DNA Testing Charlotte NC


Types of DNA Tests at our Charlotte NC clinics:

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

Facts about DNA Testing in Charlotte NC


DNA Statistics in Charlotte

In 1968, Charlotte had a single parenthood percentage of 13 percent, with 12 of those 13 being single mothers. As of 2010, the single parenthood rating is 25 percent, with 21 percent of them being single mothers. With that many single mothers, paternity testing has become necessary, so that these hard working people can get support from the men that need to give it. Health Street has recently completed a nationwide DNA study, with North Carolina being a total of about 3 percent of the sample size. It was found that the majority of all DNA tests were paternity, with 41 percent of all DNA tests done by Health Street being strictly paternity.

The Stories of Charlotte

Quotes from DNA StudyCharlotte Residents Said:
"The person that I wanted to be tested with did not want to cooperate in the process. They eventually passed away."

"The belief/fear that this is simply my overactive imagination at work and the humiliation it could cause."

"Concerns about privacy."
About this Study: Health Street surveyed Charlotte residents about the personal side of DNA testing.

Custody Norms of Charlotte

When deciding the visitation rights of the secondary caretakers in Charlotte, Family Courts tend to give very specific instructions on how to regulate it. This regulation, for the most part, is decided through a court order, which also comes with some specific conditions. The term "visitation" is only used when the time is limited, not when it comes to how much time is given to the primary caretaker. A custody order will only ever be given out if the parents cannot hash it out personally. Going in line with that, custody orders also do not have to be given out to non-parents, as long as the parents consent to giving the child to the stated non-parent.
