DNA Test - Davie, Florida

Davie FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Davie, Florida 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.

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

Davie, Florida - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Davie, FL

Unmarried parents in Davie, Florida, have two ways of establishing paternity. They can voluntarily sign a Paternity Acknowledgment form or go to court. If they are both sure about paternity, there is no reason why they should go to court to establish it. They can sign the form at the hospital when the baby is born. However, sometimes, the mother may need clarification about who the biological father is, or the alleged father may disagree about paternity. In these cases, many people choose to go to court, where the judge will likely order the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test.

A simple cheek swab can quickly determine whether the alleged father is, in fact, the birth father. After considering the DNA test results, the judge can decide how to establish paternity. After paternity is established, Davie parents can also go through the court to establish custody, visitation, and child support if necessary.

Davie, Florida: Benefits of establishing paternity

Establishing paternity can be beneficial for all parties involved. Doing so can give the father a better chance to develop a relationship with the child, and he can ask the court to establish custody or visitation hours. Parents can often both participate in decisions about the child's upbringing, including important decisions like religion, education, and health.

Additionally, the child may be eligible for health insurance or government benefits from the father. If anything happens to the father, the child may also be eligible for inheritance. The child can even have easier access to the father's medical history, which can help determine potential genetic health threats in the family. Knowing both parents can help the child develop a better sense of identity and build a better bond with them.
