Carrollton TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Carrollton, Texas 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.

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.

Establishing paternity in Carrollton, TX

Texans can establish paternity by completing and filing an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). However, an AOP-certified entity must be present. If you need assistance with AOP, or if the other parent is not present because of living in a different state or city or being in the military, you can also submit it online. Do not sign the AOP if you have any concerns about paternity or if you are unsure whether you are the biological father.

Sometimes, the father and mother disagree about paternity or want to ensure the alleged father is the biological father. Parents can file a petition asking the court to establish paternity. The court often orders a paternity test. The DNA test is straightforward. The father and the child have their cheeks swabbed, and the DNA test can determine whether the man is the biological father with 99 percent accuracy.

Carrollton, Texas: Benefits of establishing paternity

For unmarried parents, it is essential to establish paternity so that their children receive benefits such as social security, veteran's benefits, military benefits, health care coverage, and inheritance. If the father is not married to the mother, he does not have custody rights, and the mother does not have a legal right for child support.

Many children who do not know both of their parents lack knowledge about the family's medical history. Establishing paternity is essential for children to build a healthy bond with both parents and to have all the legal rights mentioned above.

Denial of paternity in Carrollton, TX

If the child is born within 300 days of the parents divorcing or the mother marrying somebody who is not the biological father, the ex-husband is considered a legal father. However, he can sign a Denial of Paternity as long as the mother agrees that the presumed father is not the biological father and signs the document too. The biological father must also sign it, and then the document can be filed and accepted.

If any party does not cooperate, the court can establish paternity with DNA testing.
