Making paternity work without marriage

At the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, P.A., we deal with nearly all issues within the general category of Florida family law. You might associate this field with marriage and divorce, but unmarried couples, particularly parents, often need to formalize certain matters through the court system. 

What are the benefits of establishing paternity?

For couples who have children and decide to split up, various issues can arise, such as child support and strong emotions. For those who are not married, these matters can seem even more complex. However, all family members may find benefits in establishing paternity, which identifies a child's legal father. In Naples, and across all Florida cities, paternity establishment can have various benefits for fathers, mothers and children as well.

The perks of being a father: Bonding with your baby

As a father who has never been married to your child’s mother, you may not get the opportunities you need to bond with your baby during early developmental stages if you do not establish paternity in Florida. By taking this crucial step, you are clearing the way to form a healthy attachment with your infant that can make a difference for both of you from now on. At the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, P.A., the team has often provided assistance to fathers who want to be involved in their children’s lives.

You don't have to get married to protect your property

It is not unusual for two people to live together, be in a committed relationship and even start a family together without getting married. People in these situations may feel like marriage is unnecessary, or they may have negative attitudes toward marriage. Whatever the reason may be, deciding not to marry is a personal choice that many people are making these days.
