DNA Test – College Station, Texas

College Station TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our College Station, Texas 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:

perm_identity
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
perm_identity
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 College Station DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Maintaining Parental Rights in College Station, TX

Under Texas law, when a married College Station couple has a child, the husband is automatically granted legal rights over the child as it is assumed he is the biological father. For an unmarried father to hold and maintain parental rights over his child, both parents will need to legally establish paternity with the state of Texas.

To establish paternity, a couple must complete and file an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). An opportunity to complete this form will first be presented at the hospital following the child’s birth. However, it can be completed at a later date through a Brazos County Certified AOP entity. If a mother doesn’t agree to complete an AOP with the child’s father, it’s recommended he file a petition with Brazos County Family Court. From here, a judge can request court-ordered DNA testing to confirm and enforce the father’s paternity.

Paternity Programs in College Station, TX

The state of Texas developed the Paternity Registry program to protect the parental rights of a man who believes he has fathered a child. By completing and submitting a Notice of Intent to Claim Paternity with the Texas Vital Statistics Unit before or within 31 days of a child’s birth, a man’s parental rights are protected in the event of an adoption.

Whether he has no ongoing relationship with the mother or she doesn’t agree he is the father, this registry will notify the man of any adoptive actions placed over his presumed child. Bear in mind that submitting to this registry does not establish paternity nor place your name on the child’s birth certificate.

Experts in College Station, TX Say…

Not always after a paternity establishment will two College Station, TX parents be able to construct a custody agreement without dispute. If you and your child’s mother or father cannot settle on a fair plan that is healthy and stable for the child, it’s highly recommended to seek legal assistance in court to establish a parenting plan.

According to College Station Family Law Attorney Jana Foreman, numerous factors will be examined when developing a custody agreement. This includes the level of capability towards raising the child, stability of current home settings, and specific needs of the child. Once these factors and more are considered, a Brazos County Family Court Judge will construct and mandate a plan that works best towards the wellbeing of the child.
