Florida family law states that if a child’s parents were not married while their child was conceived or born, the father has no child custody or visitation rights until paternity has been established; he must show that he is the father of the child. This can be a difficult process for many reasons: antagonism between former romantic partners, confusing legal paperwork, conflicts related to Parental relocation, Child support, Custody and parenting plans and other complexities.
