Local sheriff named in paternity suit

Florida parents may know that when they are expecting a child, there is more to preparation than buying clothes, blankets and toys. Legally, when a child is born, paternity must be established. If the parents are married, the husband is presumed to be the father. If parents are not married and the child is born out of wedlock, paternity must be established another way. 

Establishing paternity an important part of parenting

Preparing for the birth of a child can be one if the most exciting life experiences a person may have. As the due date grows closer, mothers and fathers might make arrangements to get everything ready ahead of time. Florida parents should be aware, however, that even after a child is born, there are still some important steps to take. One of these is establishing paternity.

Establishing paternity can be an important step for parents

In the state of Florida, if a married couple has a child, the husband is presumed to be the father. In cases where parents are unmarried, or if there is any question as to who is a child's biological father, establishing paternity can be a bit more tricky. Several methods can be used to legally determine who has fathered a child.
