The Paskačić (Serbian Cyrillic: Паскачић, pl. Паскачићи) was a Serbian noble house that served the Serbian Empire, of Dušan the Mighty (r. 1331-1355) and Uroš the Weak (r. 1355-1371), then the Mrnjavčević' Lordship of Prilep (1371–1395) during the Fall of the Serbian Empire. The eponymous founder was kefalija Paskač, and the family base was in Slavište (modern Macedonia) and they held the modern border region between Serbia and the latter. Paskač had a son, Vlatko Paskačić, (hence, the family is also known as Vlatković) who received the title of sevastokrator in 1365, when Vukašin Mrnjavčević was declared co-ruler as King of Serbs and Greeks.
