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.

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results.

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

Cypress, CA - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Cypress, CA

When a child is born to two unmarried Cypress parents, both parents will need to establish paternity to declare the legal father and grant him paternal rights. This process can be completed voluntarily through the Parentage Opportunity Program, which allows parents to sign and submit a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP) at the hospital or birthing facility.

Bear in mind, if one parent is uncertain of a child's paternity, neither parent should move forward with establishing paternity until a Cypress DNA test is completed. Failing to accurately determine the paternity of a child through genetic testing could result in legal complications if mistaken paternity is learned at a later date.

Court-Assisted Paternity Establishments in Cypress, CA

If one parent denies a paternity claim and refuses to establish paternity, the other seeking the establishment must file a court action to complete this process. Filing a petition to establish paternity in Orange County Court enables a judge to require both parents and the child to undergo Cypress DNA testing. If the biological father can be identified through DNA testing, the courts can proceed with the establishment process.

Once paternity is properly established, both parents may also move forward with laying out any custody, visitation, or monthly child support agreements. Without the legal establishment of paternity, the custodial parent will be unable to seek monthly child support assistance and the biological father will not hold paternal rights.

Experts in Cypress, CA Say…

When Cypress parents are married at the time of a child's birth, the husband will automatically gain paternal rights and responsibility, as it is legally assumed that he is the biological father. However, according to Cypress paternity attorney Karie Boyd, the husband must act quickly and challenge the alleged paternity if he believes he is not the biological father. If necessary, the husband can use DNA testing results in court to prove he is not the father and disestablish paternity to avoid legal child support obligations.
