The Proposed Administrative Paternity and Support Order tells the alleged father that the Department intends to issue an administrative order establishing paternity and a support obligation for the child or children listed in the Proposed Administrative Paternity and Support Order. 8635When an agreed to and signed parenting time plan is provided by the parents, it is enclosed with Proposed Order. If a signed parenting time plan is not enclosed, the Department will provide a blank Title IV-D Standard Parenting Time Plan, CS-OA250, with form CS-OX20 8680except as provided by paragraph (6)(a)8686.

    9134(9135f9136) 9137The Proposed Order also informs the alleged father of his rights to contest the Proposed Administrative Paternity and Support Order. The alleged father’s rights to contest the Proposed Administrative Paternity and Support Order, CS-OA20, CS-OX20, or the Proposed Order for Paternity, CS-OP30, discussed in subsection (12), are:

    91841. Informal Review. The alleged father has the right to an informal review, and may contact the Department within 10 days after the mailing date of the proposed order to ask for an informal review. The alleged father may ask for an informal review either orally or in writing. If the informal review results in a change to the proposed order or if an error is detected, the Department will issue either an Amended Proposed Order of Paternity, CS-OP30, or an Amended Proposed Administrative Paternity and Support Order, CS-OA20. The Department may discontinue the support proceeding if the alleged father provides proof that an obligation should not be established. Types of circumstances where the Department would not proceed to render a support obligation includes: all children reside with the alleged father, or the alleged father, mother, and children reside together. If at the conclusion of the informal review the Department intends to render a final order, it will tell the alleged father using the Notice of Conclusion of Informal Discussion Administrative Paternity and Support Proceeding form, CS-OA32.

    9972(9973g) 9974The genetic test results will be admitted as evidence and made part of the hearing record. If the statistical probability equals or exceeds a 99% probability that the alleged father is the biological father, there is a presumption of paternity. The presumption can be rebutted only by clear and convincing evidence to the contrary.

    10028(h) If the Department determines that an administrative hearing is appropriate, it may refer the proceeding to the Division of Administrative Hearings without issuing a Proposed Administrative Paternity and Support Order. At the hearing, the administrative law judge may issue a final order that addresses paternity, or paternity and support. The administrative law judge will also determine any applicable retroactive support and include it as a sum certain in the final order. The retroactive support will be calculated for the 24 months prior to the date of the service of process for the Notice of Proceeding to Establish Paternity. If the administrative law judge issues an order, the Department will render it.

    11103(d) Any Final Order of Paternity or Final Administrative Paternity and Support Order rendered as allowed by this rule has the same effect as a judgment entered by the circuit court pursuant to chapter 742, F.S.

    11139(e) The Department will notify the Department of Health’s Bureau of Vital Statistics when paternity is established for a child under this rule. The Department will ask the Bureau of Vital Statistics to amend the child’s birth certificate to include the name of the legal father. In cases where the child was born in a state or U.S. Territory other than Florida, the Department will send a copy of the Final Order of Paternity or Final Administrative Paternity and Support Order to the birth registrar where the child was born.
