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.

Pryor OK DNA Testing
Voluntary Acknowledgment of Parentage
In 2006, the state of Oklahoma passed a Uniform Parentage Act (UPA), which simplified the state’s voluntarily acknowledged paternity form. Completing this form is the easiest way for unwed parents to establish legal paternity for their child. It’s free to file the form at the hospital when the child is born. If parents file the form after they leave the hospital and they want a copy of the new birth certificate, it will cost a fee.
Parents should only sign this form if they are completely sure about the identity of the child’s father. However, it is also possible to rescind an acknowledgment within 60 days after it has been filed.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Human Resources’ “Paternity Handbook,” if one or both parents aren’t sure who the child’s father is, genetic testing is recommended. This can be done by consulting with an attorney or filing a case with the Oklahoma Child Support Services. In Pryor, the Child Support and Social Service Office is located at 501 S. Elliott, Pryor, OK 74361. If the alleged father denies he is the child’s biological father, a judge may order him to take a DNA test. Once it’s determined that a man is a child’s biological father, the courts can issue rulings regarding legal paternity, child support, visitation, and custody.
Rights and Responsibilities of Parenthood
A child’s legal parents have certain rights and obligations. In the state of Oklahoma, once a man has been deemed a child’s legal father, he will have the right to request visitation, seek custody, and make important decisions about the child’s health and medical care. He can also receive information about the child’s health and education and be informed before the courts have any hearings to terminate his legal rights. He’s also legally required to provide necessary financial support for the child. The courts will determine this amount and the man is obligated to pay it regardless of his relationship with the child’s mother.
