Establish Paternity Protecting Your Rights Through a Personalized Approach

Establishing Paternity in Florida

Get Counsel from a Miami Family Law Attorney

The biological relationship between a father and child is referred to as paternity. Unlike maternity, paternity is not automatically established at birth in cases where a child is born to an unmarried mother. If the paternity of your child has been challenged or if you want to prove the paternity of your children, consult a family law lawyer. An experienced family law lawyer from Mitchell & West LLC can help you legally establish paternity and resolve any disputes.

Paternity can affect a wide range of different matters, including:

After paternity is established, we can help you create custody orders, support orders, and visitation plans.

Reasons to Establish Paternity

If you are the biological father of a child to whom you are not being allowed to visit, you may want to establish paternity to gain visitation rights or custody. However, if you are not the biological father of a child and are being asked to pay support, you may want to prove that you do not have paternity. Once paternity is established, a child can benefit from many of the benefits of a father-child relationship, child support, access to medical coverage through the father, and more. Whatever the case may be, our attorneys and legal staff are here to assist you.
