Paternity Actions in Tallahassee

Under Florida law, paternity can be determined in the following acts or proceedings:

  • A paternity action instituted by the mother
  • A paternity suit initiated by a child
  • A paternity action commenced by any man with reason to believe that he is the father of a child
  • The father’s marriage to the mother
  • A foreign judgment establishing paternity
  • The father’s acknowledgment of paternity
