Guidance With Paternity Matters For Fathers And Mothers In Florida

When a child is born and the parents are not named, the sole legal guardian of the child is the mother. A father has to legally establish himself as the father. Before that happens, sometimes many couples simply arrange for an informal visitation arrangement or child support agreement.

However, such agreements are not legally binding and can and do often cause conflict because the father is not recognized as the legal father until paternity is entered.

In order to fully establish a father’s legal rights to time sharing and decision-making power over the child as well as a mother’s right to child support, parties are encouraged to proceed through the process known as a paternity action to ascertain these rights.
