DNA Test - Arcadia, California

Arcadia CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Arcadia, California clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Arcadia DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Arcadia, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Arcadia, CA

In Arcadia, California, the process of establishing paternity is relatively straightforward. If both parents are sure about their biological ties to the child, they can sign the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage, typically done at the hospital soon after childbirth. However, if circumstances change or doubts arise, this document can also be signed later.

Should disputes or uncertainties emerge regarding paternity, court intervention is an option. When parents have disagreements or one party challenges the paternity, the court might mandate genetic testing. This testing involves a simple cheek swab, ensuring it's quick and painless, yet highly accurate. If paternity gets legally established, other matters like child support, custody, and visitation rights can also be decided.

Arcadia, California: Contesting paternity

There may be multiple reasons why the alleged father decides to contest paternity. He might doubt the accuracy of the DNA test results or suspect tampering. Sometimes, the results may be challenged if the husband is sterile or impotent and the wife conceives. Also, if a man rethinks his decision after having initially signed the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage, he gets a 60-day window from the signing date to challenge it.

However, in instances of fraud, coercion, or mistakes during the declaration's signing, the man can retain the right to challenge paternity even after the 60 day window has passed. In these cases, many people choose to seek advice from a lawyer.
