Paternity Challenge Barred for Bad Timing

Father has DNA test disproving his paternity of child for whom court ordered him to pay support.

But he didn’t get it until 3 years after a Florida court entered a child support order.

For that reason, the Florida Supreme Court upheld the child support order against the Father.

The Court reportedly did not even mention the new paternity fraud law, under which the Father is considering pressing a new legal challenge.
