DNA Test – Bradenton, Florida

Bradenton FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Bradenton, 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

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

Information About DNA Testing In The City Of Bradenton, FL

Experts Say…

Brown & Brown, attorneys and counselors at law in Bradenton, FL, discuss how “tricky” it can be to obtain paternity rights for unmarried couples. “Paternity rights are not a given. Just because a father’s name is on a child’s birth certificate, or the mother has declared the father to be the biological father of the child does not give the father parental rights,” the law firm stated. “Often, through DNA testing and other means, proving paternity is necessary to show that a man is indeed the biological father of a child. Once recognized by the court, it is easier for the fathers to gain equal timesharing and be held accountable for his duties to the child.”

Syprett Meshad, a paternity lawyer serving Bradenton, FL, explains the steps following paternity establishment by saying, “Once paternity is established, all other matters which may be in controversy regarding the child, such as a parenting plan, timesharing schedule, child support, medical insurance, and, matters of like-kind or character, will need to be resolved, either by an agreement reached between the parties or judgment ultimately entered by the court.”

Former Clerk of Circuit Court and Comptroller in Manatee County, R.B. “Chips” Shore said, “Every child has the right to financial and medical support from both parents.”

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Bradenton, FL

If your child was born outside of marriage, he or she will not have a legal father until paternity is established. In Bradenton, FL, paternity can be established voluntarily by signing a Paternity Acknowledgment form. If there are doubts about who the child’s father is, the form should not be signed and either parent may request DNA testing to prove paternity. Establishing paternity can also be done through the court and DNA testing will likely be ordered to prove the child’s father.
