DNA Test - Ada, Oklahoma

Ada OK DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Ada, Oklahoma locations:

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
Avuncular DNA Test (aunt/uncle and niece/nephew)

Specimens we can test for DNA

The easiest and most reliable way to obtain a DNA sample for paternity testing is to swab the inner cheeks of the people being tested. These skin cells are known as buccal cells, and they rub off easily onto cotton swabs and remain in place for analysis by our laboratory. Other specimen samples, such as hair follicles, fingernails, and garments that might contain someone's DNA, can also be tested. An Alternative Specimen DNA Test is done by registering online and shipping the specimens to us.

DNA Paternity Testing in Ada, OK

Determining Paternity in Ada, OK

After a child's birth, it's recommended that both parents effectively establish legal paternity in the state of Oklahoma. But before moving forward with a paternity establishment, both must have full confidence in the child's paternity. If an Ada, OK mother or father has any doubt that the presumed paternity is not correct, they must seek DNA paternity testing to accurately determine the child's biological father.

During certain situations, a mother may struggle to have the presumed father agree to take a DNA test — without this DNA proof, you will be unable to legally establish paternity in court. The best route for such situations is to file a paternity petition through Pontotoc County Child Support Services. This will allow the state to issue a summons and have the presumed father undergo paternity testing. Once the child's biological father is confirmed, then paternity can be established.

Establishing Paternity in Ada, OK

If you have correctly determined your child's paternity, a further step to establish the legal relationship between an Ada child and his or her father is by establishing legal paternity. By establishing paternity in Oklahoma, you are legally declaring your child's biological father and providing that man with rights and responsibilities over that child. Likewise, by legally establishing paternity, the father's information can be placed on the child's birth certificate.

To legally establish paternity, both parents will need to complete an Acknowledgment of Paternity. Once this form is filed with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, either parent will have the ability to seek a custodial/visitation agreement as well as monthly child support services.

Experts in Ada, Oklahoma Say…

For an Ada father to gain legal rights over his child, both parents will need to legally establish paternity in the state of Oklahoma. Legally establishing paternity will benefit both the father, who gains rights and responsibilities, as well as the child. According to Ada Family Law Attorney James Neal, by legally establishing paternity, the child can inherit in the event of the father's death, be placed under the father's health and life insurance policy, and can receive social security benefits in the event the father becomes disabled or passes away.
