DNA Test - Avondale, Arizona

Avondale AZ DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Avondale, Arizona 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.

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

Avondale, AZ - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Thomas Law Office in Phoenix, serving Avondale and Maricopa County, explains why fathers should consider DNA testing. "Research shows that roughly 30 to 60 percent of married individuals in the United States will engage in infidelity at some point in their marriage and approximately two to three percent of all children are the product of infidelity," the law firm said. "Men need to set aside their pride and make sure they are not being duped. There is also the topic of paternity fraud," the firm said. "Those are hard to prove and therefore, men are advised to get tested before they admit to paternity. If a person finds out that he is not the father, and if he has been financially supporting that child, he may have rights to reimbursement and damages. He should seek legal advice immediately."

Establishing Paternity in Avondale, AZ

Establishing paternity is necessary for unmarried fathers to obtain parental rights to the child and for mothers to receive financial support. Unmarried Avondale parents must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. The easiest way to establish paternity in Avondale is by signing an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. The form is voluntary and should only be signed if the parents agree on the child's biological father. Parents can also file a paternity action and establish paternity in court.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Avondale, AZ

Unmarried Avondale parents should not sign a voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity if either parent questions the child's biological father. Instead, parents should obtain a DNA test to prove paternity before signing the form. Home DNA test kits are not admissible in court; DNA tests must be analyzed at a certified laboratory. If establishing paternity in court, the judge may also order a DNA test.

Avondale Family Court cases are held at the Maricopa County Family Department, located at 201 W. Jefferson St. in Phoenix.
