What Is Paternity?
Paternity pertains to the legal acknowledgment of a father's relationship to a child. In Florida, anyone listed below can start the process to establish paternity:
- A woman who is pregnant or already has a child.
- Any man who believes he is the child's father.
- The child themselves.

For experienced guidance in your father's rights case, get in touch with a qualified paternity attorney in Winter Park at Richard A. Heller, P.A.. Contact us online or call (407) 501-4052 for a free consultation.
Without proven and validated paternity, the state does not assume or recognize a child's biological father outside of marriage. In order for the father to take on all of the rights and responsibilities of parenthood, it is important to legally verify his identity. Our family lawyers can help you take steps to legally prove you are the biological father. If your attempt to establish fatherhood is challenged, we can help you file a paternity lawsuit.
Protect Your Financial Security
In Florida, how marital property is divided follows the principle of equitable distribution. This doesn't always mean a strict 50/50 split; the aim is fairness. The court might assign more property or debts to one spouse to ensure that there is a balanced outcome.
Given the considerable leeway courts have in these decisions, having an experienced paternity attorney on your side is important. An attorney can skillfully negotiate a fair agreement or make an effective argument for you in court. Your financial well-being relies on smart choices, and we're here to guide you all the way.
Whether you are the mother or father, you know that your child's future will benefit from the involvement of both parents in his or her life. If you are the mother, you may have concerns about how you will be able to provide for your child financially. By establishing paternity, you ensure that the father will be involved in the financial responsibility of raising the child.
If you are the alleged father, you may have questions about your custody or visitation rights. You may be concerned that the child support payments requested are exorbitant or unfair. Or, you may need to challenge the results in the event of paternity fraud. An experienced lawyer from Richard A. Heller, P.A. can help you navigate the various complexities of your case and advocate for your parental rights, no matter how confusing the situation may seem.
