Orlando Paternity Lawyer

Alcalde Legal is here to help parents establish their legal rights. Establishing paternity in the state of Florida is usually done for the following reasons:


  • A father seeks legal rights to his child

  • A mother seeks support for her child from the father


Whatever the reason, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to get the job done and would be honored to assist you in your paternity needs.

The Paternity Process in Florida

A paternity ruling grants a unmarried biological father legal rights to their child(ren), and may be followed by court rulings pertaining to child support, custody, and guardianship.


The litigation in these cases usually revolves around creating a parenting plan, allocating parental responsibilities for the parents, and calculating child support obligations.


Once fatherhood is established, a family court will create a parenting plan featuring a time sharing schedule for the parents and the child(ren).


Similar to divorce, parental responsibility in a paternity case can result in:


  • Shared parental responsibility (most common)

  • Shared parental responsibility with one parent granted ultimate decision making authority

  • Sole parental responsibility


For more information including parenting plans, parental responsibilities, and what the court looks for when determining the best interests of the child, read up on our Child Custody service.
