DNA Test - Boynton Beach, Florida

Boynton Beach FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Boynton Beach, Florida 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Boynton Beach DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Boynton Beach, Florida - DNA Testing

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Boynton Beach, FL

Under Florida law, when two Boynton Beach parents are unmarried at the time of their child's birth, only the mother can be viewed as a legal guardian until paternity is established. Establishing paternity is used to legally declare a child's biological father and grant him paternal rights and responsibilities. The simplest way to establish paternity is through the completion of a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment after the child's birth.

If either parent is unwilling to establish paternity via the voluntary method, then they must do so through Palm Beach County Family Court. A court order paternity establishment typically includes the use of DNA paternity testing services to accurately determine the biological father. Once the father is determined, paternity can be established along with any accompanying child support order or custody agreements.

Paternity Laws and Regulations in Boynton Beach, FL

In the event DNA testing was not used to properly establish paternity and a parent later learns the legal father is not the biological one, Florida paternity law places limits on when and how they can rescind a paternity establishment. According to Florida Statute 742.10, a parent can request to have a paternity establishment removed up until 60 days after its filing. After this 60-day period, the establishment can only be challenged in court on the basis of fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact.

Paternity Programs in Boynton Beach, FL

The state of Florida offers the Putative Father Registry program as a way to protect unmarried fathers' legal paternal rights. If a Boynton Beach man believes he has fathered a child, he should register with the Florida Putative Father registry as soon as possible.

While this is not a method of establishing paternity, the unmarried biological father will be given notice if any legal action to adopt the child has been filed. If an individual is notified of such legal proceedings, he may have the ability to establish paternity and seek custodial rights of the child depending on the court's decision.
