DNA Test – Anderson, California

Anderson CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Anderson, California 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.

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 Anderson DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing Paternity in Anderson, CA

When an unmarried Anderson couple has a child, they will need to establish paternity for the father to gain legal rights and responsibilities. Establishing legal paternity also contributes towards the wellbeing of the child, as it allows for requests of child support services, medical and/or life insurance coverage, and social security coverage for the child. For Anderson parents who need to establish paternity, the state of California offers a fast, convenient, and free method.

Under the Parentage Opportunity Program (POP), parents can complete a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage form at the hospital or through a Shasta County Child Support services office to establish paternity. Once this form is filed, there will be a 60-day waiting period before the permanent establishment where the document can be revoked in the event the parents learn the paternity presumption was incorrect.

Navigating Difficult Paternity Issues in Anderson, CA

In certain complicated situations, an Anderson mother who recently had a child may have a hard time locating her child’s biological father. For the mother to establish paternity, apply for child support, or enforce monthly support payments, California must be able to identify and verify the child’s biological father first. For Anderson mothers who are struggling to locate their child’s father, the county can help you locate a noncustodial parent by opening a case with the Department of Child Support Services (DCSS).

DCSS will then attempt to pull information from departments and agencies such as the Department of Motor Vehicles and credit reporting agencies to locate the father. If the father is located, Shasta County Family Court can then summon the individual to submit to DNA testing to support the paternity claim. Once paternity is legally established, the mother can then request child support services.

Experts in Anderson, CA Say…

After two Anderson parents establish paternity, there may be issues regarding the child’s custody. If two parents cannot settle on a co-parenting agreement that works best for the child, the two will need to establish one in Shasta County Court. According to Anderson Family Law Attorney Jason Sherlock, California has very specific laws when addressing the best interests of children.

Regardless if the parental relationship isn’t working for issues of failed relationship or marriage, the interests of the child will always be put first in court. This will include the assessment of various factors, such as current living situations, income, and criminal records, to create a legal co-parenting agreement that works in the best interest of the child.
