DNA Test – Norman, Oklahoma

Norman OK DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Norman, Oklahoma clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

perm_identity
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
perm_identity
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
perm_identity
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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Norman DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Norman, OK

In Norman, OK, if a child is born to two married parents, the man is automatically presumed to be the father and paternity does not need to be proven. This is also true if the man and woman were married within 300 days of the child’s birth.

If a man is not married to the mother of the child, he needs to establish paternity to have any kind of visitation or child custody rights. In Norman, OK, this can be done by filing an Acknowledgement of Paternity form, which needs to be signed by the mother as well.

If either parent denies that the man is the father, DNA testing may be done to prove paternity. Proving paternity does not automatically deem the man the child’s legal father. This can be done through a court proceeding.

Experts Say…

Local office of Lisé L. Edwards, serving Norman, OK and Cleveland County, mentions the importance of a father’s relationship with his child by saying, “Building or maintaining a relationship with your minor child is important to any parent and can legally be more challenging for a father, especially if he is not married to or living with the child’s mother… Just because you aren’t or are no longer in a relationship with your child’s mother doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve the right to a loving, healthy relationship with your minor children.”
