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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests

DNA Testing Facts – Bayonne, NJ

Establishing Paternity in Bayonne, NJ

For unmarried Bayonne parents who need to establish legal paternity in the state of New Jersey, the Paternity Opportunity Program (POP) provides an easy method without hassle to either party. Establishing paternity is important for both parents and their child, as it creates a legal relationship between the father and child. Plus, it provides either parent with the ability to seek child support services.

Under the New Jersey Paternity Opportunity Program, all hospitals and birthing facilities will present parents with the opportunity to complete a Certificate of Parentage form after birth. This legal document declares the presumed father to be the child’s legal parent, allowing his name to be placed on the birth certificate. This form can also be completed at a later date through a Hudson County Registrar or Welfare Agency office location.

Determining Paternity in Bayonne, NJ

Following the birth of a child, a Bayonne mother may not have full confidence in who her child’s biological father is. Before acting on presumption and signing a Certificate of Parentage form to establish legal paternity in the state of New Jersey, it’s highly recommended you seek DNA testing to accurately confirm a child’s paternity. If both parents agree to DNA testing, the simplest way to go about it is by requesting a test through a Hudson County Welfare Agency office.

If the presumed father does not agree to submit to DNA testing, a paternity petition will need to be filed through Hudson County Family Court. Doing so will allow a judge to issue a summons for the presumed father to submit to court-ordered DNA testing. If test results do conclude that the presumed father is the biological father, then paternity will be legally established and monthly child support services can be applied for.

Experts in Bayonne, NJ Say…

Following the establishment of paternity, two Bayonne parents may need to establish a custody agreement to provide the child adequate time with both parents. If two parents cannot settle on an agreement themselves that works best towards the wellbeing of a child, the two may need to establish a legal agreement in court. According to Bayonne Family Law Attorney Judith Bielan, New Jersey courts consider many factors when determining custody. This includes specific needs of the child(ren), parents’ ability to cooperate and communicate, and the stability of each home environment.
