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

Chino Hills, California - DNA Testing

Why Establish Paternity in Chino Hills, CA?

Establishing paternity in the state of California provides a Chino Hills father who is not married at the time of birth with parental rights over his child. The establishment process is important for parents who are not married at the time of their child's birth as the state law can only identify the mother as a legal parent without the presence of a legally declared husband.

Establishing paternity is also extremely beneficial for the well-being of a Chino Hills child. A paternity establishment will provide the child with two legal guardians, which opens the door for him or her to receive various parent-provided benefits. Such benefits can include health insurance, inheritance opportunities, and military benefits.

Paternity Programs in Chino Hills, CA

Chino Hill parents in need of establishing paternity can seek the assistance of the California Parentage Opportunity Program (POP) as a cost-effective and simple way of completing this process. Through the POP program, Chino Hills parents can sign a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP) form at the hospital where the child was born or through San Bernardino County Child Support Services.

It's important to keep in mind that by establishing paternity, you are legally declaring a child's biological and legal father. Acting upon presumption and establishing paternity without the use of DNA testing could result in a parent later learning of mistaken paternity. Regardless of the lack of genetic connection, the legally declared father will still be held responsible for any child support obligations up until the establishment is rescinded.

Challenging a Declaration of Paternity in Chino Hills, CA

For instances in which a Chino Hills presumed father later learns he is actually not the biological father of a child, there are some legal points to consider. Demonstrating the importance of DNA testing, California law only allows an individual to rescind an acknowledgment of paternity form within 60 days of its filing. After this, the Chino Hills man will only have two years from the date of filing to challenge it in court, where he will need to demonstrate proof of fraud, mistake, or evidence that he was forced to sign it.
