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.

Roswell, NM - DNA Testing

New Mexico's Paternity Registry

According to American Adoptions, an organization that serves clients in Roswell and the surrounding area, the state of New Mexico has a paternity registry, also called a putative father registry. This allows a child's father to register his relationship with the child. The registry is available to men who have signed and filed an acknowledgment of paternity form, have been declared the child's legal father through the court system, or have filed a notice of intent to claim paternity.

If a man signs up for the registry within 10 days from when the child is born, he has a right to be notified if the mother attempts to put the child up for adoption.

The Link Between Paternity and Child Support

Child support payments help cover the costs of raising a child, including expenses such as food, housing, clothing, education, and more. To receive a court order for child support, unmarried parents must first establish a child's legal paternity. This can be done using a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form or through a court order. Roswell residents can get assistance from the New Mexico Child Support Office, located at 2732 Wilshire Blvd, Roswell, NM 88201.

Filing a Petition to Establish Parentage in Roswell

When a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form is not an option, it may be necessary for unmarried parents to establish paternity by filing a legal petition with the courts. Roswell residents can do this through the District Court of New Mexico, which has a courthouse located at 500 N. Richardson Roswell, NM 88201. A court order can be used to establish a child's legal parentage, then the courts can make important decisions regarding visitation and custody. Once the visitation (time-sharing) arrangement has been made, the courts can also determine the amount of child support to be paid.
