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.

Parma, Ohio – DNA Testing
Establishing paternity in Parma, Ohio
Unwed parents can establish paternity in Parma, Ohio, in two ways. They can sign the Acknowledgment Affidavit of Paternity at the hospital after the child is born, or they can go to court. If both parents agree on paternity, they can sign the form at the hospital, and the staff can usually help them with the paperwork. The affidavit must be signed before the notary public or a witness and filed to the Vital Statistics and the Central Paternity Registry. If both parents sign the affidavit, they agree that the man is the biological and legal father, and his name can then be added to the child’s birth certificate.
If the mother or alleged father doubts paternity or disagrees, they can go to court. Going through the court often involves a DNA test to prove whether the man is the birth father. The paternity test results will be sent to the judge, who can decide whether to establish paternity. If paternity is established, then the judge can also establish custody, visitation hours, or child support if necessary.
DNA test helps reunite Parma family after years apart
In 2021, Joe had a regular day at work when a woman walked into the barbershop holding an envelope with his name on it. There was a picture inside the envelope of Kelli with her mother, who Joe had not seen for 55 years. Kelli said to Joe she thought he might be her dad. He was 80 years old, and Kelli was 55.
Not even three hours after Kelli and Joe met, they were taking DNA tests to determine their biological relationship. The tests returned positive, proving they were related and that he was her biological father. Joe had no idea he had a daughter, and immediately he decided to introduce her to his wife and children. Since that day, they never missed a chance to spend time together, taking advantage of every opportunity to smile together. It was unexpected for Joe, but it had positively changed his life, and Kelli could not have been happier to finally meet her father!
