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.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Anthem, AZ
Unwed couples that have a child will need to establish paternity. Paternity can be established in three ways — by presumption of paternity, by signing a voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity, or through the court system.
In Anthem, AZ, a man is presumed to be the father if he marries the mother within 10 months of the child’s birth, genetic testing shows a 95 percent or higher probability that he’s the father, or if both parents sign the birth certificate.
If both parents agree about who the father is, they can sign a voluntary, legal document called an Acknowledgment of Paternity. The form will be witnessed, notarized, and filed through the court.
Paternity may also be established through the court system in a paternity lawsuit. DNA testing for paternity may be ordered by the court. If DNA testing is ordered but the man does not show up for testing, the judge may order a default judgment of paternity and issue orders for child support.
“If you are an unmarried father who wants legal decision-making and a dependable parenting time schedule, then you must first establish that you are indeed the child’s biological parent,” says Arizona’s Stewart Law Group. “Logically, paternity establishment always comes before child custody proceedings. Only after paternity is established (either by the father’s voluntary acknowledgment or by the court’s finding of paternity upon DNA evidence) can an unmarried parent seek custody.” The Law Group also stresses the importance of DNA testing by saying, “Establishing paternity by DNA genetic testing is important on many levels. The father may have an inheritable medical condition, making genetic testing necessary for the proper care of the child… Every putative father should insist on DNA genetic testing to establish the basis for his duty to pay child support with clear scientific evidence.”
