Cortlandt Manor NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Cortlandt Manor, New York 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 Cortlandt Manor DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Local DNA Testing for Cortlandt Manor, NY

Experts Say...

Fuchs and Eichen is a family law firm that serves Cortlandt Manor, NY and Westchester County. The law firm explains the process of paternity and why establishing paternity is important. "Every child has a biological father, but if the parents are not married, the child has no legal father, and the biological father has no rights or responsibilities to the child. In order for the biological father to be the legal father, the parents must establish paternity for the child," they say. "By establishing paternity for the child, the parents are ensuring that the child has the same rights and benefits as children born to married parents."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Cortlandt Manor, NY

In Cortlandt Manor, NY, paternity may be established in two ways. If a man agrees that he is the father, both parents can sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity form, which is a voluntary, legal document. If a man denies that he is the father, a paternity petition may be filed through Family Court. If the alleged father denies paternity at the court hearing, DNA testing to prove paternity will be ordered.

Paternity must be established to receive child support, health insurance from the father, and for the child to receive other benefits, such as Veteran's benefits, social security benefits, and life insurance. Establishing paternity also allows for the father and child to develop a relationship, for the child to have access to medical records, and allows the father's name on the birth certificate.
