Read Oregon Paternity Statutes
Oregon Paternity Law: Section 109
109.060 Legal status and legal relationships when parents not married.
The legal status and legal relationships and the rights and obligations between a person and the descendants of the person, and between a person and parents of the person, their descendants and kindred, are the same for all persons, whether or not the parents have been married. [1957 c.411 §1]
109.070 Establishing paternity.
(1) The paternity of a person may be established as follows:
(a) A man is rebuttably presumed to be the father of a child born to a woman if he and the woman were married to each other at the time of the child’s birth, without a judgment of separation, regardless of whether the marriage is void.
(b) A man is rebuttably presumed to be the father of a child born to a woman if he and the woman were married to each other and the child is born within 300 days after the marriage is terminated by death, annulment or dissolution or after entry of a judgment of separation.
(c) By the marriage of the parents of a child after the birth of the child, and the parents filing with the State Registrar of the Center for Health Statistics the voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form as provided for by ORS 432.287.
(d) By filiation proceedings.
(e) By filing with the State Registrar of the Center for Health Statistics the voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form as provided for by ORS 432.287. Except as otherwise provided in subsections (4) to (7) of this section, this filing establishes paternity for all purposes.
(f) By having established paternity through a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity process in another state.
(g) By paternity being established or declared by other provision of law.
(2) The paternity of a child established under subsection (1)(a) or (c) of this section may be challenged in an action or proceeding by the husband or wife. The paternity may not be challenged by a person other than the husband or wife as long as the husband and wife are married and cohabiting, unless the husband and wife consent to the challenge.
(3) If the court finds that it is just and equitable, giving consideration to the interests of the parties and the child, the court shall admit evidence offered to rebut the presumption of paternity in subsection (1)(a) or (b) of this section.
(4)(a) A party to a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity may rescind the acknowledgment within the earlier of:
(A) Sixty days after filing the acknowledgment; or
(B) The date of a proceeding relating to the child, including a proceeding to establish a support order, in which the party wishing to rescind the acknowledgment is also a party. For the purposes of this subparagraph, the date of a proceeding is the date on which an order is entered in the proceeding.
(b) To rescind the acknowledgment, the party shall sign and file with the State Registrar of the Center for Health Statistics a written document declaring the rescission.
(5)(a) A signed voluntary acknowledgment of paternity filed in this state may be challenged and set aside in circuit court at any time after the 60-day period referred to in subsection (4) of this section on the basis of fraud, duress or a material mistake of fact.
(b) The challenge may be brought by:
(A) A party to the acknowledgment;
(B) The child named in the acknowledgment; or
(C) The Department of Human Services or the administrator, as defined in ORS 25.010, if the child named in the acknowledgment is in the care and custody of the department under ORS chapter 419B and the department or the administrator reasonably believes that the acknowledgment was signed because of fraud, duress or a material mistake of fact.
(c) The challenge shall be initiated by filing a petition with the circuit court. Unless otherwise specifically provided by law, the challenge shall be conducted pursuant to the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure.
(d) The party bringing the challenge has the burden of proof.
(e) Legal responsibilities arising from the acknowledgment, including child support obligations, may not be suspended during the challenge, except for good cause.
(f) If the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the acknowledgment was signed because of fraud, duress or material mistake of fact, the court shall set aside the acknowledgment unless, giving consideration to the interests of the parties and the child, the court finds that setting aside the acknowledgment would be substantially inequitable.
(6) Within one year after a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form is filed in this state and if blood tests, as defined in ORS 109.251, have not been completed, a party to the acknowledgment, or the department if the child named in the acknowledgment is in the care and custody of the department under ORS chapter 419B, may apply to the administrator for an order for blood tests in accordance with ORS 416.443.
(7)(a) A voluntary acknowledgment of paternity is not valid if, before the party signed the acknowledgment:
(A) The party signed a consent to the adoption of the child by another individual;
(B) The party signed a document relinquishing the child to a public or private child-caring agency;
(C) The party’s parental rights were terminated by a court; or
(D) In an adjudication, the party was determined not to be the biological parent of the child.
(b) Notwithstanding any provision of subsection (1)(c) or (e) of this section or ORS 432.287 to the contrary, an acknowledgment signed by a party described in this subsection and filed with the State Registrar of the Center for Health Statistics does not establish paternity and is void.

FAQ’s About DNA Testing In Oregon
A Oregon 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 Oregon home DNA test can answer your biological questions privately, quickly and affordably.
The recognized and accepted process in Oregon 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.
Unlike many locations outside of the U.S.A., Oregon 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, or simply 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. 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.
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.
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.
