Tampa FL Paternity Test Attorney

Last updated on August 23, 2023

Protecting Your Interests In Paternity Cases

Paternity cases come about when a child is born to unmarried parents and the identity of the biological father is not known, or the biological father is known but paternal rights have not been established. There are many legal issues that can come into play in paternity cases such as father’s rights, child support, parental responsibility, time-sharing, visitation, and custody. These cases can become quite complex and it is important to have an experienced paternity lawyer on your side.

In most cases, there are three types of clients in paternity disputes: a mother who is trying to identify the father for child support purposes, an alleged father who denies relation to the child and claims no responsibility, and a purported father seeking to establish his parental rights. At the Law Offices of Roberta Kohn, P.A., we have a solid track record of experience working with each of these clients and these types of cases. Our office is located in Wesley Chapel, Florida, and represents people throughout the Tampa Bay area, including Pasco County, Hillsborough County and Hernando County.

Strong, Thorough Representation

DNA or paternity testing can accurately determine the identity of the biological father. Parties may agree on a paternity test and the court will order a test in the event it determines that the test is in the best interest of the minor child. We will work to make sure that paternity testing is administered by a reliable laboratory and that no mistakes were made in the process of administering them. Based on the outcome of the test, we will aggressively pursue the best possible outcome for your situation.

Our founding attorney, Roberta Kohn, has been practicing law for over 30 years and has handled numerous paternity trials. Attorney Kohn has been serving clients throughout Hillsborough County, Pasco County, and the greater Tampa Bay area since 1996. In addition to parental rights and support issues, Ms. Kohn also provides complete adoption and name change services.
