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.

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.

Jenks, OK - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Jenks, OK

Under Oklahoma law, when two unmarried Jenks parents have a child, hospitals and birthing facilities are required to offer an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) form for completion. This form is used to legally establish paternity and declare exactly who a child's biological father is. Unmarried parents will need to sign and submit this form for the father's name to be placed on the child's birth certificate and for the father to hold parental rights.

Bear in mind, when completing these forms, it's crucial for Jenks parents to have full confidence in the child's paternity before moving forward. In the event there are multiple potential fathers for a child, you must seek quality DNA testing services to help accurately identify the biological father.

Paternity Laws and Regulations in Jenks, OK

Under Oklahoma Statute 7506-1.1, the Oklahoma Department of Human Services is required to maintain a Centralized Paternity Registry (CPR). The Oklahoma CPR is used to protect the parental rights of men who have allegedly fathered a child but have not properly established paternity.

In the event a Jenk's mother places her child up for adoption, the Oklahoma CPR is used by either an adoption attorney or a child-placing agency to notify the potential father of the adoption effort. If the father has registered with the CPR and receives notice of potential adoption, he can intervene by filing a paternity action in court and potentially gaining custody of the child if the courts allow.

Disestablishing Paternity in Jenks, OK

Under Oklahoma law, a paternity establishment can be rescinded within 60 calendar days of the final signature. Highlighting the importance of DNA paternity testing, if it is learned at a later date that the presumed father is actually not the biological father, Oklahoma law only offers a two-year period where establishments can be challenged in court.

Under Oklahoma Statute 10 O.S. § 7700-308, when a parent challenges an AOP within this timeframe, a court must first review the circumstances of the case to determine if the challenge is appropriate. In certain cases, a judge may request proof of fraud, duress, or material mistake to support a claim.
