When must a biological father establish paternity in Florida?

When a child is born to married parents in Florida, the husband is legally presumed to be the child's father, with all the rights that entails should the couple divorce. However, this is not the case for unmarried parents. If a child's parents are not married at the time of the child's birth, then the child's biological father must establish paternity in order to obtain parental rights to the child. This becomes especially important when the child's unmarried parents are no longer in a relationship with one another, and the child's biological father wants to pursue his rights regarding parental responsibility and time-sharing.

Bringing clarity to the property division process

When a person in Orlando is going through the divorce process, there are many decisions that must be made. Some of the most important decisions divorcing couples will make involve what to do with their marital property. Who, if anyone, will keep the family home? What about the automobiles? How will they divide furniture, electronics, artwork and other household goods? Whatever decisions are made during the marital property division process, it is important to keep in mind that these decisions could affect a person's entire financial future. Therefore, there is no room for any mistakes to be made.

Florida man fights for rights to a child born to a married mother

A Florida man recently went to court in his pursuit of parental rights over his biological child. At issue is the fact that the child's biological mother is denying the child's biological father rights to his child, because another man has been legally recognized by the state as the child's legal father. The court needs to determine whether it is in the best interests of the child for the child to have a relationship with his biological father.
