Plant City Paternity Lawyer
Unmarried parents have the same legal obligations to each other and their children as married parents, except that the actual paternity of the children will have to be established before a court will decide issues of child custody, visitation and support. Paternity may be established in a number of ways one of which is the filing of a petition to determine paternity in the circuit court much like the filing of a petition for dissolution of marriage. Like divorce cases, paternity cases can be contested or uncontested depending on whether the parents can agree on a parenting plan, time sharing and child support.
