Paternity Matters

Biological Fathers and Legal Fathers Are Not the Same Thing

In Florida, while the biological father can now be proven through a DNA test, the legal father is still established by judgement.

If you’re married at the time the child is born, the mother’s husband becomes the legal father.  He has all the paternal rights and responsibilities.

If you are not married, however, the biological father is not automatically granted those rights and responsibilities.

You may be the mom and need to establish the legal father for purposes of child support.

You may be the biological father and need to establish yourself as the legal father to gain visitation and parenting rights.

Or you may need to establish or modify an existing paternity judgement.

Whatever your paternity-related matter, our team is dedicated to helping you through every step of the paternity process.
