Types of DNA Tests at our Dyersburg, Tennessee clinics:

Paternity Testing can 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 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 Dyersburg DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Dyersburg, TN

Establishing paternity means giving your child a legal father, which is essential for the child, the mother, and the father. When the child has a legal father, both parents can share emotional and financial parental responsibilities, which benefits the child's well-being and gives them a sense of security. Establishing paternity benefits the child in many ways; it gives the child a sense of identity, allows the child access to medical information from both families, and allows the child access to benefits, like life and medical insurance, veterans' benefits, social security, inheritance, or other available benefits. The Department of Human Services and the Dyer County Child Support Office can assist parents with establishing paternity. The Child Support Office is located at 1911 Upper Finley Road in Dyersburg.

Establishing Paternity in Dyersburg, TN

If unmarried Dyersburg parents have a child, they must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. The easiest way to establish paternity in Dyersburg is by filing a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity (VAoP). Both parents must agree to sign the voluntary form for paternity to be established. Parents can sign the form at the hospital when the child is born or later at the Child Support Office. They can also submit it to the state Office of Vital Records, at P.O. Box 1360 in Dyersburg. If both parents cannot agree to file a VAoP, they can establish paternity in court, and the court may order a DNA test to prove paternity.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Dyersburg, TN

Either parent or the Dyer County Child Support Office can request a DNA test to prove the child's biological father. A certified laboratory must analyze the DNA test. Once the DNA test confirms that the man is the child's father, the parents can establish paternity voluntarily by filing a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity or by a court order.
