Bayamon PR DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bayamon, Puerto Rico 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.

DNA Testing in Bayamon, Puerto Rico

Is Establishing Paternity in Puerto Rico Important?

The answer to this question is yes! According to Bayamon attorneys at Zorrilla & Silvestrini, when a child is born out of wedlock, the mother has sole custody. This means that the father has no say in how the child is raised. If the father wants visitation with or custody of the child or the mother wants financial child support, paternity must be established first.

It's also important to note that a man is not considered a child's legal father until paternity is established — even if the child is living with the putative (alleged) father.

How to Establish Paternity in Puerto Rico

When a child is born to married parents, paternity is presumed and no action is necessary. For children born to unmarried parents, there are several ways to establish paternity in Puerto Rico. This includes:

Placing the father's name on the child's birth certificate (for children born in Puerto Rico)
The marriage of the child's biological parents after the child is born
Both parents signing and filing a voluntary statement of paternity form
Paternity legally declared by court order

Challenging the Presumption of Paternity in Puerto Rico

Under Puerto Rico law, if a mother or father wants to challenge the presumption of paternity, they should do so within six months of learning that there's an issue. If the legal father or mother voluntarily registers the child's parentage with the Office of Vital Statistics even after learning that there was a discrepancy, they no longer have grounds to challenge the child's paternity. If the child is already registered in the Vital Statistics Registry, either parent has one year from the date it is filed to challenge it.

In either case, if the child is a minor when the challenge is filed, the courts will put the interests of the child first when issuing a ruling — regardless of the child's biological paternity.
