DNA Test – Clearwater, Florida

Clearwater FL DNA Testing Locations

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

Clearwater, Florida – DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Clearwater, FL

Unmarried parents must take specific steps to establish paternity in Clearwater, whereas the father is automatically considered the legal father of a child born to married parents. In Florida, you can establish paternity in two ways. Parents can voluntarily sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP), but this should only be done if they agree about who the biological father is. If they are unsure or disagree about paternity, they should file a civil petition to establish it.

In that case, the court will ask the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test. DNA testing is a simple and reliable method of determining paternity. Once the results are back, the judge can decide whether to establish paternity. Sometimes, the alleged father is not cooperative and does not attend the court hearing. If that happens, the judge can still name him the child’s legal father. Once the paternity is established, parents can also establish custody, visitation, and child support if necessary.

Clearwater, Florida: Benefits of establishing paternity

Establishing paternity can provide a child with multiple benefits. Additionally, once the father becomes the legal father, both parents can share the same rights and responsibilities towards the child unless otherwise determined in court.

Here are some of the benefits a child can gain by establishing paternity:

Access to family medical history from both sides
Better sense of identity
Getting the father’s name on the birth certificate
Child and medical support from both parents
Health and life insurance
If applicable, Social Security, veterans benefits, and military allowances
The right to inherit from both parents

Multiple studies have shown that children who have a good relationship with both parents have a higher chance of living a better life financially and emotionally. They can perform better in school, make healthier lifestyle choices, and be more likely to pursue higher education.
