How does a paternity test work?

The state of Florida allows for paternity testing to determine who the biological parents of a child are. In a DNA test, a stretch of DNA is taken from the mother, the child and anyone who may be the father of the child. Such a test is generally 99.9 percent accurate as the child's DNA must be a combination of the mother and the father's DNA.

Florida child custody highlights

Upon the dissolution of a Florida marriage between parents of a dependent child, issues concerning the child's upbringing and support must be resolved. If possible, the parents reach their own agreements and the court approves them. In some cases, though, it is the court that is responsible for determining custody and visitation issues as well as the amount of child support. In all cases, the court bases its decisions in keeping with the best interests of the children and the circumstances of the family.

What happens if my ex spouse does not pay child support?

Single parents in Florida may rely on child support from a former spouse and can take action when he or she has stopped paying. A parent should first contact the local child support office, and a hearing can be filed if a parent does not start paying. A party breaks a court order when able to pay but choosing not to, and a hearing officer can send a recommended punishment to a judge when deciding that one party willingly failed to pay child support.
