DNA Test – Escondido, California

Escondido CA DNA Testing Locations

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

Info for DNA Testing in Escondido

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Escondido, CA

In Escondido, CA, when a child is born to two married parents, the husband is automatically the child’s legal father. But if the child is born to two unmarried parents, paternity will need to be established.

Without establishing paternity, the child does not have the same rights as a child that was born to married parents, and he or she will not have access to certain benefits or be able to develop relationships with both parents.

Establishing paternity in Escondido, CA can be done in two ways:

Sign a Declaration of Paternity. This is a legal document that’s voluntarily signed by both parents. Once it’s filed, the man becomes the child’s legal father, and there is no need to go to court.
Get a court order. If one parent decides to not sign the Declaration of Paternity, paternity can be established by a court order.

If there is a question about who the father is, DNA testing is available to prove paternity.

Experts Say…

Goldberg Jones, a divorce law office that serves San Diego County, CA, focuses on fathers’ rights. “Most fathers think that if they were not married to the mother of their child, they have no legal rights as a parent. That isn’t true,” the law office states. “Paternity for the unmarried father NEEDS TO BE PROVEN through DNA testing or demonstrated through the existence of a Paternity Affidavit.”

The law firm explains that today’s DNA testing results are accurate and offer indisputable proof of parentage. DNA testing to prove paternity can be requested by the father or a court order for DNA testing may be obtained.

The law firm states, “When paternity has been established the father may seek custody rights in the form of a Parenting Plan or Visitation Schedule just as if the couple was married.”
