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.

Oakhurst CA DNA Testing
California’s Parentage Opportunity Program (POP)
Unwed parents in Oakhurst and elsewhere in the state of California can take advantage of the state’s Parentage Opportunity Program (POP). This voluntary program allows eligible parents to establish legal paternity without cost and without having to go through the court system.
When both parents agree about the identity of the child’s father, they can sign a Declaration of Parentage form, which has the same authority as a court order. To take advantage of this, parents should complete the form as soon after the child’s birth as possible. The form can be completed at the hospital at the time the child is born or at other official locations such as the local child support agency office, county welfare department, local registrar’s office, or the courts.
Benefits of Establishing Paternity in California
According to A People’s Choice, a registered legal document service serving Madera County, there are many benefits to establishing legal paternity. For the mother, the primary benefit is the ability to seek child support from the child’s legal father. The child also benefits by having access to the father’s insurance benefits, pensions, Social Security, and veterans’ benefits. After legal paternity is established, the father can also request visitation and custody rights.
Filing a California Paternity Petition
When a child is born to an unmarried mother in California and the parents do not agree about the child’s parentage, the courts may order a DNA test. If the test concludes that the man is the child’s biological father, the courts will issue an order declaring him the child’s legal father. Once this is done, the courts can also rule on child support, custody, and visitation.
During the paternity petition process, either party can request a name change for the child and/or an amendment to the child’s birth certificate. In Madera County, the family law court is located at 200 South G Street Madera, CA 93637.
