Does an umarried mother have child support rights in Florida?

I think in all states unmarried mothers are elgible for child support. However they will want to establish the legal father of the child. This is called "paternity establishment."

Paternity can be established in the following ways:

• If a child is born to an unmarried mother, she and the man claimed to be the father can sign an "Affidavit of Parentage" to legally establish the father's rights and obligations.

• The mother and the man claimed to be the father can ask a court to determine the legal father of the child. Genetic testing may be necessary to determine the biological father of a child.
