DNA Test – Brooklyn, New York

Brooklyn NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Brooklyn, New York 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:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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 Brooklyn DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Brooklyn, NY: Challenging paternity

As long as the mother is married when the baby is born, her husband is considered to be the father. Although there may be some situations when the mother conceived the child with another man, her husband would still be considered the legal father of this child in Brooklyn, NY even if he may not be a biological father.

In this situation, either party may choose to challenge paternity by filling out a paternity petition. This form will be served to the other party with a summons for the court case. The judge may then make a ruling concerning his relationship to the child.

A DNA test must be performed to establish paternity. Based on the DNA test results, the father can admit or deny paternity. If the parties can not agree in regards to paternity, there will be another hearing.

Seeking Child Support Services in Brooklyn, NY

Once paternity is established, parents can work with OCSS Customer Service staff to get child support guidelines. Parties can also decide to only go through court but that can take longer.

Each party can request to modify the order, but when the order is established the obligation amount is monitored and it is ensured that the payment is happening according to the order.
