Florida Paternity Attorney
The assists both mothers and fathers in the establishment of paternity rights for their children. We also have experience litigating cases in which adjudication of paternity is an issue. Among the great social changes of the past half-century is greater participation of fathers in the day-to-day care of their children. No longer can it be assumed that mothers carry the responsibility alone, and many, many fathers fully participate in the joys and burdens of child-rearing. As a result of this changing role, a greater interest in fathers’ rights has emerged. Despite or because of the marked increases in the number of divorces and single parents in Florida, more and more fathers desire to actively participate in their children’s formative years.
