What would clear and convincing evidence be to establish paternity?

Asked 11 months ago - Riverside, MO

I have a one year old and have not established paternity. He was born during a marriage and has a presumed legal father that takes care of him. I've researched and it states I need clear and convincing evidence to prove that I am the biological father in order to rebut the legal presumption but I am unsure what that would consist of.
