Specimens we can test for DNA
The easiest and most reliable way to obtain a DNA sample for paternity testing is to swab the inner cheeks of the alleged father and child or children. These skin cells are known as buccal cells, and they rub off easily onto cotton swabs and remain in place for analysis by our laboratory.
Other specimen samples, such as hair follicles, fingernails, and garments that might contain someone’s DNA, can also be tested. An Alternative Specimen DNA Test is done by ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.
Legal DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests
A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. Accurate results for DNA paternity testing with 99.99% confidence or greater take about a week.
When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Aliso Viejo DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

DNA Paternity Testing in Aliso Viejo, CA
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Aliso Viejo, CA
Parents that have a child outside of marriage need to establish paternity to give their child a legal father. In Aliso Viejo, CA, paternity can be established voluntarily, as long as both parents agree to sign an Acknowledgement of Parentage form. The form should only be signed if there are no doubts about the child’s biological father. If there are doubts, either parent may request DNA testing to prove the biological father before establishing paternity.
Another way to establish paternity is by requesting the local Child Support Agency to take action. As part of this process, they will also request a child support order.
Either parent can start a case and go to court to establish paternity and DNA testing may be ordered by the judge to determine the child’s biological father. In Aliso Viejo, CA, the alleged father also has a right to request DNA testing prior to establishing paternity. DNA samples are taken from the alleged father, mother, and child.
Moshtael Family Law, serving Aliso Viejo and Orange County, explains that it’s best to establish paternity in the hospital when the baby is born. “It is important to determine paternity as soon as possible,” the law firm explains, “because the court will not make any orders regarding visitation, custody, or support until paternity is legally established. According to Moshtael Family Law, orders for child support cannot be ordered without first establishing paternity.
The firm also explains what to do when a man isn’t sure if he’s the child’s father. “This is where genetic tests – likely a DNA test – are used to determine the child’s biological father.”
