DNA Testing Conyers GA

Conyers GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Conyers GA 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 Conyers DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Facts about DNA Testing in Conyers GA

Establishing Paternity in Conyers

According to Conyers family law firm M. Qader A. Baig & Associates, LLC, in the state of Georgia an "order of legitimation"must be obtained before an unmarried man is presumed to be the father of a child. Contrary to popular belief, adding a man's name to a child's birth certificate does not legally establish paternity. Unmarried parents who wish to resolve child support, custody, and visitation rights must first go through a legal process.

When both parents agree to the paternity of the child, the process of obtaining an order of legitimation is simple. However, if either party challenges the paternity, then a DNA paternity test will be required. In cases where a man and woman are married at the time of a child's birth, the man is assumed to be the child's legal father.

Challenging Paternity During Marriage

Meriwether & Tharp, a divorce team serving Conyers and surrounding areas, states that although paternity testing during divorce proceedings isn't common, sometimes the issue does arise. One such incident occurred when the Georgia Court of Appeals ruled on the 2010 case Williamson v. Williamson.

In this case, a woman who was divorcing her husband requested a paternity test, alleging that the husband was not the biological father of their child. The husband opposed the request. The courts ruled in his favor, stating that the paternity test was not "in the child's best interest."

The appeals court upheld this, based on the Georgia law stating that all children born during a marriage are deemed to be legitimate. The court went on to say: "[t]he public policy favoring the presumption of a child's legitimacy is one of the most firmly-established and persuasive precepts known in law." To this date, if a mother in Georgia wants to challenge her husband's paternity (delegitimizing the child) and the father objects, she must first show that doing so is in the best interests of the child. Otherwise, the request will be denied.
