DNA Test - Broomfield, Colorado

Broomfield CO DNA Testing Locations

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

Broomfield, CO - DNA Testing

Broomfield Woman Finds Birth Mother After 50 Years

Broomfield resident Sarah Clarke Kleinhans has spent 50 years searching for her birth mother, and the two were finally reunited thanks to DNA testing. Kleinhans and her half-brother were born in Korea and were adopted when she was 14 months old. Her birth mother, Pok Cha, fell into a deep depression after having to give up her children, but she never stopped yearning to reconnect with them.

Kleinhans has spent years searching databases, hoping to find her birth family. When she entered her DNA information into one of the databases, she was shocked and thrilled to receive a message from a man who said, "I think I'm your nephew. My mother is your half-sister and my grandmother is your mother." Since then, Kleinhans has reconnected with her mother, half-sister, and a large extended family. She says they now speak for about an hour every few days.

Establishing Paternity in Colorado

Experts at the Broomfield-based Jorgensen Brownell & Pepin law firm explain that there are three primary ways to establish paternity in Colorado:

  1. Assumed and automatic - If a child's mother is married at the time of birth, the husband is assumed to be the child's father. Paternity is automatic unless the mother has a reason to object or another man alleges he is the child's biological father.
  2. Voluntary - When the mother is unmarried and both parties agree that they are the child's parents, they can sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP) document, which establishes legal paternity.
  3. Court order - If the parties do not agree regarding a child's paternity, it can be established by a court action and order.

Colorado Paternity Lawsuits: What You Need to Know

In Colorado, a paternity action can be filed in court to either prove or disprove a child's paternity. Experts at Broomfield-based Goldman Law explain that an "action for paternity" can be used to determine the identity of a child's legal father.

Establishing legal paternity can allow a mother to receive child support payments from the legal father, and the father can request visitation and/or custody rights. A lawsuit to disprove paternity could result in a man no longer being legally and financially responsible for the child. If this occurs, the man also loses all legal rights relating to the child.
