Cartersville GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Cartersville, 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.

Establishing Paternity in Cartersville, GA

If two Cartersville parents are not married at the time of their child's birth, paternity establishment must be completed for the biological father to gain legal rights over the child and have his name placed on the birth certificate. A paternity establishment will also be necessary if the parents are separated and either wishes to seek monthly child support payments, as the state can only request payment from legal guardians.

The simplest way to establish paternity in Cartersville is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity. This form can be accessed at the hospital following a child's birth or at a later date through a Bartow County Child Support Services office location. If either parent does not agree to establish paternity, the other must instead seek assistance through Bartow County Family Court.

Importance of DNA Paternity Testing in Cartersville, GA

Because Cartersville parents can establish paternity completely voluntarily, it's important to have full confidence in a child's paternity before moving forward. Failure to accurately determine paternity through the use of DNA testing can result in a Cartersville man gaining legal rights and responsibilities for a child that is simply not his.

If parents learn at a later date that the previously presumed father is not the biological father, it can be quite difficult in court to remove the paternity establishment along with any child support obligations. Because they are the legally designated father, a man who learns he's not the biological father will still be required to pay child support obligations until paternity is disestablished.

Experts in Cartersville, GA Say…

In situations where a former partner is keeping a child away from their parent and denying them their custodial rights, it's important to take action as soon as possible. According to Cartersville family law attorney Christina Stahl, it's crucial for a father to establish paternity when possible, to verify his status as the biological father. To do so, the presumed father may need to file a petition to establish paternity in court, where a judge can issue a court-ordered DNA test.
