Paternity is not like a divorce proceeding. While some of the related issues, like child support, parental responsibility and time-sharing are the same, paternity differs for several reasons.
One of the biggest differences is that fathers cannot get custody with regard to the child until paternity has been determined. Unlike a divorce, there is no presumption that the father is the father. This means that many fathers are stuck on the sidelines while the case drags on. This waiting period affects mothers too. Mothers are often concerned with health insurance, medical expenses and child support they need for their children. We work hard to expedite the case as quickly as the courts allow.
The best way to learn about how Florida paternity laws apply in your particular situation is to talk with an attorney. To schedule a free initial consultation with us, contact our Miami law office by calling 305-888-7102or by e-mail at DennisLawCenter@gmail.com.
