DNA Test - Farmville, Virginia

Farmville VA DNA Testing Locations

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

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Farmville, VA and Prince Edward County

Establishing paternity means giving your child a legal father. In Farmville, VA and Prince Edward County, you do not need to establish or prove paternity if you are married to the mother when the baby is born. If you are the husband, you will automatically be the child's legal father.

If you are unmarried, even if you plan on marrying the mother after the child is born, you will need to establish paternity.

Establishing paternity can be done with both parents voluntarily signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP) form. This can be done at the hospital when the child is born and will assure that the father will be listed on the child's birth certificate.

You will also need to establish paternity if:

you are not married and do not sign the AOP form at the time of your child's birth.
you want custody or visitation for your child.
you wish to provide child or medical support for your child.

Establishing paternity can be done by taking a DNA test to prove paternity through the Department of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE) or by opening a child support case. You can also file a petition at the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.

Experts Say...

Virginia Law Office Kearney, Freeman, Fogarty and Joshi, PLLC discusses the importance of establishing paternity. "When paternity is established the mother and father can pursue their legal rights and responsibilities regarding the custody, visitation and monetary support of a child. For example, a woman cannot pursue child support from a man denying paternity until it has been legally established he is the child's father. Men who were not married to the mother when the child was born may wish to establish paternity to secure visitation or custody rights in order to spend time with their son or daughter. If a child born during a marriage was the result of adultery, the husband may wish to show he is not the father to avoid paying child support."
