Why You Need a Paternity Lawyer
Today, it’s become more and more common to have children out of wedlock. This presents a legal issue for new parents in Florida. That’s because, by Florida law, a baby born to an unmarried woman has no legal father if proper documents are not signed at the time of birth. Both parents must sign an acknowledgment of paternity in the hospital at the time of the baby’s birth to establish legal paternity. If you did not sign one of these acknowledgments, we encourage you to act quickly to establish paternity. We’ll walk you through the entire process, helping you exercise your rights as a father or get financial support if you are a single mother.
