DNA Test - Bloomington, Minnesota

Bloomington MN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bloomington, Minnesota 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.

Our Bloomington DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Bloomington, Minnesota - DNA Testing

Reasons to Establish Parentage in Bloomington, MN

When two unmarried Bloomington parents have a child, Minnesota law will only grant the mother parental rights over the newborn. This is because the state cannot automatically assume any man beyond a legal husband to be a child's biological father. The two will need to establish parentage in order for the father to receive his parental rights and responsibilities over the child.

By establishing parentage, a Bloomington man can have his name placed on the child's birth certificate to be legally recognized as the child's biological father. Once parentage is established, either Bloomington parent then has the ability to seek child support, custody, or visitation in Minnesota court if both parents cannot decide on such agreements themselves.

Using DNA Testing Services to Help Establish Parentage in Bloomington, MN

Establishing parentage is the legal process two unmarried Minnesota parents must take to declare the biological father of their child and provide the father with his parental rights and responsibilities. Due to the legal bond this process creates, it's important for parents to first be 100% positive in a paternity claim before moving forward with an establishment.

Failing to determine a child's biological father using DNA testing could result in a Bloomington man facing child support obligations for a child that is not biologically his, as well as complications later on in Hennepin County Family Court when looking to revoke the establishment. Once DNA testing identifies the biological father, parentage should be established as soon as possible so as to not delay child support payments and visitation.

Methods of Establishing Parentage in Bloomington, MN

In the state of Minnesota, two parents may establish parentage using one of two procedures. The simplest and quickest method of establishing parentage is by completing a Minnesota Voluntary Recognition of Parentage form. This form is completely optional and must be signed by both parents and submitted to the Minnesota Office of Vital Records for proper filing.

For instances where a parent denies a paternity claim or simply refuses to sign the form, then a petition to establish parentage will need to be made through Hennepin County Family Court. During this process, a judge will require that the mother and presumed father complete the necessary steps to establish parentage, likely including the use of DNA paternity testing. If the birth father is identified, parentage can be properly established.
