Protecting Your Children, Protecting Yourself: A Hollywood, FL Paternity Law Attorney You Can Count On!
If you’ve gone through a divorce recently, or been involved with a child support case, you are undoubtedly quite familiar with the terms ‘child support’ and ‘paternity’ and all that they entail. However, if you’re about to begin a court process, it’s important to note that establishing paternity is essential in order for the court to provide the legal guidance it was designed to hand down. But determining who’s the father sometimes proves to be a more difficult task than you might expect. In its most basic sense, ‘paternity,’ or more specifically the establishment of paternity, is the legal process implemented by the court to ascertain exactly who is the child’s biological father. Obviously to be a good father, it takes more than simple biology, but in the eyes of the court, in regard to establishing paternity—biology is what matters. The court must determine the biological father before it can lay down the law, or rather, enforce the law, regarding assigning rights and responsibilities as they pertain to the child or children. For example, paternity must be established in order to assign rights to custody or even visitation, and to enforce the legally-mandated duty to pay child support. As you can see, establishing paternity is pretty important. Anyone who claims to be a parent can ask the court to get involved in order to establish paternity. Additionally, the court may take up the issue on its own.
In every situation, hiring a paternity law attorney in Hollywood, FL is a wise choice. The laws regarding custody and paternity, child support and visitation, etc. can be rather complex and one mistake can cost you dearly. Imagine if you made an error handling the case on your own, and failed to convince the court that you deserve the custody you are seeking? A mistake could put your visitation rights in jeopardy.
Imagine being denied valuable time with your child as he or she is growing up. You cannot get back those years, and no amount of photos or social media can ever replace the experience of just being one on one with your child, sharing their life and watching them grow into an amazing young adult. They’re only young once, and each moment is precious. Don’t risk missing those valuable moments with your child; make no mistakes in your case.
