Isn’t Being Listed on the Birth Certificate Enough?

Many fathers assume that being included on a child’s birth certificate will protect their parental rights, but that’s not always the case. In Florida, if a child is born out of wedlock, the mother will automatically be considered the natural guardian unless the father takes affirmative steps to legally enforce his rights (for example, by filing a notice with the state’s Putative Father Registry and then filing an action for paternity).

The paternity lawyers at our firm have extensive experience handling these cases start to finish, and they can walk you through all of the necessary steps. And once a court has established your rights, we can also assist you with child support and time-sharing issues, as needed.
