How Paternity Helps Mothers Get Child Support or Fight Visitation
If you were unmarried at the time of your child’s birth, then your child does not have a legal father. However, you and your child have the right to child support from the father. To receive the support you need and deserve, you will have to file a paternity action to establish the father’s parentage.
Our Miami-Dade paternity lawyers can help you:
- Confirm paternity through a DNA test
- Pursue an action against a father who refuses to pay sufficient child support
- Limit visitation rights from a father who you feel would be abusive or a negative influence in your child’s life
Our paternity lawyers in Miami-Dade can represent you in family court custody proceedings to argue on your behalf. We understand that bringing forward a paternity action can be intimidating – many are met with contention and denial from alleged fathers.
Our team is determined to make sure paternity is accurately established so that you and your child receive the support to which you are entitled.
