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.

Establishing Paternity in Omak, WA

In Omak, if a child is born to married parents or a registered domestic partnership, the parents are automatically the child's legal parents. However, unmarried parents in Omak must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. The easiest way to establish paternity in Omak is by signing an Acknowledgment of Parentage, a voluntary legal form stating the child's father. Paternity is established once the form is signed, notarized, and filed with the Washington State Department of Health, Center for Health Statistics (DOH/CHS). If the parents cannot agree to establish paternity voluntarily, they can go to court. Omak residents can file an Acknowledgment of Paternity form at the Okanogan County Vital Records Office, located at 149 N 3rd Avenue in Okanogan.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Omak, WA

If establishing paternity in Omak or Okanogan County court, the judge may order a DNA test to determine the child's biological father. Although a DNA test is not required to sign an Acknowledgment of Parentage, parents can request a test before signing the form to ensure that the alleged father is the child's biological dad. A DNA test compares genetic factors in the alleged father and the child and determines the probability that he's the father.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

Establishing paternity means becoming a child's legal father, which provides many benefits to the mother, the father, and especially the child. With two legal parents, a child can establish relationships with both of them, have access to medical records from both families, and obtain certain benefits from both parents, like social security, inheritance, veterans' benefits, life insurance, and medical coverage. Mothers benefit by having someone to share parenting responsibilities with and receiving child support. Once the relationship becomes legal, fathers can seek visitation and custody orders. The Okanogan Child Support Office is located at 130 South Main Street in Omak.
