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.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Daly City, CA
When a child is born to two married parents, the husband is considered to be the legal father of the child. If the parents were not married during conception or the time of birth, they will need to establish paternity. In many cases, if both parents agree on who the father is, they can establish paternity by signing a Declaration of Parentage.
In Daly City, CA, paternity will still need to be established, even if the man proved he is the father by using DNA testing, since a biological father doesn’t necessarily mean a legal father.
If the parents do not agree on who the biological father is, they will need to go to court, and the court may order DNA testing to prove paternity.
DNA testing may also be required for paternity purposes if the alleged father disputes paternity.
The Law of Elainie Honjas, serving Daly City, CA and San Mateo County, shares the importance of establishing paternity so that the child can have two legal parents.
“The focus of a parentage action is determining a child’s legal parents. This determination is critical because it dictates who has certain statutory rights and duties regarding the upbringing of the child; it determines who has a right to visitation with, and custody of, a child, who has a duty to support a child, and may also affect inheritance rights. Thus, establishing the identity of both of a child’s parents may be essential to ensuring financial stability for a child, and ensuring the child benefits from both parents playing a role in his or her upbringing. The importance of establishing the parents of a child is not limited to legal issues like custody and support; knowing one’s parents has important cultural and societal implications and often does and should play a large role in a child’s development.”
