    Establishing Paternity: Why It Matters

    Establishing paternity is an important legal process that can have significant implications for both parents and children. Whether you are a mother seeking child support or a father wanting to establish your parental rights, our experienced Jacksonville paternity lawyers can guide you through the process and advocate for your best interests.

    Here are some reasons why establishing paternity matters:

    1. Legal rights and responsibilities: Establishing paternity ensures that both parents have legal rights and responsibilities towards the child. This includes custody, visitation, and financial support.
    2. Child support: If you are the custodial parent, establishing paternity can help you secure child support to meet your child's needs.
    3. Access to benefits: A child with a legally recognized father may be entitled to various benefits, such as health insurance, inheritance rights, and government assistance.
    4. Emotional well-being: Knowing and having a relationship with both parents can contribute to a child's emotional well-being and sense of identity.
    5. Medical history: Establishing paternity allows the child to have access to important medical information from both parents, which can be crucial for healthcare decisions and genetic testing.

    At Zisser Family Law, we understand the complexities of paternity cases and the importance of protecting your rights and the best interests of your child. Contact our Neptune Beach office today to schedule a consultation with our experienced paternity lawyers.

    What Can a Paternity Attorney Do in Your Case? 

    If you need help establishing paternity, our Jacksonville paternity attorneys will use our resources to gather evidence. 

    Our team will also create a strategy to accurately address paternity and related issues, such as: 

    •  Child Custody Guidelines
    • Child Support Conditions
    • Visitation Rights

    If you’re establishing paternity after the death of the presumed father, we can help you determine how to move forward by checking inheritance records, examining a father’s medical records, and checking eligibility for social security death benefits. Our Jacksonville paternity lawyers also provide assistance with paternity testing so you can obtain financial support for your child. 

    Our years of experience, resources, and legal system knowledge will help you fight for fairness and your child’s best interest. Paternity is the legal process of establishing fatherhood. When a couple is married, paternity is typically automatically established without the need for legal intervention. When a child’s parents are unmarried, paternity becomes a legal process that must be completed before parental rights, support awards, or visitation can be ordered.
