Paternity and Child Custody Lawyer in Miami Florida

Child custody varies from state to state since most jurisdictions dealing with family law are managed through state law. The outcome of the case also depends on the severity of the situation and the judge assigned.

Miami Florida

In Florida, joint custody is preferred so that the child keeps a stable relationship with both parents. Courts will contemplate the wishes of the child in custody matters. Florida court requires parents to take mandatory parenting classes. Since the court makes a decision based on the best interest of the child, the court looks into the requirements of the child, not the parents. Florida law establishes child custody in two ways, legal or physical custody. Legal custody means that a parent has the right to make life decisions for the child. Physical custody determines where the child resides. Sometimes if the child desires so, the parents’ custody will rotate so that the child can have equal time with each parent.


The aspects of paternity are established according to your state of residence. Someone who is considered the legal father most of the time this person is granted paternity rights. In the state of Florida, the father that is given legal and biological is also granted paternity. The law assumes that if the mother is married at the time of the child’s birth, the husband is considered the father. However, if the mother is not married, paternity needs to be established through court or voluntarily.
