Sorting Out Issues Of Paternity, Custody And Support
When men and women have a dispute over paternity, Mara Law, P.A., understands their special circumstances and their rights and responsibilities under the law. Our Florida paternity lawyers regularly represent unmarried parents whose disputes over child support and child custody hinge on the question of paternity. We represent mothers who seek financial support and fathers who want visitation or custody or who deny paternity. If fatherhood is in dispute, a court can order.
Paternity is established the following ways:
- The parents are married to each other when the child is born.
- The unmarried couple signs a legal document in the hospital when the child is born or afterward.
- Genetic testing proves fatherhood, and the judge issues an order determining paternity.
- The mother and natural father get married to each other after the child is born and update the birth record through the Florida Office of Vital Statistics.
A Daytona Beach family law attorney with our firm guides you through the process of establishing or denying paternity while sheltering the child from harmful fallout from the dispute.
