Paternity According To Florida Law

Each state has its own set of laws regarding paternity, so it’s important to have a basic understanding of Florida laws to know how paternity is established, how paternity suits generally work and what you can expect to encounter in court.

First, paternity is presumed whenever a child is born to a married mother; her husband is automatically identified as the father and listed on the birth certificate. However, that man is not always the child’s father, and therefore paternity must be corrected in some situations. On the other hand, there is no presumed paternity for a child born out of wedlock.

One can establish paternity in Florida in one of two ways:

  • Voluntarily, which means that both parents are in agreement on who the father is and submit an acknowledgement of paternity to the state, and
  • Court action, in which a judge determines who the child’s father is (which usually requires genetic testing), in addition to the father’s rights and responsibilities.

Our knowledgeable Apopka men’s paternity lawyers can help you determine the best course of action after examining your specific situation.

Who Can File A Paternity Action In Florida?

Any woman who is pregnant or has a child, any man who has reason to believe that he is the father of a child, or any child may bring forth actions to determine the paternity of the child in question when it has not been established by law or others. The results of these actions can have significant implications for child support, custody, visitation, and inheritance rights.

Benefits Of Filing A Paternity Action With The Aid Of Our Skilled Apopka Men’s Paternity Lawyers

Men gain a host of advantages by establishing paternity and pursuing legal rights to their children. First and foremost, you can solidify an emotional bond and help your child gain a deep sense of identity and stability. It is a proven fact that children who grow up with both parents playing an active role in their life tend to be more emotionally stable, develop stronger relationship skills, and perform better academically.

Moreover, you gain the legal right to custody, visitation, and decision-making authority. This means you have a say in your child’s education, medical care, religious practices, and more. Our Apopka men’s paternity lawyers are passionate about fighting for fathers’ rights in Florida, because we know the positive impact this can make in the lives of everyone involved, and on society as a whole!

Fighting Paternity Allegations

While we fight tirelessly for fathers and men seeking paternity, we fight just as hard for those implicated in paternity suits for children they do not believe to have fathered. It is unfair for any man to face the emotional and financial burden that being the legal father of a child brings, and our Apopka men’s paternity lawyers will help you take the appropriate legal action to ensure the truth is brought to light!
