Wrong father on child's birth certificate. How do I correct this?

1 Answers. Asked on Nov 26th, 2012 on Family Law - Florida
More details to this question:
The listed father's named on child's birth certificate is not the real father. I need to correct this, if possible. I am not trying to get child support, only wish to place the name of the real father on the birth certificate. The child was born in Florida but now lives in Georgia. How can I get this corrected without going back to Florida? The father listed on the birth certificate lives in Europe, but was told that he was not the real father. A none court order DNA test was done with the father not listed on the birth certificate, and it showed that he was the father.
