Have you recently learned you are not the father of a child you thought
was yours? You're not alone. Countless men throughout Florida and
around the country have taken part in raising a child, only to discover
later in life that the child is not biologically theirs. In these types
of situations, there are ways in which a man can
. Once paternity has been dissolved, a man will no longer be required to pay
child support and will have no further legal or financial obligations to the child.
If you are interested in disestablishing paternity, it is important to
obtain representation from an experienced paternity lawyer. Any paternity
matter will be an extensive process, as the courts want to ensure the
child's best interest is protected at all times. Disestablishing paternity
often involves taking a court-ordered DNA test, and the court may want
to evaluate when the child was conceived and what your relationship to
the mother was at the time. Although dissolving paternity may seem like
an open-and-shut matter, things can get more complicated than you realize.
For example, last week we posted a blog about Christopher Martin, who
was trying to disestablish paternity after learning he wasn't the
father of a little boy. Even after a DNA test proved he wasn't the
biological father, the court would not dissolve his paternity because
he was $30,000 behind on his child support payments.
