Ardmore OK DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Ardmore, 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 Ardmore, OK

Establishing Paternity in Ardmore, OK

Since Oklahoma law presumes a husband to be a child's biological father, a newborn child will only have a legally declared mother and father if both parents are married at the time of birth. For recent Ardmore, OK parents who are not married at the time of their child's birth, the legal establishment of paternity will be necessary for the father to gain legal rights and responsibilities.

The easiest way to establish paternity is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity form at the hospital following the child's birth. During this time, a hospital employee will also explain what rights and responsibilities both parents will hold upon completion. If both parents are unable to complete this form at the hospital, one can be completed at a later date through a Carter County Department of Health Division of Vital Statistics Office.

Accurately Determining Paternity in Ardmore, OK

In certain situations, an Ardmore, OK mother will not have full confidence in who her child's biological father is. Although her presumption could be correct, it's crucial she accurately determine her child's paternity prior to making a decision to establish legal paternity in the state of Oklahoma. To do so, DNA paternity testing is a simple and quick process that can be done using the presumed father's DNA and child's DNA.

If a mother encounters any issues having the presumed father agree to DNA testing, it's highly recommended she seek the assistance of Carter County Family Court. Filing a paternity petition in court will allow a judge to mandate that the presumed father undergoes DNA testing. Once the testing process is complete and paternity is accurately determined, both parents can have paternity legally established in court.

Paternity Programs in Ardmore, OK

The state of Oklahoma operates the Centralized Paternity Registry (CPR) for men who believe they have fathered a child and would like to assume responsibility for their child in the event of an adoption. While this is not an establishment of legal paternity, by registering, the man will be notified if his presumed child is placed up for adoption. This will allow him to claim legal responsibility if he demonstrates that he is a fit candidate for guardianship. In some cases, the registry is also used to expedite the adoption processes for biological fathers who are unwilling and/or unable to assume responsibility over their child.
