Legal Answers
Q. Im from Florida and I only signed an acknowledgment of paternity with my ex.
A: No, you both equal rights to be a parent to the minor child. You should file for Custody, Visitation and Access to the minor child. Also, be very clear to the mother in your communication that you do not consent to her denying you access to the child.
