Child Custody & Mother's Rights in Florida
Circumstances where a mother may need to preserve parental rights can include:
- Cases in which a child is born to unmarried parents;
- Situations involving the state taking your children from you for any reason.
In the case of an unmarried mother, when she gives birth to her child she
may be designated as the sole parent. Marital status aside, you have rights
regarding the support of your child. If the mother wishes to seek
child support from the biological father, she may file a paternity action with the state.
A court ordered DNA test may be taken to confirm the biological father.
It is important to understand that once proving that a person is the father
of her child, that person will now have
father's rights and can seek
visitation and other involvement in the child's life, as will be his right once
paternity is established and acknowledged.
The court makes decisions based on what is considered to be in the child's
best interests. Regardless of the situation you are facing as a mother,
your rights may need to be protected, and our Winter Park
family law attorney will
aggressively protect those rights if threatened in any way.
