DNA Test – Center Line, Michigan

Center Line MI DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Center Line, Michigan 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.

Our Center Line DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

DNA Paternity Testing – Center Line, MI

The Michigan Paternity Act

When a child is born to unmarried parents, steps must be taken to establish legal paternity. The easiest way to do this is through the Michigan Paternity Act. This allows the child’s mother, the possible father, or the Department of Human Services to initiate an action for paternity. This is done by establishing a complaint with the Circuit Court in the Family Division in the appropriate county. In Macomb County, this would be the 16th Judicial Court, located at 40 N Main, Mount Clemens, MI 48043.

How to Voluntarily Establish Paternity in Center Line

There are several ways to establish paternity when a child is born out of wedlock. The first, and easiest, is to add the father’s name to the birth certificate at the hospital when the child is born. This is a free service if it’s done before the hospital files the birth certificate. After that, it’s still free to establish paternity but there is a charge for adding the father’s name to the birth certificate.

If paternity is not established at the hospital, a couple in Macomb County can also obtain a Voluntary Affidavit of Paternity at the Macomb County Health and Human Services Office (locations in Mt. Clemens, Sterling Heights, and Warren), or Macomb County Registrar’s Office (120 N Main St, Mt Clemens, MI 48043). They can also go online and download the form.

DNA Paternity Testing In Macomb County

When both parties don’t agree about a child’s paternity, a DNA test will be required. According to Macomb County paternity attorney Kelly & Kelly, a DNA blood test can be either voluntary or court-ordered. If one party refuses to submit to a DNA test, the court system may automatically rule against the refusing party.

If a man is falsely accused of being a child’s father, a DNA test can exclude him with 99% probability. Once a man takes a test, he will either be excluded or deemed highly likely to be the child’s biological father. In most cases, this is enough for the man to admit paternity. If not, the next step is a court case, where the blood test will become admissible evidence.
