Paternity

Raising a child can be difficult under the best of circumstances, but when you must go it alone without financial support from the other parent, it can be nearly impossible to make ends meet. If you are seeking child support payments from the father of your child, it may first be necessary to establish paternity to prove that a legal obligation exists.

Florida family law attorney James M. Burns will provide you with the legal assistance you need to pursue financial help to which your child is entitled. Mr. Burns has been helping family law clients just like you for more than 15 years. He will explain the entire process to you so that you can be sure you are making well-informed, intelligent decisions on behalf of your child.

Helping You Prove Paternity And Your Child's Right To Support

If you have been hesitant to pursue child support because the father insists that the child is not his, Pensacola paternity lawyer James M. Burns can help you to obtain a court order requiring the father to undergo a paternity test. Once paternity is established, Mr. Burns can help you pursue child support that will help to meet your child's needs and serve your child's best interests.

Florida family lawyer James M. Burns is committed to doing what is best for you and your child, and he has extensive experience handling paternity cases in both northwest Florida and southern Alabama.
