DNA Test - Allen, Texas

Allen TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Allen, Texas locations:

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
Avuncular DNA Test (aunt/uncle and niece/nephew)

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 people being tested. 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 registering online and shipping the specimens to us.

Establishing Paternity in Allen, TX

In Allen, TX, parents who aren't married must establish paternity for their child to have a legal father. The father has no legal rights to the child until paternity is established. The easiest way to establish paternity is by signing an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. Both parents must agree to sign the voluntary form. Otherwise, they'll need to establish paternity in court, and the court will order DNA testing to determine paternity. Establishing paternity is important for the child, mother, and father. It allows both parents to develop relationships with the child and gives the child a sense of identity. Once paternity is established, the parents can receive visitation, child support, and custody orders. The child has access to benefits, such as social security, veterans' benefits, inheritance, medical insurance, and other available benefits. The child can also obtain access to medical records from both sides of the family, and both parents can participate in decision-making for the child.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Allen, TX

If a mother and alleged father go to court to establish paternity or if they question paternity, DNA testing is used to prove the child's biological father. DNA testing requires cheek swabs to collect DNA specimens, which proves paternity with 99% accuracy. Once paternity results are obtained, paternity can be established.

Experts Say...

Megan Rachel, family law attorney serving Allen, TX, explains paternity. "Establishing the legal paternity of a child offers many benefits, Rachel says. "In addition to providing the child with information regarding their biological father, the establishment of paternity opens the doors for either parent to pursue specific legal actions." She continues to say, "Establishing paternity is a crucial step in the relationship between the child and their parents."
