The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)

Avuncular DNA Test (aunt/uncle and niece/nephew)

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 West Chester, OH

Following the recent birth of a child, steps will need to be taken to establish legal paternity in the state of Ohio if two West Chester parents are not married at the time of their child's birth. Establishing paternity is important, as it legally declares the child's father and places his details on the birth certificate. Paternity also establishes legal rights for benefits, such as health insurance and health benefits, and is required for either parent to seek child support services.

The easiest way to go about the paternity establishment process in West Chester, OH is by filing a Paternity Affidavit. This legally binding document is completely voluntary and must be signed by both parent parties to effectively establish the child's legal father. This form will be presented for completion at the hospital following the child's birth, but can also be completed at a Butler County Child Support Enforcement office.

Navigating Paternity Establishment Concerns in West Chester, OH

Not always will two West Chester parents be on the same page when it comes time to establish legal paternity for a child. For those who are hesitant to establish paternity due to doubts over the biological father's identity, either parent can file an administrative order to have DNA testing completed. If results successfully identify the child's father, then both parents can move forward with a Paternity Affidavit.

In situations where either parent refuses to complete the establishment process, the best thing to do is file a paternity petition in Butler County Family Court. This process will allow the courts to administer a legal order requiring both parents to appear in court and submit necessary details to establish paternity. Typically, the courts will request DNA testing to accurately determine parentage.

Paternity Programs in West Chester, OH

To protect the rights of West Chester men who believe they have possibly fathered a child, the state of Ohio established the Putative Father Registry. By registering with the database, a West Chester man who believes he has fathered a child but does not have legal rights will be notified in the event the child is placed for adoption. The man must register with the database no later than 15 days after a child's birth.

Bear in mind that by registering with this database, a father is not taking steps to legally establish paternity. If this is the goal, a West Chester man must file a paternity petition with Butler County Family Court and request DNA testing.
