DNA Test - Bloomington, Illinois

Bloomington IL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bloomington, Illinois clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. Accurate results for DNA paternity testing with 99.99% confidence or greater take about a week.

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Bloomington DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

DNA Testing Bloomington IL

Establishing paternity in Bloomington, IL

Establishing paternity means determining the legal relationship between the father and the child. If parents are married, it is unnecessary to do so because the husband is automatically considered the legal father, but unmarried parents should consider establishing paternity. In Bloomington, Illinois, they can complete the Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP) and go to court or child support services.

Usually, when parents have no doubts about who is the biological father they sign and file the VAP right after the child is born. It is possible to do this at the hospital, where the staff can help with the process, or do it later. Sometimes, there are situations where the mother or alleged father may question who the biological father is. In that case, many people choose to get the court involved. The judge will usually ask the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test. If the paternity test results return positive, the court may be more likely to establish the man as the legal father.

Bloomington, Illinois: Benefits of establishing paternity

When parents establish paternity, they can share rights and responsibilities toward the child. Both parents can be responsible for supporting the child emotionally and financially, and both can participate in making important decisions about their child's life regarding education, religious upbringing, or health. Children who know both of their parents can build a better bond with them, and studies show that having a healthy relationship with both parents can increase their chances of success later on. After establishing legal paternity, the mother must also consult the father before putting the child up for adoption.

The child can receive some important benefits from legal paternity, too. Some of these benefits can include:

Access to medical histories of both sides of the families
Better sense of identity
The right to inherit
Financial support
Social Security and medical insurance
Veterans and disability rights, if applicable
