DNA Test - Fayetteville, North Carolina

Fayetteville NC DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Fayetteville, North Carolina 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.

Fayetteville, North Carolina - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Fayetteville, NC

According to North Carolina law, both parents must legally establish paternity for an unmarried Fayetteville father to gain paternal rights over his child. The paternity establishment process is extremely important for both parents, as it allows the father to be placed on the child's birth certificate. It's also critical for the child, who can then receive support benefits from both parents.

To establish paternity in the state of North Carolina, two parents can complete a Voluntary Affidavit of Parentage. This is a mutual agreement regarding the child's biological father, and legally establishes the presumed father as the biological father. If there is any uncertainty about a child's paternity, both parents must first conduct DNA paternity testing to determine the child's father.

Navigating a Difficult Paternity Establishment in Fayetteville, NC

Establishing paternity through a Voluntary Affidavit of Parentage will only be successful if both parents agree to sign the form. In the instance a parent refuses to sign the form, a parent will need to file a petition to establish paternity with the Cumberland County Family Court to properly identify the child's father in the state of North Carolina.

From here, a Cumberland County judge can issue a summons to the opposing parent to complete the necessary establishment steps. These steps often include the request for DNA paternity testing to accurately determine the child's biological father. If the presumed father is found to be the biological father, paternity will be legally established, and the father will gain paternal rights.

Experts in Fayetteville, NC Say…

In many paternity and custody cases, the biological father often feels as though the courts will favor the mother's side when deciding custody agreements. However, according to Fayetteville Family Law Attorney Victoria Harden, fathers have equal rights to custody and visitation as mothers, and mothers are not automatically considered the fittest caregiver.

Instead, the courts will assess both parental parties during a custody hearing and consider contributing factors, such as living situations, income, and criminal history, to develop a custody plan that works in the best interest of the child. A father also can request child support services if he is found to be the fittest parent.
