DNA Test - Elyria, Ohio

Elyria OH DNA Testing Locations

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

Elyria, Ohio - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Elyria, OH

Unwed people in Elyria, Ohio, have three options for establishing paternity. They can:

Signing the Acknowledgment of the Paternity (AOP) Affidavit is voluntary, free, and the fastest way to establish legal paternity if both parties agree they are the biological parents.
Genetic testing, followed by an Administrative Order Establishment of Paternity, is sometimes used when paternity is uncertain. It involves conducting genetic tests, requiring a 99% probability for paternity to be established.
A court order of paternity

Most people sign the AOP Affidavit, as they can usually do so in the hospital right after the baby is born, making the whole process smooth and quick. However, the AOP Affidavit can also be signed at a local registrar or county child support enforcement agency.

If parents have any reason to doubt paternity, they usually choose from the other two options, which often include DNA testing. DNA tests are quick, painless, and reliable proof of whether the man is the child's birth father. Genetic testing is often done by cheek swabs on the alleged father and the child, and a certified lab compares results.

If you find yourself needing clarification on paternity, Heath Street can help you put your mind at ease. We offer DNA testing solutions across Elyria, throughout Ohio, and nationwide. Contact us today online or via phone to book an appointment. Scheduling is easy and quick.

Elyria, Ohio: Challenging paternity

Sometimes, the alleged father disputes his paternity. This typically involves filing a case in juvenile probate court. While parents have the option to settle at any point, disagreements may lead to a trial, where the judge commonly orders DNA testing. If the judge declares legal paternity, then decisions about child support, visitation, and custody may also be made.

In Elyria, Ohio, Health Street's DNA testing services offer accuracy and convenience. Our DNA tests are available nationwide, and participants can be tested at different locations and times.
