DNA Test - Laramie, Wyoming

Laramie WY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Laramie, 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

Laramie, WY - DNA Testing

DNA Reunites Wyoming Woman with Her Parents After 50 Years

Marion was 23 years old and unmarried when she became pregnant and her parents forced her to give up her child. For 50 years, she thought about and prayed for the daughter she could not keep. The girl, who was named Shelly and adopted by a loving couple, began to search for her birth mother after her adoptive parents passed away.

After taking a DNA test, she was reunited with her half-sister, who eventually helped her make contact with her mother. The two met in person and traveled together several times to meet other family members. Eventually, Shelly also used DNA to locate her birth father, who did not know he had a daughter 50 years ago. She flew to Laramie to meet him at a University of Wyoming football game. When asked about the experience, Shelly said, "My life has changed more than words can explain."

Establishing Legal Paternity in Wyoming

According to Equal Justice Wyoming, an organization that provides legal services to low-income individuals in Laramie and throughout the state of Wyoming, there are three primary ways to establish a child's legal paternity in the state.

Presumed fatherhood - when a man is married to the mother at the time of the child's birth or within 300 days prior, he is presumed to be the child's legal father. This can also occur if a man lived with the child for the first two years of the child's life and openly behaved as if the child were his own.
Voluntary acknowledgment - both the mother and father sign and file an Affidavit of Paternity form with the state's Vital Statistics Services.
Paternity action - an interested party can petition the courts to establish legal paternity. In most cases, this requires a DNA test.

Can You Deny a Paternity Claim in Wyoming?

In some cases, a presumption of paternity may be incorrect, potentially leaving a man with the burden of financial responsibility for a child he did not father. Legal Aid of Wyoming, a federally funded group that provides legal assistance to low-income families in Laramie and throughout Wyoming, says that a presumed father can sign and file a Denial of Paternity form. However, the form is not valid unless another man signs a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity. This form is also not valid if the courts have already established him as the child's legal father or if the man has already acknowledged paternity in the past.
