DNA Test - Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Atlanta, Georgia 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.

Atlanta, Georgia - DNA Testing

Local DNA Stories

In 2017, two students attending the same university in Atlanta used DNA testing and discovered they were long-lost brothers. Kieron Christian Graham, 20, and Vincent Ghant, 29, knew about each other and have been looking to find each other for years after Kieron was adopted as a baby.

Their mother decided to put Kieron up for adoption when he was three months old, feeling like she could not give him what he needed at that time. Growing up, he wondered about his biological family. In 2016, his adoptive parents gave him a DNA test and he was matched to Ghant as his brother. After finding Ghant on a Facebook search, he sent him a message, and the brothers found out they'd been living fifteen minutes away from each other. Not only were they living close to each other, but they were attending the same university and shared the same major. Kieron was reunited with his biological brother and mother thanks to DNA testing.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Atlanta, GA

If a child is born to married parents, the husband is the child's legal father, and the parents do not need to establish paternity. In Atlanta, GA, paternity must be established if the parents are not married for the father to have visitation and custody rights to the child. If both parents agree about who the biological father is, they establish paternity by signing a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement form. If the parents disagree with who the biological father is, either party may request DNA testing to prove paternity. If the parents still disagree on establishing paternity voluntarily, they can go to court, and the judge will decide on the child's legal father and issue orders for visitation, custody, and child support. For child support cases, the Atlanta Division of Child Support Services must obtain DNA testing if paternity has not been established.

Experts Say...

Atlanta law firm Stearns‑Montgomery & Proctor explains the importance of paternity establishment. "A child born out of wedlock in Georgia is considered illegitimate, giving the mother of the child rights not available to the father," the law firm explained," In the state of Georgia, establishing paternity declares the identity of the biological father. The mother involved in a paternity action can then collect child support from the child's father. A father may initiate a paternity case to establish legal and physical custody rights. As the firm states, "Without first establishing paternity, these issues cannot be addressed by a court."
