Disproving Paternity

One of the hardest family law concerns to properly resolve in Florida is to disprove paternity. If you are named as the father on the birth certificate, you are presumed to be the father. However, you can bring an action to protect your own rights if you are not the biological father. As we guide you through this process, you can be sure we will fight for you when a cooperative approach does not work.
