DNA Test - Canton, Ohio

Canton OH DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Canton, Ohio 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.

Canton, Ohio - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Canton, OH

If you are an unmarried parent in Canton, Ohio, it is crucial to consider legally establishing paternity for your child. There are three available methods through which paternity can be established. The first option involves signing the Acknowledgement of the Paternity Affidavit, provided both parents have no uncertainties about the biological father's identity. Alternatively, you may independently choose to get DNA testing to confirm the alleged father's biological relationship to the child. If you choose to get DNA testing done on your own, note that at-home paternity tests are not usually accepted as evidence in court.

In cases where the above options are not viable due to strained relationships or other factors, seeking legal resolution may become necessary. Paternity can be determined through either the Juvenile Court or the Domestic Relations Court, with DNA testing often playing a significant role in the process. The court may request the alleged father and the child to undergo genetic testing to eliminate any doubts or concerns regarding paternity. Once the DNA test conclusively establishes paternity, the judge may consider this evidence in the paternity establishment.
