DNA Test – Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte NC DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Charlotte, North Carolina 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 Charlotte DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Charlotte, North Carolina – DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Charlotte, NC

Establishing paternity is essential for a child to prosper from the benefits of both parents. After paternity has been established, the child can access the father’s medical history and potentially get Social Security, insurance, or military benefits (if applicable).

Based on the law in Charlotte, North Carolina, paternity must be established before a child support order. Fathers can acknowledge paternity by signing a voluntary acknowledgment, or the court can order a DNA test to prove it.

The easiest way of establishing paternity, if both parents agree, is when a child is born at the hospital. However, the father must be present and provide all necessary information so his name can be placed on the Affidavit of Parentage.

If there are any doubts regarding paternity, DNA testing is recommended. The most common method is to swab the inside of the cheek for the father and child, although other legal DNA tests are available if the father can not have his cheek swabbed. The results can then be presented as evidence in the court to establish paternity.

DNA test links sisters who never met but lived close to each other

Jen Frantz was enjoying her vacation when suddenly she got a text message from Janine Dzyubanny saying they might be sisters. Frantz was 43 years old when she found out. Her parents looked nothing like her, so she always knew they were not her biological parents. She was adopted at just one year old, and her birth parents were from South Korea. Thanks to DNA testing, she now knew she had a biological sister.

Janine was adopted when she was just five months old. The sisters decided to take a DNA test to learn more about their medical history, but they never expected to find a sibling! They started to text and realized they had so much more in common. They even found out they lived just half an hour away from each other, even though they grew up in different states.

They decided to meet, and it was a very emotional and happy moment for both of them. Since then, Jen and Janine have met at least once a week and do not want to miss out more than they already have.
