My question involves paternity law for the State of: FLorida
My ex husband has custody of my 7 year old son. During our divorce, I asked for a paternity test because I was not positive he was the biological father. During mediation, it was negotiated that he did not have to have a paternity test.
I recently became aware that he had a paternity test performed anyway, prior to our mediation and the results were sent to his lawyer who told my ex husband he was NOT the biological father but to keep quiet about the results. My ex husband told a few people, who told a few people, and eventually got back to me.
I want custody of my son and I want his parenting rights revoked. I know who the biological father is. My ex husband was abusive during our relationship also and I was in a domestic abuse pilot program for a while during separation. I agreed to him having custody while I got myself back on my feet and agreed to visitation.
Can I sue him and his lawyer for withholding information or fraud or anything like that? How should I proceed in getting my son back?
Do I need to petition for another paternity test? We were divorced just one year ago.
