DNA Test - Cedar Park, Texas

Cedar Park TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Cedar Park, 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:

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 Cedar Park DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Cedar Park, Texas - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Cedar Park, TX

Unwed parents from Cedar Park, Texas, can establish paternity in two ways:

  1. They can voluntarily sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP), or
  2. they can go to court.

Generally, parents with no reason to doubt paternity sign the AOP at the hospital after the baby is born. They must work with an AOP-certified entity to complete the form because the Office of the Attorney General has trained them. For all Texans who need help establishing paternity, there is the AOP Hotline they can call or submit their requests online. Once paternity is established, both parents can have the same rights and responsibilities toward the child. They can support the child emotionally and financially and make important decisions regarding the child's life together.

Another option is going to court. Parents usually do that if they do not cooperate or have reasonable doubts about paternity. The court usually requests DNA testing to prove paternity. Suppose the alleged father is the biological father; the judge can establish paternity.

Health Street offers reliable and accurate DNA testing services in Cedar Park, Texas. Whether you need a paternity test for legal purposes or peace of mind, Health Street provides various testing options to meet your needs.

Cedar Park, Texas: Mistaken Paternity

In Texas, courts can terminate the parent-child relationship if there is mistaken paternity. However, a man questioning paternity must file a petition asking the court to terminate it. The court will hold a pretrial hearing to decide whether the petition meets the legal requirements of the case to move forward with it. If yes, the father and child must undergo DNA tests. Suppose the DNA testing proves that the legal father is not the biological father; the court can terminate their relationship and the child support obligations. The man still must pay child support up to the termination date.
