Florida law treats fathers differently, depending on whether their children were born inside or outside of marriage.
By filing a motion in a Florida family law court, you can be declared your child’s legal father. You will then have a permanently established legal relationship to the child, having legal standing to make important decisions in the child's life.
This is a wonderful opportunity for many fathers who are sure of their biological relationship with their child. However, if you have any doubt as to your relationship, it is critical that you talk with one of our Ocala paternity lawyers before a final judgment of paternity is entered in your case. This is because if a final judgment is entered and you later find that you are not the father, you may still be obligated to support the child. Getting a DNA test is highly recommended.
If the court is paying for the DNA test, there could be a delay of up to 8 weeks to receive the results needed. However, an IDTO paternity test has an average turnaround time of onle 2-3 days from the time the lab receives the samples. While this timeframe can vary, it is important to reach out to experienced consultation to walk you through the process.
