Intergovernmental and International Cases and Genetic Testing

Legal Authority

Genetic testing is part of the process of establishing paternity. When the one of the parties are from another governmental entity or located internationally Oklahoma Child Support Services can complete this process. Here is how to do it.

Incoming cases
(OK will be the responding state)

Review the UIFSA packet to make sure all necessary documents are completed. The packet should include the following:

  • I16F: Declaration in Support of Establishing Paternity (if paternity needs to be established)
  • I17F: Uniform Support Petition
  • I18F: General Testimony
  • I35: Personal Information form
  • ITCIE: Confidential Information Form – EST
  • IT1E: Transmittal 1 – Initial Request – EST

If any of these forms are missing, you must reach out to the initiating state and request them before proceeding.

If family violence is being claimed, pay special attention for the I19 – Nondisclosure Finding Affidavit.

When it is time to schedule genetic testing, access IdentiLink, LabCorp’s online genetic test scheduling website and follow the prompts to provide the required information.

It is recommended to use the notes section to request a few extra days to extend the test date for the party(ies) who live in the initiating state. This helps to ensure there is enough time to receive the notification and make arrangements to appear for the genetic test.

Outgoing cases
(OK is the initiating state)

When it is determined OK does not have jurisdiction to establish a case, the caseworker will need to send a UIFSA packet to the state where the NCP lives to request paternity establishment and/or order establishment.

The UIFSA packet must include the following documents. The caseworker may need to help the CP complete these forms.

  • I16F: Declaration in Support of Establishing Paternity (if paternity needs to be established)
  • I17F: Uniform Support Petition
  • I18F: General Testimony
  • I19: Nondisclosure Finding Affidavit (if family violence is being claimed)
  • I35: Personal Information form
  • ITCIE: Confidential Information Form – EST
  • IT1E: Transmittal 1 – Initial Request – EST
