DNA Test - Folsom, California

Folsom CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Folsom, 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

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

Folsom, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Folsom, CA

Unmarried parents from Folsom, California, can establish paternity in three ways. If both have zero doubts about paternity, they can sign the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDP). They can file and sign this document at the hospital after the child is born. However, sometimes parents may have doubts or disagreements about paternity, in which case they should not sign the VDP. The VDP is a legally binding document that carries the same weight as a court order.

If parents have any reason to question paternity, they often choose to go to court. The judge often orders the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test. Paternity testing is usually done as a cheek swab—a quick, painless, and reliable method of proving paternity. The samples will be sent to a certified laboratory, and the judge may consider the results when establishing paternity.

If paternity is questioned, parents may also choose to get an at-home paternity test. At-home paternity testing provides individuals with a convenient and accessible option to determine biological relationships. This service allows individuals to gain insights into paternity privately and from the comfort of their own homes. The results of at-home paternity testing can provide peace of mind, but it's important to remember that the results are not usually admissible in a court of law. At Health Street, we offer at-home paternity testing services as well as legal clinic-administered DNA tests—simply choose the type of test that meets your needs best.

DNA test helps Sacramento woman discover her siblings

When Michelle was growing up, she noticed she looked nothing like her family. When she was eight, her parents told her she was adopted. Later, her adoptive father passed away, and she found out her biological mother was Korean. She did not know much more about her parents. Years passed, and eventually, her son gave her a special Christmas gift—a DNA test. She held onto it for years but didn't use it. Finally, she had some health issues, and her son told her he would not buy her anything else unless she did the DNA test.

Michelle took the DNA test and was surprised by the results. She had found a biological brother! When she contacted him, he said they had been looking for her, and he opened the door for her to another six siblings. But the surprises didn't end there—her birth mother, another sister, and brother were also waiting to be reunited. Michelle's story is a testament to the transformative power of DNA testing, enabling individuals to connect, embrace their heritage, and create lasting bonds. Health Street invites you to embark on your own DNA exploration, just like Michelle.
