DNA Test - Bastrop, Texas

Bastrop TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bastrop, Texas 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.

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Bastrop, TX

Under Texas paternity law, an unmarried father will possess no parental rights over his child until he properly establishes paternity with the child's mother. A paternity establishment is used to legally declare a Bastrop child's biological father and must be completed to have his name placed on the child's birth certificate and for him to seek visitation and/or custody.

In addition to legally declaring the father, the process of establishing paternity also offers significant benefits for both the Bastrop mother and child. For example, paternity must be established for the mother to request monthly child support assistance from the non-custodial father. Likewise, a Bastrop child must have a legally declared father to collect certain benefits from the father, including health insurance, inheritance, and social security.

Assistance Establishing Paternity in Bastrop, TX

While the easiest way to establish paternity in Bastrop is to complete an Acknowl­edg­ment of Pater­ni­ty (AOP) at the hospital following a child's birth, it's not always this simple. Because this is a voluntary process, if either parent believes that the assumed paternity of a child is incorrect, they can refuse to sign the acknowledgment and choose not to establish paternity.

In such cases, it would be wise for the parent seeking the establishment to file a petition to establish paternity with the Bastrop County Court as soon as possible. A court-ordered paternity establishment prompts a judge to issue a court summons for the opposing parent along with DNA testing to identify the biological father. If the child's paternity is identified, paternity can then be established.

Paternity Experts in Bastrop, TX Say…

Following the legal establishment of paternity, certain responsibilities must be taken by a Bastrop father. According to Bastrop family law attorney James Evans, once a father's paternity is confirmed by a DNA test, he can be held responsible for child support and potentially be required to provide compensation for child-raising expenses, such as medical and education costs. Once paternity is confirmed, a father will also gain the right to request visitation or partial custody, depending on a Bastrop County judge's decision.
