DNA Test - Fayetteville, Arkansas

Fayetteville AR DNA Testing Locations

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

Establishing paternity in Fayetteville, AR

If a father and mother are not married but both agree to establish paternity, signing the Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity can provide them with the easiest way to legally establish paternity. Once signed and approved by the court, the child will have two legal parents. Parents can also seek court support in areas like visitation hours, custody, and child support.

For individuals who are unsure or disagree about the biological father, court may be necessary. A judge will often order a DNA test to determine whether the child and father are related. Painless, quick, and reliable genetic testing services are available through Health Street to provide biological proof. With DNA testing services, individuals can uncover the truth and take control of their family's future.

Adopted woman reunited with her biological parents after taking a DNA test

Laura was adopted back in 1968 when she was only a child. After more than fifty years, she recently decided to take a DNA test to uncover her roots. Genetic testing reunited her with her biological mother, Donna. Eager to learn more about her birth father, Laura asked Donna for additional details.

Donna revealed that Laura's biological parents were high school sweethearts who made the difficult decision to put her up for adoption due to their young age. With this information, Laura was able to track down her father, Joe, and reconnect him with Donna. He was divorced, and Donna was widowed. The pair immediately hit it off. Laura expressed her happiness at finding her biological parents and discovering more about her personal history. She credited their love story with shaping her into the person she is today and felt a sense of completeness in finally understanding her identity.
