DNA Test – Austin, Texas

Austin TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Austin, Texas 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:

perm_identity
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
perm_identity
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
perm_identity
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 Austin DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Austin, Texas – DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Austin, TX

If a child was born or conceived when the father was not married to the mother, then paternity will need to be established. This can be done by the Acknowledgment of Paternity, which can be signed in the hospital once the baby is born. If this is not an option for you, the court can also establish paternity.

When the court is involved in establishing paternity, it usually orders a DNA test, and then a cheek swab will be taken. The results will be delivered to the court, so the court can decide whether to establish the man as a biological father or not. The Office of the Attorney General in Texas can also help with the whole process.

Benefits of establishing paternity in Dallas, Texas

There are multiple significant reasons why an individual should establish paternity. Once verified, the child has a legal connection to his father, and the father’s name can appear on the birth certificate. It is also necessary to have paternity established before asking the court to order child support, cash medical support, or health care coverage. Issues relating to parenting time or custody also usually require paternity to be established first. The child can then access his father’s medical history, and if the father dies, the child can have death benefits or possible inheritance.

Dallas, TX: Challenging paternity

If a man is presumed the father because he was or is married to a woman who got pregnant, but he is not the biological father, there is a legal form—A Denial of Paternity—that can be signed. If the mother or father is unwilling to sign the form, they may need to file a petition to the court. The court will then decide if he is the biological or legal father through a DNA test.
