Florida DNA Test is Free

Florida plans to provide DNA testing for free to help collect child support and establish paternity. This article, called Unpaid Child Support Sought, appears in this morning’s Lakeland Ledger.

Separately, Prince Edward Island in Canada has begun revoking the driver’s licenses of deadbeat parents.

As we’ve been saying for a couple of years on Divorceinfo.com, it’s going to get less and less pleasant to be a deadbeat parent.

    Been married for six years now and we are expecting a baby soon, I would like to preform a dna test for paternity reasons. If the child is not mine, what are my options in the state of Florida.

    In most states, and I suspect in FL too, if you are married to the mother of a child you believe is not yours, you have the option to embrace that child as your own or to disavow your paternity. The way to disavow your paternity is to file for divorce and to state that the child was born during the marriage but not of the marriage.
