The Answer Is Yes
Video Transcribed: Hi, I’m your Oklahoma fathers’ rights lawyer. And I’m here talking about fatherhood and father’s rights. We got a lot of questions in here, and one of them is, can I get a DNA test paid for by DHS child support? And the answer is yes, they will pay for substantially most of the costs of a genetic test in the DHS Administrative Court.
That may not be your best route if you want to establish legal rights for your child. But if you’re hard on cash, it could be a way for you to save money on the road to getting rights.
Now, in the DHS Administrative proceeding, you can apply yourself to have a DNA test conducted in order to institute child support and Oklahoma DHS will find that it is in the best interest of the child for a child support order to be issued by the DHS Administrative Court, even if they’re not considering your custodial rights to that child.
After a successful DNA test in the child support court, you will be determined to be the father. And therefore you can use that determination in the district court to establish rights to the child. Now, this elongates the process of getting custodial rights to your child, and this can have an effect on what custodial rights you receive. So, act fast, act now.
