Establishing Your Rights

Establishing paternity is a very important step for fathers and mothers alike. Under Florida law, if the parents are not married when the child is born, the father has no formal legal rights. In addition, an unmarried mother may not receive child support until paternity is formally established. In either of these situations, our attorneys can help you understand your rights and responsibilities, while forming a sound plan of action to achieve your goals.

Helping Mothers And Fathers In Paternity Actions

Based in Tavares, Florida, the Law Office of Robyn A. Hudson, P.A. represents mothers and fathers in all types of paternity situations. In many cases we handle, the mother and father lived together when the child was born, but now they live apart. In other cases, the parents never lived together. Whatever your case involves, we will provide candid guidance and knowledgeable counsel.

Paternity proceedings can involve a number of different issues. If the parties agree that the man is the biological father of the child, paternity can often be established without genetic testing. If the parties do not agree as to biological paternity, or if they desire DNA testing to be certain, genetic testing may be required. In addition to biological paternity, other issues such as whether a man’s name appears on the child’s birth certificate or whether the mother was married to someone other than the father at the time of the child’s conception or birth will impact your case. Whatever your circumstances, our office can provide advice regarding the establishment of paternity.

Finding Solutions That Work For You And Your Family

In addition to determining parentage, paternity cases address other important issues for mothers, fathers, and their children. These issues include timesharing with the child, child support, and other matters such as where the child will attend school, who will provide health insurance for the child, how the parents will split medical and other costs for the child, and how the parents will make decisions regarding the child’s wellbeing and care. Because of the importance of these issues, and how they will impact your life and the life of your child for years to come, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side. At the Law Office of Robyn A. Hudson, P.A., we have extensive experience with these kinds of matters, and we can provide you with quality representation in your paternity case.
