DNA Test - Fremont, California

Fremont CA DNA Testing Locations

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

Fremont, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Fremont, California

Unwed Californians can establish paternity in three ways. Parents can sign a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage or Paternity, ask their local child support agency to establish parentage, or go to the court and let the judge establish paternity.

The declaration can be signed when the baby is born at the hospital, or parents can sign it later. Once paternity is established, each parent has responsibilities to support the child.

If the parents can not agree on who the biological father is, a DNA test may be necessary. The court often asks the alleged father to do DNA testing. Based on the DNA test results, the judge can then establish paternity.

DNA test reunites a Californian family

Matthew was adopted at birth, but his mother died when he was only six. He started searching for his biological mother during college because of the void he felt. He hired a professional to help him search for his birth mother. Although she put together some good information, it was not enough.

More than 30 years later, Matthew's wife surprised him with a DNA test kit. He expected to learn more about his ancestors and medical history but did not expect anything more. He matched with a distant cousin with the same last name as his mother. She had no idea about his mother but promised to ask around the family. Weeks went by, until finally Matthew received a text message from his cousin, which contained a photo of Judy Lloyd and a note that this might be his mother.

An emotional phone call with his mother ensued, and Matthew also learned he had two brothers and a sister. Afterward, they organized a trip together, and he said it connected them deeply. By the end of the trip, they were already planning another time together.

He learned his biological father died but has not asked too many questions about it yet. He is still in a great relationship with his adoptive dad.
