DNA Test – Carrollton, Texas

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.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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.

Presumption of Paternity in Carrollton, TX

Texas law states that if any of the following circumstances apply, a man is presumed to be a child’s legal father:

arrow_forward
The man is married to the child’s mother at the time the child is born
arrow_forward
The man was married to the child’s mother in the 301 days prior to the child’s birth
arrow_forward
The man married the mother after the child was born and voluntarily asserted paternity
arrow_forward
If any of the above apply, paternity is presumed even if the validity of the marriage is later challenged

In any of the above cases, the man is automatically given all the rights and responsibilities that come with paternity, and no further action is required.

Establishing Paternity of Children Born to Unwed Mothers

When a child is born to an unmarried mother, additional steps must be taken to establish legal paternity. According to Carrollwood attorneys at The Barbosa Law Firm, a man can claim paternity by signing a child’s birth certificate at the time of birth. If this isn’t done, he can file a notice of intent to claim paternity with the Texas Department of State Health Services. If the mother denies a man’s paternity claim, the case will go to Texas court. Each side may present evidence and the courts will determine whether the man is deemed the child’s legal father. Legal paternity can also be established if both the child’s mother and father sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP).

Termination of Mistaken Paternity

What happens if a man is ordered to pay child support for a child that isn’t biologically his? According to the Nacol Law Firm, which serves Carrollton and the surrounding area, if a man finds that he is not the biological father of a child, he has one year from the date he is made aware of the circumstances to file a petition with the courts. He may then take a DNA test. If it’s found that he is not the child’s biological father, the courts may issue an order that terminates the parental relationship and eliminates the man’s obligation for future child support.
