DNA Test – Cincinnati, Ohio

Cincinnati OH DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Cincinnati, Ohio clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Cincinnati DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Cincinnati, Ohio – DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Cincinnati, OH

When a child is born to two unmarried Cincinnati parents, both individuals will need to take the necessary steps to establish paternity for the father to gain legal parental rights over his child. Failure to establish paternity in the state of Ohio prevents either parent from seeking child support services, as the state cannot legally identify a biological father.

The simplest way to establish paternity in Cincinnati is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit. This legal form is often supplied by the hospital at the time of birth and must be signed and submitted by both parents to establish paternity. Bear in mind, this is a legally-binding document and must only be completed if there is zero uncertainty in the child’s paternity or if DNA paternity testing has been completed to accurately determine the biological father.

Dealing With Paternity Uncertainty in Cincinnati, OH

When a Cincinnati child is born, not always will the mother have full confidence in who the child’s biological father is to successfully establish paternity. Moving to quickly establish legal paternity with a man who is potentially not the child’s biological father can cause complications if it is later discovered he is not the biological father and seeks the removal of child support obligations.

If there is any doubt in a child’s paternity, the parents must conduct DNA paternity testing. If a parent is having a hard time getting the other parent to agree to establish paternity or undergo DNA paternity testing, a petition must be filed through a Hamilton County Family Court. From here, a judge can mandate DNA testing to effectively establish legal paternity.

Experts in Cincinnati, OH Say…

By establishing paternity in the state of Ohio, a father can take further legal action in declaring his paternal rights. According to Cincinnati family law attorney Phyllis Bossin, once paternity is established by court order, the father may petition the court to be designated as the residential parent and legal custodian of the child or to have shared parenting or parenting time with the child. Under Ohio Revised Code 3109.04, the court will determine what is in the best interests of the child and develop a custody agreement that benefits their well-being.
