Fort Myers Paternity Lawyer

Establish Paternity & Assert Your Rights

There is an increased understanding of the important role that fathers play in the lives of their children. Even if you are not married to the mother of your children, you deserve to have an active role in their lives through child custody and visitation. The only way to legally assert these rights is to establish paternity through the court. Paternity grants rights and responsibilities to the legal father as determined through marriage, adoption, or biology.

An experienced Fort Myers paternity attorney at Daniels Law, P.A. advocates for fathers seeking to stand up for their rights. Attorney Daniels personalizes every case to the needs of the client, providing both compassionate guidance and aggressive litigation. She understands that the right representation makes a difference during this stressful time.

How to Establish Paternity in Florida

When a mother gives birth in the state of Florida, the man she is married to is presumed as the father of the child. If the mother is unmarried, paternity must be established voluntarily through another means.

Ways to establish paternity:

  • Marriage to the mother before the birth of the child
  • Signed Acknowledgement of Paternity
  • Court order
  • Administrative order through DNA testing
  • Legitimization through marriage after the birth of the child, if you are the biological father

    A Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity that is signed by both the mother and the father is legally binding only to determine paternity; it does not ensure the father has full rights regarding the child. Paternity can also be established by the court. Considering the complications that can arise during a paternity case, you need a skilled Fort Myers family lawyer to advocate on your behalf.
