The importance of establishing paternity

Having a child can be one of life's greatest joys. Yet, Floridians often find themselves dealing with legal issues that threaten their relationship with their children and their ability to adequately provide for them. Sadly, fathers' rights are often threatened through these processes. When a child is born out of wedlock, women are generally considered a child's custodial parent. Women are sometimes favored with regard to custody arrangements during the divorce process. However, regardless of one's gender, it is important to understand the basic legalities of paternity, as it can have a profound impact on child custody and child support matters throughout the course of a child's life.

This is why matters like property division, child support, and alimony must be aggressively dealt with when necessary. This week we'll take a quick look at the different types of alimony that can be awarded in Florida.
