DNA Test - Farmington Hills, Michigan

Farmington Hills MI DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Farmington Hills, Michigan 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.

Farmington Hills, Michigan - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Farmington Hills, MI

Parents who are married when they have a baby in Farmington Hills do not need to establish legal paternity, as the law automatically considers the husband the legal father. Unmarried parents can establish paternity voluntarily or involuntarily. If there are no doubts about the biological father, the mother and father can simply sign the paternity affidavit form at the hospital. They can also sign the form later on, for example, at the Registrar's Office, online, or at the department of health.

If the alleged father or mother disagrees about paternity, they can establish legal paternity through the court. Usually, the judge will order the alleged father and child to take a DNA test. Paternity testing is a painless, quick, and reliable method of proving paternity using a simple cheek swab. Once the DNA test results return from the laboratory, the judge can consider the results in the paternity decision and any requests to establish visitation rights, custody, and child support.

DNA test reunites Michigan woman with her family

Julie learned she was adopted right after birth but knew little about her biological parents. She was told her mother was blonde and only seventeen years old when she had her, but this was not enough for her. Julie wanted to know more. However, she did not want to hurt her adoptive parents either. She loved them and said a better family could not have adopted her.

She waited until she was in her 50s to finally take a DNA test. The test results led her to her cousin, which led to her mother. She still had no clue about her biological father at that time, but that soon changed, too. After her half-brother contacted her, he reconnected Julie with her father. He had no idea she even existed! They planned a reunion in Michigan with her father, and then she traveled to meet all her half-siblings. Now, Julie advocates for other people to take DNA tests if they are in search of a family member.
