Bellevue NE DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bellevue, Nebraska 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)

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.

Bellevue, Nebraska - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Bellevue, NE

In Bellevue, Nebraska, unmarried fathers looking to establish their rights and responsibilities towards their children must establish paternity. Paternity gives the child a legal father and can provide benefits for all parties involved.

The easiest way of establishing paternity in Bellevue is by signing the Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) at the hospital once the baby is born. When both parents sign the document, they need to ensure it is notarized, and then they need to file it with DHHS Vital Records Management to become official. Hospital staff are usually able to assist with this process. However, if there are any doubts or disagreements about paternity, it is important not to sign an AOP. Remember that it is a legally binding document with the same effect as a court order.

Alternatively, some people establish paternity through court proceedings. This usually happens in cases where either parent disagrees with paternity, or if one party is not cooperative. When the court is involved, the judge often orders genetic testing, a reliable and quick method of proving whether the alleged father is related to the child. If the judge establishes paternity, other matters like custody, visitation, or child support can also be established.

Bellevue, Nebraska: Reasons to establish paternity

When parents establish paternity, they can share rights and responsibilities. All parties can benefit from legal paternity. For example:

For the father, establishing paternity gives him legal rights to seek custody or visitation time through the court.
For the mother, establishing paternity could mean sharing the financial responsibilities of raising the child with the father, and making joint decisions about the child's upbringing.
For the child, legal paternity can have many positive impacts. The child can have both parents' names on the birth certificate, develop a stronger sense of identity, and gain rights to inheritance, insurance, and more.
