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.

Establishing paternity in Blue Springs, MO

Unmarried parents in Blue Springs, Missouri, have three ways to establish paternity legally:

  1. They can sign an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity, often done at the hospital right after the child is born. If both parents complete the form, the alleged father becomes the legal father, and his name will be placed on the birth certificate.
  2. Parents who missed signing the Affidavit at the hospital can still establish paternity with the assistance of the Bureau of Vital Records.
  3. The last option is going to court and obtaining an order that will name the man as the child's legal father. This process often includes a DNA test to confirm paternity.

Establishing paternity is crucial even when the parents are on good terms. Without legal paternity, the father may lack legal rights or responsibilities towards the child in cases of unforeseen circumstances like the mother's passing. The child can also miss out on several benefits.

Blue Springs, Missouri: Benefits of establishing paternity

If parents do not establish paternity, the father has no rights, meaning he cannot ask the court to establish custody or visitation. At the same time, he has no legal obligation to pay child support, and if the mother considered adoption, he would not have to be informed about the child's placement or who will be caring for them. Additionally, the child may be missing out on multiple benefits, such as:
