Paternity issues: Protecting the rights of unwed Florida fathers

Unmarried fathers often feel like outsiders when it comes to the lives of their children. Many of them feel a need to tread carefully with the mother of their children because they fear being denied access. We want to tell all unwed fathers in Florida that you do have paternity rights and that it is possible to protect your fathers' rights with patience and effort on your part.

Many people automatically assume that an unmarried dad is a deadbeat dad, but this is not always the case. Our lawyers feel that most dads want to parent their kids and be an active presence in their lives. As such, we know that these fathers need help addressing the paternity struggles that often go hand-in-hand with being an important part of a child's life.

Just a few of these struggles often include:

  • Visitation and custody rights
  • Sharing medical and educational decisions
  • Child support issues
  • Having a say in religious matters

If you are an unwed father, a great first step in protecting your paternity rights is to seek counsel with an established family law firm. This can open the door to showing Florida courts that you want to help raise and support your children. Working with a lawyer also empowers unmarried dads to create a solid plan of action to acquiring regularly scheduled parenting time.

Remember, courts across America now understand that children benefit from having a father in their lives to love them and support them in all ways. Take some time to consult with an attorney if you want more time with your kids. You can also learn more about family law by exploring our firm's website.
