Florida Bill Releasing Child Support Obligation Because of DNA Test Goes to Governor for Approval

Men in Florida who have been paying child support, but can show they are not the biological father of a child through a DNA test, may be relieved of their support obligation if  Governor Jeb Bush signs a bill sent to him this week by the Florida Legislature.  Florida law currently requires that once child support is established, the obligation continues until the child's 18th birthday, even if the obligor is not the biological father.  Source.
