Parents in Florida may benefit from learning more about father's rights and the issues involved with challenging paternity. If the mother is married at the time of childbirth, her husband is presumed to be the father unless his paternity is challenged. However, people who are interested in challenging paternity may be required to take similar action as those attempting to establish paternity.
After a complaint is filed with the court, a DNA test may be ordered to determine who the actual father is. When the court names the father, the parents may be required to meet and discuss the terms of the parenting plan, which might include custody rights and child support. Several grounds may be cited when challenging a previous paternity test, however.
