Tampa Paternity Lawyer

When a couple has a child born outside of wedlock, a paternity case is the usual means to establish each parent’s respective rights in regard to the child.  Within a paternity case, things such as custody or timesharing and child support are resolved.  This can be filed before or after the child has been born.  Typically a paternity test is required to determine whether or not the child belongs to the putative father.  But a child born to an intact marriage is presumed to be the legitimate child of that couple. If you have a paternity issue and have questions regarding how a Florida Family Law attorney may be able to help, please contact us.
