Carmel IN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Carmel, Indiana 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:

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 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 Carmel DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Carmel, Indiana - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

CGRB Law Firm in Carmel, IN, explains mothers' and fathers' paternity rights. "If you are found to be the father, you will be granted the same parental rights as any father, including visitation and custody rights," the law firm states. "You will also be obligated to pay the mother child support or if you have custody, she will be ordered to pay child support to you." They also explain that unmarried mothers could choose not to establish paternity. "If the mother of the child is not married to the father when the child is born and does not wish for the father to be in the child's life, she does not have to file for paternity," the lawyers say. "The father will not be obligated to pay child support, however."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Carmel, IN

Establishing paternity allows the parents to obtain child support, visitation, and custody rights. Paternity also benefits the child by allowing access to medical records from both sides of the family and providing certain benefits, inheritance rights, social security benefits, veteran's benefits, health insurance and life insurance. When a child is born to unmarried parents, paternity must be established. Parents can establish paternity by signing a Paternity Affidavit. In some cases, DNA testing is necessary to prove paternity. Fathers in Carmel, Indiana have the right to know that they are the biological father of their child. If two parents establish paternity in court, the court may order DNA testing to prove that the alleged father is the biological father.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity in Carmel, IN

Establishing paternity provides many benefits to both parents and children, in addition to those already mentioned. When the child has a legal father, they gain access to medical information from both families, the right to financial support from both parents, and the ability to have close relationships with their mother and their father. Identifying the biological father gives the mother the ability to seek child support and the father the right to request visitation or custody.
