Bolingbrook IL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bolingbrook, 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 Bolingbrook DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Establishing paternity in Bolingbrook, IL

If parents are not married when the baby is born, they must legally establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. Paternity rights are often established in Bolingbrook hospitals after the child is born. Parents can sign the Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity (VAP) form. It is important to note that a VAP is a legal document, and parents should be in agreement with each other before signing.

In cases where there are doubts or disagreements regarding paternity, parents often opt to establish paternity through the court system. In court, judges commonly order a DNA test for both the alleged father and the child. This DNA test is a reliable and efficient method of determining paternity, providing the judge with conclusive laboratory results to make informed decisions. Once paternity is established, the judge can further address matters such as child support, custody, and visitation hours if necessary.

Bolingbrook, Illinois: Reasons to establish paternity

Establishing paternity in Bolingbrook, Illinois brings numerous advantages, particularly for the child involved. By establishing paternity, the child can gain essential rights like:

By establishing paternity, parents safeguard their child's future and promote stability in their lives. For example, parents can share rights and responsibilities, including financially and emotionally supporting the child, sharing custody, having visitation rights, and making important decisions about their upbringing.
