DNA Test - Compton, California

Compton CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Compton, California 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.

Compton, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Compton, CA

Establishing paternity means becoming a legal parent to the child. If parents are married, it is not necessary to establish paternity because the husband is automatically considered the legal father. However, unwed parents should consider establishing paternity. In Compton, California, parents can establish paternity by signing a voluntary declaration of parentage or going to court.

If parents have no doubts about the biological father, they can sign the voluntary declaration of parentage at the hospital once the child is born. However, parents should not sign this form if they are still determining who the biological father is.

If parents disagree about paternity, they often go to court instead. The judge will likely order a DNA test for the alleged father and the child, proving whether they are related. The DNA test is a quick and painless way of determining the father-child relationship, usually performed by a simple cheek swab. After the judge receives the DNA test results, the evidence could influence the decision of legal paternity.

Compton, California: Disputing paternity

Compton paternity can be disputed if it has not yet been legally established. The same goes for same-sex relationships. In this case, if someone did not intend to become the child's mother or father, it is possible to dispute parentage in California.

However, parentage laws can be very complex, especially if paternity has already been established, so it is crucial to refrain from signing any paternity establishment documents if either party is uncertain. Sometimes, even if the DNA test proves the man is not the biological father, the law can still declare him as the legal father. Many parents contact a family law facilitator to advise them of the next steps.
