Fair Oaks CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Fair Oaks, 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

Our Fair Oaks DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Local DNA Testing for Fair Oaks, CA

Local DNA Stories

In 2017, a Sacramento County woman used DNA testing and found out that she was not Hispanic, which is what she believed for 37 years. Krista Brian also thought that her father had committed suicide when she was a baby, but DNA testing showed that was also false.

Brian learned that she was African American and that she had a father who was alive and living in Florida. She used the DNA test to contact the family she didn't know she had. She discovered that her father only knew her mother for a short time period and that he didn't even know of her existence. Brian began visiting Florida and even met four siblings. Her DNA test results came in December, right before Christmas. She said, "It was the best Christmas present I could have ever had."

Experts Say...

Williams Family Law, serving Fair Oaks, CA and Sacramento County, says, "California law requires both parents to provide support for a child, but courts cannot issue an order unless the parent-child relationship is a legal certainty." They explain that it's rare to question the identity of the biological mother. The father, on the other hand, is only assumed to be the legal parent if the parents are married when the child is born. "As a result," says the law firm, "unwed parents and children born out of wedlock must often take an extra step in the process by filing a parentage action against the other parent."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Fair Oaks, CA

When a child is born to unwed parents and they cannot establish paternity voluntarily, either parent can begin a parentage case. If an alleged father will not admit to paternity, the mother will submit evidence to the court and the court will order DNA testing to prove paternity.
