Oftentimes, single mothers may attempt to locate the legal father to claim child support while fathers may seek to establish parental rights. Generally, it is believed that establishing paternity benefits the well-being of a child. Establishing paternity is a legal action that identifies a child’s biological father. It can determine child custody, time-sharing, and child support; key areas in which heated disputes typically arise during divorce proceedings. With the help of a Broward County family law attorney, you may be able to establish paternity in a smooth and timely manner.
Fathers’ Rights Attorney
In Florida, a father is not deemed a child’s legal father if he is not married to the child’s mother at the time of the child’s birth. In addition, paternity has not been established if acknowledgment of paternity is not signed by both parents in the hospital at the time of the child’s birth. As a father, it is important to establish these rights as soon as possible after a child is born. It is the most sensible solution to establishing visitation and time-sharing should you wish to be a presence in the child’s life. In addition, fathers may seek to dispute paternity during divorce negotiation and have obligations modified. A Broward County paternity lawyer who focuses on father’s rights in Florida is a beneficial resource in any of these situations.
Keeping the Child’s Best Interests at Heart

There are several benefits to establishing paternity, particularly the following:
- Allowing the child access to information about the father’s medical history

- Providing health or life insurance from either parent
- Allowing either parent to provide financial child and medical support
- Allowing the child the ability to receive social security or veteran’s benefits and inheritance
