DNA Testing Evansville IN

Evansville IN DNA Testing Locations

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

Evansville, Indiana - DNA Testing

How to Establish Paternity in Evansville, IN

When two unmarried Evansville parents have a child in the state of Indiana, paternity will need to be legally established for the father to obtain his parental rights over the child and place his name on the child's birth certificate. For Indiana residents, paternity can be established in one of two ways: either by completing a paternity affidavit or through a court order.

When both parents are in complete agreement, have full confidence in a child's paternity, or have already used DNA testing to confirm the child's biological father, the easiest way to establish paternity is by completing a paternity affidavit. This document can be completed within 72 hours of the child's birth at a hospital or Vanderburgh County Health Department Office to establish paternity.

In the event that either parent refuses to establish paternity, one must file a petition to establish paternity through Vanderburgh County Family Court. This legal motion allows a judge to request that the presumed father undergoes DNA paternity testing to accurately confirm the child's paternity. Once the father is identified, the two parents can move forward with the paternity establishment process as well as any accompanying child support or custody agreements.

Disestablishing Paternity in Evansville, IN

Under Indiana law, a man who was previously presumed to be the biological father of a child has within 60 days of filing a paternity affidavit to rescind this agreement. After this 60-day mark, an Evansville man will not be able to rescind the order regardless of DNA testing evidence. To remove this agreement post the 60 days, an Evansville man must file a court order and go through the process of proving material mistake, duress, or paternity fraud.

Experts in Evansville, IN Say…

Beyond establishing paternity, an Evansville parent may require further legal assistance with additional child support needs. According to Evansville family law attorney Patrick A. Duff, once paternity is established, the courts can be used to determine custody arrangements, parenting time agreements, and child support payments. Because of the legally binding status of these agreements, it's important to always first seek DNA testing services if there is any doubt about a child's paternity.
