DNA Test - Cypress, Texas

Cypress TX DNA Testing Locations

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

DNA and Paternity Testing in Cypress

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Cypress, TX

When a married Cypress couple has a child, Texas law automatically grants the husband paternal rights at birth. This is because the state of Texas presumes the husband is the biological father. Because the state cannot legally recognize a child's father if both parents are not married, it's important for the mother and father to establish legal paternity as soon as possible.

By legally establishing paternity in the state of Texas, an unmarried father can obtain parental rights as the child's legal father, also allowing his name to be placed on the birth certificate. This legal establishment further benefits the child, as he or she can receive benefits such as health insurance and inheritance from both parent parties. In addition, if a parent requires monthly child support assistance, Texas Child Support Services will require the legal establishment of paternity.

How to Establish Paternity in Cypress, TX

Unmarried Cypress parents have a few ways of establishing legal paternity in the state of Texas. As long as both parents are completely confident in the child's paternity, the two should establish paternity by filing an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) form. This voluntary form must be completed by both parents in order to legally recognize the child's biological father. While hospital staff will first present this form for completion following the child's birth, the two parents can also complete one at a later date through a Harris County AOP-certified entity.

If either parent encounters difficulty establishing paternity with the other parent, paternity will have to be established through a court order. By filing a paternity petition through Harris County Family Court, a judge has the ability to mandate DNA paternity testing. The mother, child, and presumed father will then undergo testing to accurately determine the child's father and establish paternity.

Disestablishing Paternity in Cypress, TX

After completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity, a Cypress man may learn that he is not the child's biological father. In cases of mistaken paternity, Texas law allows an individual to file a petition in court to terminate an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. By filing this petition, the courts will typically request proof of mistaken paternity using DNA testing.

If results can conclude the mistaken paternity claim is accurate, Harris County court will cancel the paternity establishment and potentially remove child support obligations the man may hold. Bear in mind, if the man owes any child support up until the time of termination, he will still need to pay the owed amount.
