The father of my child will not admit paternity. What can I do in Florida?
In Florida, if a father will not admit the paternity, you can still file a paternity action. At that point, the father will have the choice of either admitting paternity or submitting to a DNA test. Depending on the results of the DNA test, that person could then be named the father of that child. At that point, once they’re established as the father, they will then have parental rights, responsibilities, and that would include child support, time-sharing, and the parental responsibilities associated with education, healthcare, and the various other aspects of upbringing your child.
