Conclusive Presumption

A conclusive presumption is a presumption that is so strong, that no evidence will be allowed to rebut or overcome it. For example, in some states, when a couple is married and the wife gives birth, the presumption that the husband is the child's father is a conclusive presumption, regardless of how much evidence there is to the contrary. A conclusive presumption is also referred to as an absolute presumption or an irrebuttable presumption.
