Petitioning for a child custody order in Florida

If you are a parent going through divorce or separation in Florida, then you don't necessarily have to go to court in order to agree on a workable parenting plan with your co-parent. Many divorcing spouses or former unmarried partners can avoid the cost of court by reaching an out-of-court agreement.

How to establish paternity in Florida

Whether you're a mother in need of court-ordered child support payments, or you're a father trying to assert your right to spend time with your child, legally establishing paternity can be extremely important in child custody proceedings.

How is paternity established in Florida?

The question of paternity comes up in many family law cases. In Florida, when the parents of a child are married, generally nothing needs to be done to prove paternity. However, when the parents are not married, paternity can be established in three ways: a paternity acknowledgment form signed by both parents, an administrative paternity order, or a judicial paternity order.
