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

Clinton Township, Michigan – DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Clinton Township, MI

Unmarried parents from Clinton Township, Michigan, can establish paternity in two ways. If both parents are sure about paternity and have no doubts that the alleged father is the biological father, they can sign a voluntary Affidavit of Parentage form. The form is often available for parents to sign at the hospital when the baby is born, but they can also do it later.

Sometimes, parents disagree about paternity or are unsure whether the man is the biological father. In that case, they can go to court and let the judge establish paternity. The judge often asks the alleged father and child to take a DNA test to prove their relationship. If the DNA test shows they are related, the judge may consider this while establishing paternity. Afterward, parents can establish visitation rights, custody, and child support if necessary.

Clinton Township, Michigan: Benefits of establishing paternity

As soon as parents from Clinton Township, Michigan, establish paternity, the child can gain multiple benefits.

Some of the benefits for the child can include:

Establishing paternity is also beneficial for parents. Once the father becomes a legal parent, they can share rights and responsibilities for their child. The father can also participate in important decisions about the child’s upbringing, education, or health. Before paternity is established, the father has no legal right to participate in such decisions. If the mother considered giving the child up for adoption, she would need to consult the father first.
