DNA Test - Daytona Beach, Florida

Daytona Beach FL DNA Testing Locations

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

Daytona Beach, FL - DNA Testing

Paternity Programs in Daytona Beach, FL

Through the Florida Department of Health, unmarried Daytona Beach men who believe they have fathered a child can register with the Putative Father Registry to preserve certain parental rights. Note that this is not a method of establishing paternity and parental rights but is instead simply a notice of intent to establish paternity over the child.

By properly registering, a Daytona Beach father will preserve his right to notice and consent in the event of legal proceedings involving the child's adoption. To sign up for the Putative Father Registry program, a Daytona Beach father will need to complete a Claim of Paternity Form and submit it to a Volusia County Office of Vital Statistics office location.

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Daytona Beach, FL

To gain paternal rights and have the father's name placed on the child's birth certificate, unmarried Daytona Beach parents must establish paternity promptly following their child's birth. This can be done by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity through the hospital where the child is delivered. It is a voluntary process, and DNA testing should first be used during instances of uncertainty to properly determine a child's biological father.

When a parent refuses to establish paternity, the Daytona Beach parent seeking the establishment must request assistance through the Volusia County Family Court instead. Filing a petition to establish paternity enables a judge to require DNA testing of the presumed father and child. If the courts can accurately determine the biological father, paternity will then be established alongside any necessary parenting plans involving visitation and/or custody agreements.

Experts in Daytona Beach, FL Say…

There are benefits of establishing paternity beyond establishing parental rights and responsibilities that Daytona Beach parents must consider. According to Daytona Beach Paternity Law Attorney Carol Peake, legally declaring a child's father through a proper establishment also allows the custodial parent to receive monthly child support assistance from the non-custodial parent. Established paternity is also necessary if the non-custodial parent wishes to seek visitation rights.
