In Florida, if the parents of a minor child(ren) are not married, paternity must be established to pursue child support from the other parent and/or to establish a parent child relationship with the birth Father. Paternity is a complicated legal issue and affects both parents’ rights and responsibilities for a minor child in regard to child support, time-sharing, and parenting issues. If you are an unwed parent you should promptly seek counsel to understand your options and your rights.

Salisbury, P.A. have the experience to guide you through the process of establishing and challenging paternity, parental responsibility, time sharing, and parenting plans.
