Paternity Test in Florida

An erroneous order for genetic testing should be corrected through certiorari proceedings. "However, this court has held that an erroneous order for genetic testing 'cannot be corrected through a direct appeal, for the improper genetic testing requiring a blood draw would have already been completed' and thus any error in the order 'must be corrected through certiorari proceedings.' Price, 958 So. 2d at 1046; see also State, Dep't of Revenue ex rel. Sharifv. Brown, 980 So. 2d 590, 590 (Fla. 1st DCA 2008) (holding that a potentially erroneous order requiring a mother and child to submit to genetic testing for a determination of paternity 'threatens what we have held to be irreparable harm that cannot be cured on plenary appeal'); Dep't of Revenue v. Long, 937 So. 2d 1235, 1237 (Fla. 1st DCA 2006)" J.S. and C.L. v. SMM
