You need to file a Petition to Disestablish Paternity and request DNA testing. A home DNA test will not be enough for the court. I would consult with and retain an experienced family law attorney in the Tampa area. I wish you the best of luck.
If you find my answer to be helpful or the best answer, please make sure to mark your choice. **COMMUNICATION ON THIS SITE DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP.**
I agree with the previous answer- you should speak with an attorney about the details of your circumstances, as they will greatly affect the likelihood of whether you would be able to disestablish paternity. I also agree that a home test will not suffice in disproving that she isn't your biological child.
Legal disclaimer: this response is not intended to create any attorney-client relationship and is based on the limited facts given and should not be relied on as legal advice. It is recommended that you consult with an attorney before taking any action based on the foregoing statements.
I agree with both attorneys who previously answered but I also think more information from you is needed. Like are you ordered to pay child support? If so, how did that happen? Why wasn't a DNA test done? Contact an attorney today for a consultation. Good luck.
