    The Florida Paternity Test Process

    Either party can request a Florida Paternity Test. DNA will be used to determine paternity. After the test, court decisions will be based on the findings.

    • A DNA sample can be given voluntarily or the court can force someone to offer a sample
    • The male must take a DNA test if court ordered. Typically this is a blood test or cheek swab
    • Within 5 days, the Florida Paternity Test results will be available

    If paternity is established, the court will argue that both parents should be in the child’s life. Having an experienced Longwood paternity attorney to facilitate the process and the next steps can lead to a better outcome for you and your child.
