Paternity Litigation

At Ian F. Mann, PA, in Fort Myers, Florida, we regularly represent clients seeking to file a lawsuit proving paternity of a child. In some cases, our clients include the mother seeking child support from the father. In other cases, we represent the father seeking to obtain parenting rights or custody of a child.

Whether you are the mother in need of proving paternity through a court-mandated paternity DNA test to enforce child support obligations, or you are the father interested in being involved in your child's life, turn to us for help. Call Fort Myers paternity lawyer Ian Mann at 239-935-5935 or toll free 866-416-1488 to schedule a free initial consultation about our services and what to expect out of the legal process.

Are You Paying Child Support But Don't Get Access To Your Child?

Custody does not mean ownership. If you are the legal parent of a child in Florida and are not being granted access for meaningful parenting time, you have the right to petition the court for a parenting plan. We will aggressively represent your rights throughout the process.

Are You Unable To Meet Your Child Support Obligation?

If you are the noncustodial parent ordered to pay child support but lack the financial means to meet your obligations, let us help. Your visitation rights do not depend upon you staying current with your support. We can help you negotiate a modified court order that fulfills your obligations and prevents you from facing contempt charges.

Custody And Termination Of Paternal Rights

We also represent parents seeking to reverse or modify a court custody order or terminate the parental rights (TPR) of a noninvolved parent. Unless you obtain a TPR judgment against the noncustodial parent, your child will be ineligible for adoption in the event of a subsequent marriage or domestic relationship.
