Paternity cases involve the legal recognition of the father of a child. In Florida there are five ways to establish paternity:

  • Parents are married when child is born creating a presumption of paternity
  • Unmarried couple signs official Acknowledgement of Paternity form
  • Administrative order based on genetic tests
  • Court order
  • Birth parents get married after child’s birth and legitimize the paternity of the child through the FL Office of Vital Statistics

We at Rotella & Hernandez understand how sensitive and difficult paternity cases can be, and we also understand how important they are for both you and your children. With so much at stake, we hope you will allow us to advocate for the best interests of you and your children in all aspects of your paternity case. Please contact us with all of your family law needs.
