Paternity Attorneys St. Pete, FL

W hether you are a mother seeking support for your child or a father needing to establish your parental rights, the paternity lawyers at Barnett Woolums, P.A. are here to help you.  Paternity, as defined by law, is the legal recognition of a man’s relationship as a parent, between himself and the child.  When a child is born out of wedlock that child does not automatically have a legal father without a paternity action to ascertain the identity of the father. Under Florida Law, an unwed mother has a superior right to her minor child until a court decides otherwise. A paternity action can be brought by either the mother or the father, and at Barnett Woolums, P.A. we are happy to advocate for either parent.

Dealing with paternity, a highly emotional and often contentious issue, requires the help of a family law attorney who has knowledge of the complex paternity laws, and the patience and commitment to protecting your rights.  Our firm is dedicated to providing the kind of representation needed to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.

If you have a paternity matter that you believe requires legal advice or representation call the paternity lawyers at Barnett Woolums, P.A. today at (727) 525-0200 to setup a consultation where we can discuss your situation in detail.
