FAQ's on Florida Paternity Laws
While the primary purpose of the proceeding tends to require the father to provide support for his child, the issue of time-sharing and parental responsibility may also be addressed. Many people do not understand that you have to affirmatively move forward in the court system in order to assert rights with your child if you are a father in Florida.
The rights do NOT automatically attach, as many people would believe. If you are married to your wife, then yes, you have equal rights to your child. BUT, and this is a BIG BUT, if you are not married, you…do…not…have…rights…to…your..own…child…as…an… nmarried….father.
As a mother, you have more rights than an unmarried father. But as the father, without a time-sharing/custody order, your rights are…well, you can pay support, and that’s about it.
