DNA Test – Buena Park, California

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.

Local DNA Stories
In 2018, an Orange County man finally found his long-lost father after almost a lifetime of searching for him.
Hugh Nguyen, of Orange County, was born during the Vietnam War. He always believed that his father was an American G.I. that was killed in combat. Nguyen and the rest of his family escaped and made it to the United States, but he never quit wondering about his father.
Nguyen decided to use DNA testing. Almost two years later he learned he had a second cousin who began asking questions to her family. She called Roy Patterson of Tennessee and asked if he had a son born in Vietnam. Patterson decided to use DNA testing as well.
The father and son were able to find each other thanks to DNA testing. The results showed Patterson as 99.99995 percent Nguyen’s father.
Nguyen said, “I feel complete. Now I feel I can move on with the next chapter in my life.”
Orange County Family Law Associates serves Buena Park, CA and surrounding areas. They explain the importance of establishing paternity by saying, “Paternity law is the procedure to establish legal parentage of an unmarried father. Either a mother or father can file a paternity suit to establish parentage. Paternity affects many aspects of family law, including child custody, child support, and visitation rights. However, without establishing legal paternity, unmarried fathers have no rights in relation to the child and there will be no child support entered.”
