What are legal consequences when paternity is established in Florida?

In Florida, paternity must be established before a father has legal rights to his child if he was not married to the mother at the time of birth. Either the mother or the father can file the petition to start the process.  When paternity is legally established in the State of Florida, then the father will ‘legally’ be the father of the child.  In the final judgment of paternity he can establish time-sharing (visitation) and parental responsibility (decision making) rights over that child.  There will also be obligations such as child support and other expenses for the child, as well as will the mother.  Contact the law firm of All Family Law Group, P.A. for advice on what is involved in a paternity action.  Call 813-672-1900 or email us now to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.
