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.

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.

How to Establish Paternity in East Setauket

In New York State, a child who is born out of wedlock does not have a legal father until paternity has been established. According to Suffolk County paternity lawyers at the office of Louis L. Sternberg, which serves clients in East Setauket and the surrounding area, there are two ways this can be done:

Both parents can sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Parentage form.
The courts can issue an Order of Filiation following a DNA test, admission by the father, and/or additional evidence presented during a hearing.

Understanding Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity

A voluntary acknowledgment of paternity (VOP) is the easiest way to establish a child's paternity in the state of New York. Experts at the law firm of Jason M. Barbara & Associates, which serves clients in the East Setauket area, explain that this option is only available if the mother is not married to anyone other than the child's biological father.

Parents typically sign the VOP form in the hospital when the child is born. However, it can also be done at a later date, up until the child turns 21 years of age. If either parent changes their mind or has signed the form by mistake, it can be reversed by filing a petition within 60 days of the date the original form was signed. When submitting the petition, you must explain the reason for the request, for example, whether you originally signed the form due to duress or fraud.

The Connection Between Paternity and Child Support

East Setauket residents seeking child support must first establish the child's legal paternity. According to the Suffolk County government website, the state's Child Support Enforcement Program can assist with establishing paternity. Once a man has been named a child's legal father, he is responsible for providing child support. His name is also added to the child's birth certificate and he may be ordered to provide the child with health insurance benefits. In addition, the child will be eligible to receive an inheritance from the father and access to his social security benefits, veterans' benefits, and/or military allowances.
