Family Law Attorneys in Florida
Florida has seen a sharp increase in paternity cases over the years due to a trend in our society of children being born out of wedlock. It is typically best to file for a paternity judgement as soon as possible if the child’s birth certificate doesn’t have the father’s name on it. In Florida, if the mother is not married at the time of her child’s birth, it doesn’t have a legal father. Legal paternity is something that will need to be established for the child. If both parents don’t sign an acknowledgement of paternity when the child is born, then paternity has not been established.
