Fort Worth TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Fort Worth, Texas 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.

Fort Worth, Texas - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Fort Worth, TX

Biological parents who are not married but want to establish paternity can voluntarily sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP), a legal document allowing couples who are not married to establish legal paternity. If you decide you want to complete and file an AOP, parents must coordinate with AOP-certified entities that the Office of the Attorney General has trained. If you need assistance, you can call the AOP Hotline or submit a request online.

If the parties are not in agreement regarding paternity, a DNA test may be required through a court order. DNA tests are usually performed by a simple cheek swab of the father and the child.

Benefits of establishing paternity in Fort Worth, Texas

Recently, a new leave policy was approved in Fort Worth, Texas. The policy offers six weeks of paid leave for maternity or paternity leave, including for adoptions and placements of children in homes. Only parents who have established paternity are eligible for this benefit.

Other benefits for eligible parents can include child support, cash medical support, or health coverage. Additionally, if a man wants to visit his child or obtain custody of a child, paternity often must be established first. For the child, benefits can include access to his or her father's medical history and possible inheritance.

Fort Worth, TX: Challenging paternity

If the mother is unsure who the father is, or the father does not believe he is the biological father, they can do a DNA test. Paternity DNA testing is a simple method of identifying the birth dad and establishing paternity. The court usually orders the DNA test, and once the court gets the results the judge will establish paternity.

If a man believes himself to be the father, but somebody else has already signed the AOP form, then he can file a paternity suit and ask a court to identify him as the child's legal father.
