Helpful Florida Family Law Information


When parents of the children are not married to each other, a Paternity action will decide all matters regarding the children. You may request that the other parent take a paternity test, just to make sure about paternity.

Once paternity is established, the Court will determine a Parenting Plan (just like in a Divorce case) for decision making, where the children reside for school purposes and for spending time with the children.

The Relocation Statute also applies to paternity cases, so a parent may not move more than 50 miles with the child unless the other parent agrees or the Court allows the move.
