Paternity Lawyers – Tampa Bay, FL

You don’t need an attorney to establish paternity in Tampa Bay Florida, but navigating the family courts alone in a paternity case may not be in your best interest. There are several issues that must be resolved when you’re establishing paternity in Florida. Nilo J Sanchez & Associates has the experience you can trust when you need aggressive, sound legal representation in a paternity matter.

Why Florida Dads Should Establish Paternity

If you are a father who has not yet established legal paternity in Florida you have no legal rights to make decisions for your child. In order to obtain those rights, you must seek an order from the courts that establishes paternity. This also serves to establish parental responsibility, child custody, child support if applicable and ( timesharing ) with your child. If you do not currently have legal paternity established and you amicably timeshare, in the case of an emergency your entitlement to care for your child is not guaranteed until legal paternity is established. Additionally, should the mother decide to relocate with your minor child, preventing her from doing so could prove very difficult to do.

Paternity & Enforcing Timesharing Orders & Parenting Plans 

If you are a father who has established paternity and you have a court ordered parenting plan, and you are being denied the right to share that time with your child, Attorney Sanchez can file a motion for enforcement and contempt of timesharing should you be denied.

Florida Child Support & Established Paternity

In Florida, both parents must provide financial support to their children. Attorney Nilo J Sanchez will provide you with the legal counsel you need to determine what your child support obligation may be. Because each case is unique, it’s highly recommended that you speak with a Tampa Paternity Lawyer.  The percentage of timesharing and overnight stays can reduce your financial obligation, but there are several other factors that must be considered when calculating child support.  It is highly recommended to consult with a Tampa Father’s rights attorney before making any abrupt decisions.

Mother’s Establishing Paternity, Child Support, Timesharing

Unmarried mothers frequently do not need financial support from the biological father of their child but they may wish to establish legal paternity, timesharing and other related relief. If you amicably timeshare with the father of your child, but you have not yet established legal paternity, it is important to note that should something happen to you, your child ‘s father will not automatically be considered next of kin to care for your child. Once paternity has been established, parents can work with an experienced paternity attorney to negotiate the terms of their agreement.  If you are seeking relief for child support and need to consult with us, please schedule a consultation or message us below.
