I live in Florida. Can I file a petition to establish

Customer Question
I live in Florida...

I live in Florida. Can I file a petition to establish paternity so my husband will have to adhere to a time sharing plan so I can work?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you thoroughly reviewed the contract?

Yes

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

A para legal with a Legal Aid service advised this petition instead of dissolution. There is a check mark for paternity established as a matter of law-I think this is a way for Florida residents to have separation and child custody/support arrangements without dissolution. Thoughts?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Thats it

Can you please clarify what you mean by time sharing plan? As in? And does the father agree to this as well, or not?

This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
