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.

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.

Deerfield Beach, Florida - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

John Buchmiller & Associates, father's rights attorneys that serve Deerfield Beach, FL, explains that unmarried mothers in Florida have complete legal rights of a child unless the biological father becomes the child's legal father. "A healthy, loving relationship with your child improves the quality of life for both the parent and the child," the law firm says. "However, if you are an unmarried father or not currently living with the mother of your child, you may face legal obstacles to forming the relationship you desire with your children." The law firm explains that either parent can begin paternity proceedings and that paternity can either be established voluntarily or by going to court.

Establishing Paternity in Deerfield Beach, FL

Establishing paternity gives a child a legal father, which provides several benefits to the child and both parents. Having a legal father allows the child to access medical information from both sides of the family, gain a sense of identity, and obtain health and life insurance from both parents, in addition to other benefits like social security, veterans' benefits, or inheritance. It also allows the mother to receive child support and the father to have his name added to the birth certificate. In addition, both parents can have relationships with the child.

In Deerfield Beach, unmarried parents can establish paternity by legitimation, voluntarily, or by going to court. Legitimation happens when two unmarried parents get married and establish paternity while applying for their marriage license. If parents agree to establish paternity voluntarily, they can sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity form at the hospital when the child is born. If the parents cannot agree to establish paternity in these two ways, it can be established with a legal order and genetic testing.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Deerfield Beach, FL

Paternity can be established in court by a judge or by the Child Support Program in a final order. Both situations may require DNA testing to prove that the alleged father is the child's legal father. DNA test samples are taken from the child, mother, and alleged father. If the DNA test proves the man is the father, the parents can establish paternity and avoid going to court.
