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.

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.

Ann Arbor, Michigan - DNA Testing

Local DNA Stories

When Roberta Estes was 18 months old, her mother discovered that her father had two wives, so she left him. Roberta, from a small town just outside of Ann Arbor, MI, grew up wanting to know more about where she came from, wishing to find her half-brother, whose mother was the other wife of the father. Through research and DNA testing, Roberta was able to learn a lot about where she came from. She also found her half-brother, who lived just three hours away from her, and the two of them have become close.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Ann Arbor, MI

Unmarried parents in Ann Arbor must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. Paternity can be established voluntarily if both parents agree to sign an Affidavit of Parentage form. If the child's mother and alleged father do not agree to sign the form, paternity can be established with a court order and DNA testing to prove that the man is the child's biological father.

Experts Say...

Reed Law Group in Ann Arbor explains the process of establishing paternity. "When a child is born to married parents in Michigan, the mother's husband is presumed to be the child's legal father," the law group says. "However, if a child is born to unmarried parents in Michigan and the parents are no longer in a relationship with one another, before the mother can seek child support or the father can seek custody and visitation rights, paternity must be established." The law group explains that establishing paternity is important for the child, mother, and father. "It allows a child to learn more about their family history and health history, and it allows the child to develop a relationship with both parents. In addition, the child receives financial support from both parents."
