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

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Antioch, CA

In Antioch, CA, you may use DNA testing to prove paternity if you have not yet established paternity. DNA testing may be necessary if you want to have access to medical records, government benefits, health insurance, and child support for your child.

In Antioch, CA, paternity does not need to be established if a child is born to two married parents. In this case, it is assumed that the husband is the father of the child.

If a child is born to unmarried parents, paternity will need to be established. Paternity can be established voluntarily if both parents agree to sign a Declaration of Parentage, or by letting the courts decide through a court order.

In Antioch, CA, a child does not have a legal father until paternity is established, even if the father proves he’s the biological father through DNA testing.

Experts Say…

Fishel Law Firm, which serves Antioch, CA, explains what happens when voluntarily establishing paternity is not an option for two parents. “A mother may file a paternity action to establish that the man she believes to be her child’s father in fact is, or, if the mother is receiving public assistance, the state may initiate the action to recover its costs from the father. The putative, or probable, father’s presence in court will be demanded, and he may be required to submit to DNA testing if he contests his paternity. Genetic blood test results are usually available within a few weeks, and they can establish (or negate) paternity with about 99 percent accuracy. If paternity is established in this manner, the court will enter an order regarding the father’s paternity. The father then becomes legally obligated to pay child support according to the state’s guidelines, which are generally based on both parents’ incomes and the needs of the children. A father may also initiate legal action to establish his own paternity.”
