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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Anaheim DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Paternity Programs in Anaheim, CA

Through the California Department of Health and Human Services, Anaheim parents have easy access to the Parentage Opportunity Program. This program is used by thousands of California residents each year to establish a legal parent-child relationship free of charge in situations where two parents are not married at the time of their child's birth.

Thanks to the California Parentage Program, Anaheim parents can establish paternity at the hospital following a child's birth simply by signing and filing a Declaration of Paternity. Once this form is filed with the state, the biological father will gain legal rights and responsibilities over the child. Note that if there is any reasonable doubt that more than one individual could be the child's father, a parent must first seek DNA paternity testing to prevent later legal complications.

Assistance Establishing Paternity in Anaheim, CA

Not always can a paternity establishment in Anaheim be as simple as signing and completing a form. In some instances, a parent may refuse to sign a Declaration of Paternity based on the belief that that paternity claim is false, or just general refusal. Without the legal establishment of paternity, a parent will not be able to seek child support, nor will the father gain parental rights.

In these situations, a parent will need to submit a petition to establish paternity through Orange County Family Court. During this process, a judge will issue a summons to the opposing parent and request that DNA testing is first completed. If the results of this test identify the biological father, a judge can then establish paternity as well as a child support agreement.

Rescinding a Paternity Establishment in Anaheim, CA

For Anaheim parents who establish paternity without the use of DNA testing, it's important to understand the risks in the event mistaken paternity is learned later on down the line. According to California paternity laws, parents have up to 60 days after signing to submit a Rescission Form for the Declaration of Paternity (CS 915) in court if it is learned that the previously assumed father is not biologically related to a child.

Following this 60-day mark, it becomes much more difficult for Anaheim parents to disestablish paternity as well as to remove any accompanying child support obligations. From here, the individual looking to rescind the paternity establishment will likely need to seek legal assistance, where a judge will likely request proof of DNA testing to support the claim.
