Florida Paternity Determinations

A lawsuit to determine the legal paternity of a child is a family law-related legal matter. Either the biological mother or the biological father can initiate a lawsuit to establish paternity in Florida. With a determination of paternity comes the associated calculation of the child support obligation and, on a case-by-case basis, time-sharing with the child.
