Jacksonville Paternity Attorney

Florida Fathers Rights Lawyer

Paternity is a legal action that identifies a child's biological father. These actions can also determine custody and visitation rights for the noncustodial parent and child support.

At Arnold Law Firm in Jacksonville, our skilled family law attorneys work swiftly, thoroughly and responsively with our Florida parent clients to establish paternity, resolve child support disputes, and formulate child custody and visitation agreements that are in the best interests of their children.

Fathers usually file paternity actions to establish a legal parent-child relationship or to obtain visitation rights with the child. Most mothers file paternity actions to establish and obtain child support from the child's father.

Occasionally, fathers may wish to dispute the paternity of a child during a divorce negotiation or hearing and to seek to have their obligations modified.

Swift, Thorough, Responsive Paternity Representation

Our Florida law firm's experienced paternity lawyers can counsel you if you are a mother seeking a paternity action to identify the father of your child for purposes of determining child support obligations. We speak for fathers, too, whose paternity suits can help them gain child custody and visitation rights. We also accept cases from male clients whose paternity suit could prove they are not the father in a given case.

We are prepared to assist with DNA testing resources in order to prove or disprove paternity. Services like these, plus negotiating and drafting legal documents for our clients, are conducted in an atmosphere of utmost privacy and confidentiality.

If we can help with paternity actions you may be considering, or in the event you have been served with a paternity suit, please notify our Jacksonville law offices as soon as possible.
