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.

Springdale, Arizona – DNA Testing
DNA Test Reunites Springdale Woman with Her Biological Mother
Springdale resident Laura Mabry was adopted in 1968. More than 50 years later, she took a DNA test with the intention of learning more about her biological family. It led her to her biological mother, whom she was able to communicate with via email and text. Her mother eventually revealed the identity of her father, letting her know that they had been high school sweethearts.
After seeking out and connecting with her father, Mabry put him in touch with her mother and they immediately began to bond. After half a century, Mabry’s biological parents reunited and the two were married. When asked about the turn of events, Mabry said that this love story shaped the person she is today.
Establishing Legal Paternity in Springdale
There are two primary ways for unmarried couples to establish paternity in Arkansas. The first is to complete and file a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form, which can be done any time before the child turns 18. The second is for either parent to petition the courts to establish paternity. In this case, the courts may order genetic DNA testing to confirm that the man in question is the child’s biological father.
According to the Springdale-based Crouch, Harwell, Fryar, and Ferner law group, a man is not considered a child’s legal father until one of the above steps has been completed, even if he voluntarily pays child support and/or his name is on the child’s birth certificate. A father must be officially named a child’s legal father before he has any legal rights to the child or obligations to provide financial support.
Paternity and Father’s Rights
Attorneys at the Patrick Benca law firm, which serves Springdale and the surrounding area, state that men who have not established legal paternity should do so as soon as possible. Until legal paternity has been established, a man cannot seek custody of or visitation with the child. Even if the child’s parents have a good relationship, if things were to sour, the man would have no legal rights until paternity has been established.
