Aurora CO DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Aurora, Colorado 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:

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 Aurora DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Aurora, Colorado - DNA Testing

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Aurora, CO

Though paternity is automatically established for married parents in the state of Colorado, two unmarried Aurora parents will need to establish paternity themselves to receive parental and child benefits. Legally declaring the child's biological father through paternity establishment allows the man to receive his paternal rights, including the right to custody and to request child support services.

While establishing paternity benefits both parental parties, it's important to recognize the benefits it can also bring the child. Through the proper establishment of paternity, a child now has the ability to receive benefits from both parental parties, including but not limited to health insurance, inheritance, social security, and even military benefits.

Establishing Paternity in Aurora, CO

In the state of Colorado, two unmarried Aurora parents may establish paternity in one of two ways, by filing a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Parentage or through a court order. At the time of birth, hospital staff will present both parents with a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Parentage Form. This form is completely voluntary and must only be submitted if there is zero doubt about a child's paternity.

In the event that either parent refuses to sign this Acknowledgment, paternity must be established through a court order. Either parent may file a paternity petition through an Arapahoe County Family Court, where a judge can issue a court summons to the opposing parent. From here, DNA testing is often completed to confirm the child's father so a judge can legally establish paternity.

Notable Events Relating to Paternity and DNA Testing in Aurora, CO

In July 2020, Colorado Governor Jared Polis proclaimed the month of August to become Child Support Awareness Month. During the month of August, the state of Colorado will now recognize the importance of child support and the various state, county, and city workers that help make it possible. Through the use of Child Support Awareness Month, the importance of establishing paternity and using DNA testing to accurately confirm biological fathers can be recognized as a way to preserve the wellbeing of Colorado children.
