Paternity Actions

Our experienced family court trial attorneys handle paternity suits filed by both mothers and fathers with a child born outside of a marriage.  Mothers bringing a paternity action are usually seeking child support payments from the father.  Paternity suits brought by fathers most often seek to establish time-sharing and parenting rights, or wish to be legally named as the child’s father.  Even if the father is on the birth certificate, he does not gain legal rights as the father until a family court judge enters a judgment of paternity.

There’s no such thing as a “simple” paternity action.  Issues of domestic violence, finances, or even DNA testing often need to be litigated, which creates the need for a parent to hire an experienced trial attorney.  For assistance with a paternity case, contact Shemtov Hillstrom at (954) 329-2222 to schedule a free consultation in our Fort Lauderdale office.
