Daly City CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Daly City, California locations:

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

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 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.

How to Establish Paternity in Daly City, CA

Establishing paternity is extremely important for unmarried Daly City parents as it provides legal means of declaring the child's biological father and grants him his parental rights over the child. There are two methods the state of California provides to establish paternity, one being the voluntary signing of a Declaration of Parentage. This voluntary establishment process is completed at the hospital or through a San Mateo County Child Support Office.

Bear in mind that the paternity establishment process is legally binding and DNA paternity testing must be completed first if there is any sort of doubt as to a child's correct paternity. If a parent encounters difficulties having the other parent establish paternity, the second method to establish paternity is via court order. Filing a petition to establish paternity in San Mateo Family Court allows a judge to request that the presumed father establish paternity using DNA testing.

Disputing Paternity in Daly City, CA

In certain situations, two Daly City parents may quickly establish paternity without accurately confirming it via DNA testing, then later learn that the presumed father is, in fact, not the biological father. This can be an extremely frustrating situation, as paternity establishments create a legal bond between the child and presumed father, requiring him to meet all child support obligations.

In the event that paternity needs to be disestablished, the state of California allows paternity establishments to be revoked by filing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage Rescission within 60 of the establishment's original filing. Following the 60-day mark, paternity establishments may only be removed via court order, which will most likely require proof of DNA testing.

Experts in Daly City, CA Say…

In addition to providing an unmarried Daly City father with his paternal rights, establishing paternity in the state of California is also beneficial for the child. According to Daly City family law attorney Debra Schoenberg, establishing paternity will also entitle a child to health insurance benefits from the father, as well as any potential inheritance benefits that may exist. Paternity establishments must also be filed for a parent to seek monthly child support services from the opposite parent.
