DNA Test - Brick, New Jersey

Brick NJ DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Brick, New Jersey 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 Brick DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Brick, New Jersey - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Bronzino Law Firm, serving Brick, NJ, explains that paternity must be established for fathers and mothers to have parenting rights. According to the law firm, "Believing or even knowing that someone is the father of a child does not entitle a man to the legal rights and responsibilities of a father. Legal paternity must first be established in order to be granted rights as a father." The law firm continues, "Pursuant to New Jersey state law, both mothers and fathers share equal legal rights as parents." "The firm explains that this is true for issues like custody and child support. "However, unlike mothers who are listed on the child's birth certificate by default, fathers must be granted legal paternity to enjoy these legal rights and responsibilities." There are several different methods that can be used to achieve this.

Establishing Paternity in Brick, NJ

Paternity means fatherhood, and unmarried parents in Brick, NJ must establish paternity for a biological father to become the child's legal father. Establishing paternity is also the only way a Brick father can have his name added to the birth certificate. Paternity also provides many benefits for the child, like developing emotional bonds with both parents, financial support, and other available benefits. The easiest way Brick parents can establish paternity is by submitting a Certificate of Parentage form at the hospital when a child is born. If parents cannot agree to sign the voluntary form, they can establish paternity in court.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Brick, NJ

If either parent questions paternity or the alleged father has doubts about being the child's biological father, he can request DNA testing to prove paternity. Fathers who doubt their paternity should not sign a Certificate of Parentage before taking a DNA test. Once paternity is established, the father's name will be added to the birth certificate and he obtains legal parental rights.
