DNA Test - Carrollton, Georgia

Carrollton GA DNA Testing Locations

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

Carrollton, GA - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Carrollton law firm Met Lane explained paternity and legitimation for unmarried parents. "Paternity actions and legitimation are two legal processes by which unmarried parents can both establish and assert their parental rights," the law firm explained. According to Met Lane, paternity is the process of establishing a child's biological father, but establishing paternity alone won't give the father any legal rights. "Legitimation allows an unmarried father to establish his legal parental rights if his child were born out of wedlock," the law firm said. "Once legitimation is complete, a father can seek to establish his custody and visitation rights."

Establishing Paternity in Carrollton, GA

In Carrollton, married parents both have equal parental rights and responsibilities to the child. However, unmarried parents must establish paternity for a child to have a legal father. Until the child has a legal father, only the mother has physical and legal custody of the child. The easiest way for unmarried Carrollton parents to establish paternity is by signing a Paternity Acknowledgement, a voluntary form that's usually signed at the hospital when the child is born. Parents can sign the form later at the Carroll County Vital Records Office, located at 1004 Newnan Road in Carrollton. Parents can also establish paternity with a court order.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Carrollton, GA

Parents that do not sign the voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement form may require DNA testing to prove paternity. If either parent has any doubts about the child's biological father, the parent should request a DNA test before signing a Paternity Acknowledgement form. However, if parents sign the form and then have doubts about paternity, they can take a DNA test. Parents can contest a Paternity Acknowledgement within 60 days of signing the form with proof that the man is not the child's father, such as a DNA test or proof of infertility.
