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

Establishing paternity in Costa Mesa, California
Paternity must be established when parents are not married and have a child together. Paternity can be established when the child is born at the hospital by signing a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity.
If the alleged father disagrees with being the biological father or the mother is unsure who the biological father is, it is best to go to court. The alleged father and the child will usually take a DNA test to recognize their relationship, and the judge can establish paternity using the DNA test results. Once the paternity is determined, the judge can also establish child support, health insurance for the child, custody, visitation, and other payments regarding court costs, genetic testing, or attorney’s fees.
Regardless of the situation between the alleged father and the mother, the man has every right to request a DNA test if he has doubts about paternity.
Costa Mesa, California: Presumed paternity
California’s law is particular about the circumstances that the man will be presumed as the father. In the following cases, the man may be presumed as the biological father:
These conditions can also apply to same-sex parents and those in registered domestic partnerships after January 2005. Parents who do not fall under these conditions may have to sign a VDP or go to court and take a DNA test to establish paternity, but it is best to seek the advice of legal counsel.
