How and where can paternity be established in Florida?

Paternity can be established in Florida in a couple of different ways. If a child is born to a husband and wife during the marriage, the child is presumed to be the biological and legal child of the husband.

If a child is born out of wedlock, there are different ways that paternity can be established. One of those ways is by court order, establishing paternity. It can also be after a period of time, the parties if they signed an affidavit acknowledging paternity in the hospital, and that time period elapses, it's 60 days and it's uncontested, there is a establishment of paternity by the affirmative acknowledgement of paternity at the time that the affidavit of paternity is executed.
