DNA Test - Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin

Fond Du Lac WI DNA Testing Locations

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

How to Establish Paternity in Fond Du Lac

In the state of Wisconsin, there are four ways to establish legal paternity when a child is born to unmarried parents:

  1. Both parents can sign and file a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form.
  2. Paternity can be established by a court ruling.
  3. A man can be conclusively determined to be the child's father following an administrative subpoena for DNA testing from the county child support office.
  4. Both parents can sign an Acknowledgment of Marital Child form if they are married after the child is born.

In Fond Du Lac County, when parents who have never been married come to court for a paternity action, they may be required to attend the county's Keeping it About the Kids educational program.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

While steps are needed to establish paternity in Wisconsin, experts at the Sterling Law Offices, S.C., which serves clients in the Fond Du Lac area, highlight the many benefits of doing so. Establishing legal paternity gives the father legal rights regarding the child and ensures that both parents are financially responsible for the child's care.

Not only does the child benefit from knowing both of his or her parents, but they can also receive insurance benefits from either parent, receive inheritances, and be eligible for Social Security, veteran's and/or military benefits based on both parent's records. In addition, important matters such as custody and visitation cannot be determined until legal paternity has been established.

The Connection Between Paternity and Child Support

An order for child support cannot be issued until a man is deemed to be the child's legal father. In cases where paternity has not been established, the local child support agency can help. The office can issue an administrative subpoena requiring the child's mother, the alleged father, and the child to undergo genetic testing. If the test shows a 99% probability of paternity, both parents are over the age of 18, and there is no other presumption of paternity, then paternity is established. Once this is done, the man is responsible for paying child support. The Fond Du Lac County Child Support Office is located on the third floor of the Fond du Lac County Government Center, 160 South Macy Street Fond du Lac, WI 54935.
