DNA Test - Buena Park, California

Buena Park CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Buena Park, California clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Buena Park DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Buena Park, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Buena Park, CA

If parents from Buena Park, California, are married, there is no need to establish paternity. California automatically assumes that the husband is the biological father of the child. However, unwed parents must establish paternity to have the same rights and responsibilities toward their children. Parents can sign the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP) to establish paternity voluntarily, but it is important to note that this is a legally binding form that declares the father. A VDOP should only be signed if both parents are confident in the biological father's identity. The VDOP can usually be signed in the hospital after the child's birth, and the hospital staff can often help with the process.

However, sometimes parents may need clarification, or they have disagreements about the biological father. In that case, they can ask the judge to establish paternity. The judge will order a paternity test for the alleged father and the child to prove the child-father relationship. If the DNA test returns positive, the judge may consider these results while determining custody, visitation hours, and child support.

At-home paternity test kits are also commonly used in Buena Park for peace of mind. While the paternity test results for an at-home DNA test are just as accurate as a lab test, it is important to note that the results are not admissible in a court of law. Home DNA paternity tests are recommended only for the parents' information and peace of mind. For legal paternity tests, try Health Street's conveniently located Buena Park clinic on Crescent Avenue.

Buena Park, California: Disputing parentage

Anyone can dispute parentage if it has not been established yet. For example, if a man is told he is the father but disagrees, he can ask for a DNA test to prove paternity. In same-sex partnerships, the woman who did not give birth and was served with a Petition to Establish Parental Relationship can dispute it if she never intended to become the child's mother.

Parental laws are complex and can be complicated. Especially if the paternity has already been established, challenging it can be difficult. Each situation can differ, and many parents involve the help of a family lawyer.
