to assert your rights as a father, you must first establish paternity. In the eyes of the law, a father establishes paternity either by submitting an Acknowledgement of Paternity document signed by both parents, or with confirmation from a court-ordered DNA test. Once paternity has been established, the father may be entitled to certain rights as a parent under Florida state laws, which can make it possible for him to pursue custody or visitation rights. Or, it could be used to request child support payments from the father.

Understanding Your Legal Rights as a Father

After paternity has been established, it is important for the father to consider what role he wants in his child’s life. A father’s rights attorney can help establish paternity and can also help fathers fight for certain rights, including time with their child, a legal say in the upbringing of their child, and other crucial parenting factors. Depending on the situation, fathers might fight for custody, visitation rights, or might pursue child support payments from the mother. Whatever your situation, our firm can work with you to determine the best course of action to fight for your ideal parenting position.
