DNA Test - Dublin, Georgia

Dublin GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Dublin, Georgia 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 Dublin DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Dublin, GA - DNA Testing

How to Establish Paternity in Dublin, GA

When a Dublin child is born to two unmarried parents, both the father and mother must establish legal paternity to declare the child's biological father and provide him with paternal rights. Up until paternity is properly established, an unmarried Dublin father will hold zero custodial rights over a child and neither parent will be able to seek monthly child support assistance.

Luckily, establishing paternity in Dublin is simple and only requires the necessary paperwork through the Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement Program. While this is a voluntary process, both parents should be 100% confident in a child's paternity before moving forward. DNA paternity testing may be required to eliminate any doubt and move forward with the establishment process.

Paternity Laws and Regulations in Dublin, GA

If a Dublin parent has established paternity without the use of DNA testing and later learns that the claim is incorrect, a motion to disestablish paternity will need to be filed in Laurens County Court. Under Georgia Code § 19-7-54, a motion to set aside a determination of paternity can be filed at any time and must include specific evidence to support the claim of mistaken paternity.

When a motion to set aside a paternity establishment is submitted, the courts will request any newly discovered evidence regarding the child's paternity, including the results of a DNA test that was conducted within 90 days of the motion. If these results demonstrate incorrect paternity, the Laurens County judge can then disestablish paternity and vacate any child support orders.

Paternity Programs in Dublin, GA

After paternity has been established, non-custodial parents may be legally required to provide monthly child support assistance. Since 1997, the Georgia Fatherhood Program has helped noncustodial parents avoid delinquent child support court hearings by providing them with a variety of services that encourage and support parental and financial involvement.

To help achieve self-sufficiency, the Georgia Fatherhood Program provides resources to noncustodial Dublin parents, including driver's license reinstatement, job placement, GED enrollment, and child support services. To enroll in this program, the Dublin parent must have an active child support case and have already established paternity.
