A Florida court can indeed order testing of one spouse or the other, or the one parent or the other, at the conclusion of the case prior to exercising time sharing with the minor child. But it’s going to require a very strict showing of the need for this to happen. That’s an invasion into personal privacy that the court’s very reluctant to make, and it will only be if the court determines that that’s in the best interest of the minor child, that this occur prior to any sort of visitation, that they’ll actually put that order in place.
