42-377 Legitimacy of children.

Children born to the parties, or to the wife, in a marriage relationship which may be dissolved or annulled pursuant to sections 42-347 to 42-381 shall be legitimate unless otherwise decreed by the court, and in every case the legitimacy of all children conceived before the commencement of the suit shall be presumed until the contrary is shown.

  1. Laws 1972, LB 820, § 31;
  2. Laws 1997, LB 229, § 21.

The presumption favoring legitimacy of children may only be rebutted by clear and convincing evidence beyond the testimony of husband or wife denying child’s legitimacy. Perkins v. Perkins, 198 Neb. 401, 253 N.W.2d 42 (1977). Presumed legitimacy of children born in wedlock may not be rebutted by the testimony or declaration of a parent. Ford v. Ford, 191 Neb. 548, 216 N.W.2d 176 (1974). This section does not create an irrebuttable presumption of legitimacy in the case of children conceived before the commencement of the dissolution action. Cavanaugh v. deBaudiniere, 1 Neb. App. 204, 493 N.W.2d 197 (1992). Child born out of wedlock; biological father registry; Department of Health and Human Services; duties.

The department shall maintain such registry and shall record the names and addresses of (a) any person adjudicated by a court of this state or by a court of another state or territory of the United States to be the biological father of a child born out of wedlock if a certified copy of the court order is filed with the registry by such person or any other person, (b) any putative father who has filed with the registry, prior to the receipt of notice under sections 43-104.12 to 43-104.16, a Request for Notification of Intended Adoption with respect to such child, and (c) any putative father who has filed with the registry a Notice of Objection to Adoption and Intent to Obtain Custody with respect to such child.

The person filing the notice shall notify the registry of any change of address pursuant to procedures prescribed in rules and regulations of the department.

(3) A request or notice filed under this section or section 43-104.02 shall be admissible in any action for paternity and shall estop the putative father from denying paternity of such child thereafter.

(4) Any putative father who files a Request for Notification of Intended Adoption or a Notice of Objection to Adoption and Intent to Obtain Custody with the biological father registry may revoke such filing. Upon receipt of such revocation by the registry, the effect shall be as if no filing had ever been made.

(5) The department shall not divulge the names and addresses of persons listed with the biological father registry to any other person except as authorized by law or upon order of a court of competent jurisdiction for good cause shown.

(6) The department may develop information about the registry and may distribute such information, through its existing publications, to the news media and the public.

Whether such person’s consent is required for the proposed adoption shall be determined by the Nebraska court having jurisdiction over the custody of the child pursuant to section 43-104.22, as part of proceedings required under section 43-104 to obtain the court’s consent to such adoption.

FAQ’s About DNA Testing In Nebraska

How Does A Nebraska Authorized At Home DNA Test Work?

A Nebraska home DNA test provides a cheap, private, simple, and accurate method to determine relationships such as paternity, sibling, grandparents, and aunt/uncle. Having your home DNA test kit processed in a AABB accredited lab is important. The same protocols used for a legally binding DNA test in the privacy and comfort of your own home or office will be used for your home DNA test.

Our Nebraska home DNA tests can answer your biological questions privately, quickly and affordably.

The recognized and accepted process in Nebraska for home paternity testing is very easy. People who take the home DNA test usually collect their DNA sample through a cheek swab, also called a buccal, swab. Rubbing the swab against the inside of the cheek painlessly collects the skin cells needed. Since we conduct two sets of tests on each buccal swab, there will be 4 swabs per person in your collection kit. Two swabs should be taken on each side of the mouth. Don’t smoke or drink coffee or tea for 30 minutes before the collection, and rinse the mouth with water. When you’re done, just put the samples in the envelope we provide, and return them to our lab in the prepaid overnight envelope we provide.

Does Nebraska Allow For Discreet, Or “Secret” DNA Testing?

Unlike many locations outside of the U.S.A., Nebraska allows testing using non-standard samples. This is a more discreet way of testing. If you have a particular concern about this, please check the laws in your state.

The cheek swab is the most common method of collection. Sometimes a test participant cant submit a sample because a family member is deceased, imprisoned, not wanting to test, orsimply unavailable. For these reasons, we also offer forensic DNA processing services for other types of DNA samples, which are referred to as “non-standard samples.” Ear wax, hair (must have the root attached), discharge on a tissue, nail clippings, and toothbrushes are the most common forensic samples. Lastly. forensic sampling prices apply for A viability test is required on all non-standard samples, which requires an additional fee. For more information about the different items that can be tested, please click on NON-STANDARD DNA SAMPLES.

What If One Of Us Lives In Nebraska And The Other Person Lives In Another State?

A lot of test participants live too far apart to do the home DNA test using the same DNA kit. For these situations, we offer an option to have multiple collection kits shipped out. Simply choose the option for an additional address when you place your order. Upon selecting that option, we will send a second collection kit to the address indicted for the additional kit(s). When your DNA samples and case information are received back in the lab, identical reference numbers will link them together.

What If I Need To Prove Paternity In Nebraska But The Father Is Not Available?

Paternity tests always give a clear yes or no answer. If the father is unavailable, there are other DNA tests we offer to determine paternity. For example, a sibling DNA test may be used to test for possible brothers and sisters. You can also perform a grandparent DNA test for the alleged grandparent and grandchild. The aunt/uncle avuncular DNA test with a full sibling of the alleged parent would also be convincing.

You may also want to do a Y-DNA test if two or more men want to find out if they are related through the male line. This test is also always conclusive. If more than one paternal relative is available to participate in a DNA test, consider doing a family genetic reconstruction DNA test instead. If you are not certain which choice is right for your situation, one of our Genetic Consultants would be glad to provide you help. Just give us a call at 1-855-362-5224.
