DNA Test – Edison, New Jersey

Edison NJ DNA Testing Locations

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

Edison, New Jersey: DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Edison, New Jersey

Unmarried New Jersey parents can easily establish paternity by signing and completing a Certificate of Parentage, which they can do together with a certificate coordinator at the hospital once the child is born. If both parents are not present at the time of birth, it is also possible to sign this document at the local registrar’s office later. Upon request, the father’s name will be added to the child’s birth certificate upon request.

Sometimes, parents are unsure or disagree about paternity. In these cases, either parent can file a paternity action in the New Jersey Family Court. The alleged father and the child will likely be ordered to take a DNA test to determine their relationship. The DNA test results may influence the judge’s decision, but may not be the only factor considered. After the judge has declared a legal father, the father can have legal rights and responsibilities towards the child. Without legal paternity, the father would have no right to gain custody or visitation hours.

Edison, New Jersey: Benefits of establishing paternity

When the father establishes paternity in Edison, New Jersey, he gains legal rights and responsibilities towards the child, some of which can include financially supporting the child and participating in decisions about the child’s health, education, or religious upbringing.
