Bayonne NJ DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bayonne, New Jersey 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.

Bayonne, New Jersey - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Bayonne, NJ

In Bayonne, New Jersey, establishing paternity is a relatively straightforward process when there are no doubts about the birth father. At the hospital after the child's birth, parents can sign the Certificate of Parentage. By signing this document, the alleged father becomes the legal father. Some parents may opt for DNA testing before signing the certificate to ensure certainty, while others may choose to go to court if there is a disagreement regarding paternity.

If parents decide to establish paternity through court, they can do so with the New Jersey Superior Court. In many cases, the judge will request a DNA test from the alleged father and the child. DNA testing, typically done through non-invasive cheek swabs, is a quick and painless method of establishing paternity that offers reliable results. If paternity is established, the judge can also determine custody, visitation, and child support.

Health Street offers DNA and paternity testing services in Bayonne, New Jersey, providing accurate, efficient, and painless testing options. With the use of cheek swabs, we can help individuals establish paternity or confirm biological relationships with confidence.

Bayonne, New Jersey: Benefits of establishing paternity

The father can gain the right to be on the birth certificate, to seek custody and visitation rights, and to participate in essential decisions about the child's life, especially regarding their education, health, or upbringing.
