Establishing Paternity & Parental Rights

If a child has been born to unmarried parents, it is essential that you establish paternity. This is not only important for the father, but it is important for the mother and the child as well. Our Clearwater family law attorneys at Tinny, Meyer & Piccarreto, P.A. can help you learn the most effective ways to establish paternity. We can also ensure you are aware of your rights and responsibilities once paternity has been established. Our firm represents both fathers and mothers wishing to establish paternity for a variety of reasons.

How Is Paternity Determined in Clearwater?

In the past before DNA and blood tests, paternity was difficult to prove and was based on who could argue more persuasively in court. Fortunately, modern testing has advanced greatly and paternity can be determined with 100% accuracy. If you or the other parent of your child wishes to establish paternity, you will simply need to undergo testing at a reputable clinic.

  • A few different reasons why paternity needs to be established include:
  • To enforce child support payments
  • To request child custody or visitation rights
  • To make decisions in your child's upbringing
  • To restrict child custody or visitation rights
