DNA Test - Cheyenne, Wyoming

Cheyenne WY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Cheyenne, Wyoming 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. Accurate results for DNA paternity testing with 99.99% confidence or greater take about a week.

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Cheyenne DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Cheyenne, WY - DNA Testing

Paternity Laws and Regulations in Cheyenne, WY

Under Wyoming Statute 35-1-411, if a Cheyenne mother is married at the time of her child's conception, or married between the child's conception and birth, then her husband's name will be entered on the child's birth certificate automatically. However, there may be instances where the husband is not the biological father, which will cause inaccuracies on the birth certificate.

In certain paternity cases, Cheyenne parents may need to file an action with the Laramie County Family Court to determine the correct paternity of a child and legally change the birth certificate details with the help of DNA testing. The husband and mother can then sign an affidavit after birth to verify that the husband is not the biological father and ensure the accuracy of the birth certificate.

Establishing Paternity in Cheyenne, WY

If a Cheyenne mother was not married at the time of her child's birth, then she and the child's biological father must take the proper steps to establish paternity in the state of Wyoming. If both parents agree on the child's paternity or if DNA testing has been used to identify the father, the simplest method of paternity establishment is to complete an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity.

An Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity must be completed in front of a Notary Public and properly filed with Vital Statistics Services. If either Cheyenne parent is unsure of their child's paternity, it's essential that they first seek DNA testing, both to determine the child's biological father and to avoid the potential legal complications that can come with the disestablishment of paternity.

Paternity Experts in Cheyenne, WY Say…

Highlighting the importance of DNA testing in Wyoming, if two Cheyenne parents choose to establish paternity without the use of genetic testing and later learn of mistaken paternity, it can be difficult to disestablish paternity in Laramie County Family Court.

According to Cheyenne family law attorney Shelly Flot, after 60 days, paternity establishments can no longer be legally reversed without court action, even if DNA testing demonstrates that the man named in the paternity form is not the real father. After this 60-day mark, a judge will likely require proof of material mistake, duress, or paternity fraud to reverse the agreement and any child support obligations.
