Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
No the person that signed the birth certificate here if not married to mother would have also signed an affidavit of paternity and that makes him the legal father.If he was married to mother again under Florida law he is the legal father.
You would have no liability here if the other person signed as the legal father on birth certificate and affidavit of paternity.By signing here the birth certificate they assumed the burden as legal father under the law.You would have no potential legal liability since you are not named the legal father.The other person is responsible legally for supporting the child.Since you are not listed here you are not the legal father again under Florida law and no liabilities on your part to the child or the mother.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
