Paternity Lawyer in South Miami
Helping Fathers to Protect Their Rights
Paternity is the biological relationship between a father and his child. It becomes a legal issue when the father is not married to the child’s mother. If paternity is not declared at the time of the birth, the father or mother may seek to establish the paternity of the father so as to obtain or refute certain legal parental rights or obligations. The establishment of paternity is generally done through DNA testing and a court procedure. If you are an unmarried mother or father who needs help resolving a paternity issue, our South Miami paternity lawyer at Beatriz Zyne P.A. can provide knowledgeable, skilled, and attentive legal help.

Paternity can be the source of dispute between unmarried parents. An unmarried mother may wish to legally establish the father’s paternity for child support reasons while an unmarried father may contest paternity to be relieved of financially supporting someone else’s child.

- Child support
- Child custody
- Fathers’ rights
- Visitation rights
