A paternity action is a case reserved for unwed parents who are seeking to establish the father’s paternity legally, and seeking to establish time-sharing (custody) and child support. Many father’s in the state of Florida are not aware that if the Mother is denying them time-sharing, they can not legally exercise time-sharing unless they file for a Petition to Establish Paternity, Time-Sharing and Child Support. Until paternity is legally established, the Father does not have any legal rights to the child(ren). When making a determination on time-sharing, the Judge will also consider the same factors which they consider when determining time-sharing in divorce actions. These factors can be found in Florida Statutes Section 61.13. If you are being denied time-sharing, and you wish to establish your legal rights to your child, call us for a free initial consultation today.
