In the State of Florida, legal issues related to paternity are complex. Paternity actions are filed for various reasons. For example, a mother may choose to have a paternity test performed to attain child support from the child’s biological father; whereas, a man may request a paternity test to prove that he is the biological father of a child so he can attain timesharing rights or seek custody. Despite the reason for a paternity test request, hiring a Family Law attorney who is experienced in dealing with issues related to paternity prior to filing the action is essential.
Although you can ask the court to enforce child support following proof of paternity, litigation involving paternity can be highly emotional and time consuming. Additionally, it is not uncommon for the assumed party to have a fierce opposition to these actions. As your attorney, I can guide you through this complex process and negotiate on your behalf.
I help mothers and fathers who are interested in proving or refuting paternity in the courtroom. In the event that paternity is proven, I will aggressively seek a judgment for child support to ensure your child is well provided for.
