(5) A JFS 07038, "Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-1-99 of the Administrative Code), has been filed with the central paternity registry and the JFS 07038 has not become final under former section 3111.211 or 5101.314 or section 2151.232 , 3111.25 , or 3111.821 of the Revised Code.

When one of the parties brings an action to rescind the JFS 07038, the CSEA shall proceed as described in rule 5101:12-40-17 of the Administrative Code.

(G) In accordance with section 3111.25 of the Revised Code, a JFS 07038 is final and enforceable without ratification by a court when the JFS 07038 has been filed with the CPR, the information on the JFS 07038 has been entered in the birth registry, and the JFS 07038 has not been rescinded and is not subject to rescission as described in paragraph (C) of rule 5101:12-40-17 of the Administrative Code.

In accordance with section 3111.821 of the Revised Code, a JFS 07038 that has not become final shall be considered final as of the date of the issuance of an administrative support order and neither party to the administrative order raised the issue of the existence or non-existence of a father and child relationship.

5101:12-40-20.1 Scheduling and conducting genetic tests.

(A) Upon receipt of a request for the determination of the existence or non-existence of a father and child relationship that contains the information described in paragraph (C) of rule 5101:12-40-20 of the Administrative Code, the child support enforcement agency (CSEA) shall assign an administrative officer to consider the request.

(B) The CSEA shall schedule genetic tests for a date that is no later than forty-five days after the administrative officer has been assigned.

(C) In accordance with rule 5101:12-30-10 of the Administrative Code, the CSEA shall send the JFS 07754, "Notice of Request for Paternity Determination and Order to Appear for Genetic Tests" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code) to the natural mother of the child, each man presumed to be the father of the child, and each man alleged to be the father of the child.

(D) The CSEA may change the child's surname as part of the administrative order establishing paternity. When requested by the natural mother, presumed father or alleged father, the CSEA shall make available the JFS 04070, "Addendum to the Administrative Order to Modify the Birth Record - Child's Surname" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code).

(E) In accordance with sections 3111.58 and 3705.09 of the Revised Code when a presumed or alleged father is found to be the natural father of the child and the determination would result in a variance with the child's birth record, the CSEA is required to include the change to the birth record as part of the administrative order establishing paternity.

(F) Pursuant to section 3111.44 of the Revised Code, after issuing a JFS 07754, the administrative officer may schedule a conference with the mother and the alleged father to provide information. If a conference is scheduled and no other man is presumed to be the father of the child, the administrative officer shall provide the mother and alleged father the opportunity to sign a JFS 07038, "Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-1-99 of the Administrative Code). Should the mother and alleged father sign the JFS 07038, the administrative officer shall cancel the genetic testing order the officer had issued. Regardless of whether a conference is held, when the mother and alleged father do not sign a JFS 07038 or when the JFS 07038 cannot be notarized or filed because another man is presumed to be the father of the child, the child, the mother, and the alleged father shall submit to genetic testing in accordance with the order issued by the administrative officer.

(G) In accordance with section 3111.43 of the Revised Code, when a CSEA is unable to obtain service of process of the JFS 07754 on the presumed father, alleged father, or natural mother of the child within the timeframe prescribed in paragraph (B) of this rule, the CSEA shall proceed with collecting genetic testing samples from all of those persons who are present on the date the genetic testing is scheduled.

When service of process has not been obtained on the presumed father, alleged father, or natural mother of the child and that party appears for genetic testing, the CSEA shall have the parties complete one of the following:

(1) A JFS 01716, "Waiver of Service of Notice and Order to Appear for Genetic Testing" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code), accompanied by hand delivery of the JFS 07754, or

(2) A waiver of service form created by the CSEA that contains the following statement: "I have previously received a copy or have been provided a copy today of the JFS 07754, "Notice of Request for Paternity Determination and Order to Appear for Genetic Tests", and I voluntarily waive the right to receive the JFS 07754 by certified mail".

(H) A qualified examiner who is authorized by the court or the Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS) shall conduct the genetic testing. Upon completion of the genetic testing, the examiner shall send a complete report of the genetic testing results to the CSEA.

5101:12-40-20.2 Agreement to modify the child's surname.

(A) This rule describes the process that shall be followed when the child support enforcement agency (CSEA) changes the child's surname as part of the administrative order. This process shall be followed by a mother and alleged father when they agree to change the surname of a child if genetic testing shows a ninety-nine per cent or greater probability that the alleged father is the father of the child.

(B) When the JFS 07754, "Notice of Request for Paternity Determination and Order to Appear for Genetic Tests" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code) is issued to the parties they are advised that they may request the JFS 04070, "Addendum to the Administrative Order to Modify the Birth Record - Child's Surname" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code) from the CSEA if they are in agreement to change the child's surname. The natural mother and presumed or alleged father shall complete the JFS 04070 to agree to change the surname of the child.

(C) By completing the JFS 04070, the mother and presumed or alleged father indicate their agreement to change the child's surname only if the CSEA orders that a father and child relationship exists between the man and the child, in accordance with rule 5101:12-40-20.3 of the Administrative Code. The JFS 04070 shall be submitted to the CSEA on or before the date the genetic test results were received by the CSEA. When the parties submit the JFS 04070 to the CSEA, the change will be included in the administrative order only if the alleged father is determined to be the father of the child.

(D) The JFS 04070 is not an acknowledgment of paternity by either party and may not be construed as such in any subsequent action.

(E) The JFS 04070 is considered to be complete when:

(1) It is an original JFS 04070 signed by both parties;

(2) All requested information has been provided and is legible;

(3) There are no alterations to the information provided;

(4) Signatures and any handwritten information is in dark blue or black ink; and

(5) Both parents' signatures are properly notarized.

(F) The CSEA shall reject a JFS 04070 if it is incomplete or if the CSEA believes the JFS 04070 is fraudulent.

(G) When the CSEA issues a JFS 07771, "CSEA Administrative Order Non-existence of Father and Child Relationship" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code), or JFS 07773, "CSEA Administrative Order Paternity Finding Inconclusive" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code), the JFS 04070 is null and void.

5101:12-40-20.3 Administrative paternity orders.

(A) Issuing an establishment order.

Upon receipt of genetic testing results that show a ninety-nine per cent or greater probability that the alleged father is the father of the child, the administrative officer shall prepare and issue a JFS 07774, "CSEA Administrative Order Establishment of Paternity" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code), ordering that a father and child relationship exists between the man and the child. The child support enforcement agency (CSEA) shall attach the genetic testing results report to the JFS 07774. The CSEA shall not attach chain of custody documents.

(1) Name changes.

(a) The CSEA may allow the parties to change the surname of the child as part of the administrative order.

The administrative officer shall include the JFS 04070 as an addendum to the administrative order to change the child's surname and check the appropriate box on the JFS 07774.

(b) The CSEA shall first review the integrated perinatal health information system (IPHIS) to compare the father's information with the information contained in the birth record for this child. In accordance with section 3111.58 of the Revised Code, if the man determined to be the child's father is a man other than the man named in the child's birth record as the father or is otherwise at variance with the child's birth record, the administrative officer shall check the appropriate box on the JFS 07774.

(c) If no changes are to be made to the child's surname, or the CSEA determines the father's information on the child's birth record (as indicated in IPHIS) does not need to be modified, the CSEA will indicate no changes to the birth record are ordered by checking the appropriate box on the JFS 07774.

(2) In accordance with section 3111.51 of the Revised Code, unless the CSEA has reason to believe that a person named in the JFS 07774 is a potential victim of domestic violence, the JFS 07774 shall contain the full names, addresses, and social security numbers of the mother and father of the child who is the subject of the order and the full name and address of the child.

(3) In accordance with rule 5101:12-45-05.1 of the Administrative Code, the administrative officer shall schedule an administrative child support hearing by issuing the JFS 07782, "Notice of Administrative Hearing to Establish a Support Order" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code), in conjunction with the JFS 07774.

(B) Issuing an exclusion order.

Upon receipt of genetic testing results that show a less than ninety-nine per cent probability that the alleged father is the natural father of the child, the administrative officer shall prepare and issue a JFS 07771, "CSEA Administrative Order Non-existence of Father and Child Relationship" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code). The CSEA shall attach the genetic testing results report to the JFS 07771. The CSEA shall not attach chain of custody documents.

(1) The CSEA shall review the IPHIS system to compare the name of the man excluded as the father of the child with the name of the man identified as the father in the birth record for this child.

(2) In accordance with section 3111.58 of the Revised Code, if the man excluded as the child's father is the man named in the child's birth record as the father, the administrative officer shall indicate in the administrative order that the man shall be removed from the birth record by checking the appropriate box on the JFS 07771.

(3) If the man excluded does not appear on the child's birth record, the CSEA shall indicate no changes to the birth record are ordered by checking the appropriate box on the JFS 07771.

(C) Issuing an inconclusive order.

(1) When the alleged father or the mother willfully fails to submit to genetic testing or when either the mother, alleged father, or any person who is the custodian or guardian of the child willfully fails to submit the child to genetic testing, the CSEA shall issue the JFS 07773, "CSEA Administrative Order Paternity Finding Inconclusive" (effective or revised effective date as identified in rule 5101:12-40-99 of the Administrative Code).

(2) When the alleged father or mother willfully fails to submit to genetic testing or when the mother, alleged father, or any person who is the custodian or guardian of the child willfully fails to submit the child to genetic testing, the CSEA may proceed with one of the following actions:

(a) In accordance with section 3111.54 of the Revised Code request the court with jurisdiction in the county in which the agency is located to find the person in contempt pursuant to section 2705.02 of the Revised Code, or

(b) In accordance with section 3111.04 of the Revised Code, request the court make a determination in establishing the existence or non-existence of a parent child relationship.

(D) Parties' rights to bring action.

(1) The mother, alleged father, and the guardian or legal custodian of the child have the right to object to the JFS 07774 or the JFS 07771 by bringing an action under sections 3111.01 to 3111.18 of the Revised Code within thirty days after the date the administrative officer issues the JFS 07774 or the JFS 07771.

(2) When an action is not brought within thirty days of the issuance of the JFS 07774 or the JFS 07771, the JFS 07774 or JFS 07771 is final and enforceable by a court and may not be challenged in an action or proceeding under Chapter 3111. of the Revised Code.

(3) Any of the parties may bring an action under sections 3111.01 to 3111.18 of the Revised Code after a JFS 07773 has been issued.

(B) Instead of or in addition to genetic testing ordered pursuant to section 3111.09 of the Revised Code, the court may use a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) record of the child's mother, the child, the alleged father, or any other defendant that is stored in the DNA database, as described in section 109.573 of the Revised Code, to determine the existence of a parent and child relationship between the child and the child's mother, the alleged father, or another defendant. When the court orders the superintendent of the bureau of criminal identification and investigation to disclose information regarding a DNA record stored in the DNA database, the superintendent is required to send the information to the child support enforcement agency (CSEA) when the CSEA is a party to the action.

(C) When the CSEA is made a party to a judicial action instituted under sections 3111.01 to 3111.18 of the Revised Code and the court orders the CSEA to conduct genetic testing, the CSEA shall schedule the genetic testing to be conducted on a date that is no later than forty-five days after the CSEA receives the court order. The CSEA shall notify the court of the date and time of the genetic testing and the name of the laboratory that will conduct the genetic testing. If any party fails to submit to genetic testing on the scheduled date, the CSEA shall notify the court immediately of the failure.

(D) The genetic testing is required to be made by qualified examiners who are authorized by the court or the Ohio department of job and family services (ODJFS).

(E) When the CSEA receives the genetic testing results or a DNA record, the CSEA shall mail a copy of the report or information to the attorney of record for each party or, if a party is not represented by an attorney, to the party. The CSEA shall include a notice that the party may object to the admission into evidence of the report or DNA record by filing a written objection as described in division (D) of section 3111.12 of the Revised Code with the court that ordered the tests or ordered the disclosure of the information no later than fourteen days after the report or information was mailed to the attorney of record or to the party.

(F) In accordance with section 3111.09 of the Revised Code, any fees charged for genetic testing shall be paid by the party that requests the genetic testing, unless the custodian of the child is represented by the CSEA in its role as the IV-D agency, is a recipient of Ohio works first (OWF) for the benefit of the child, or the defendant in the action is found to be indigent, in which case the CSEA shall pay the costs of genetic testing.

When there is a dispute as to who shall pay the costs of genetic testing, the CSEA shall pay the costs. Neither the court nor the CSEA shall delay genetic testing due to a dispute as to who shall pay the costs.
