DNA Test - Georgetown, Texas

Georgetown TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Georgetown, 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.

Georgetown, TX - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Georgetown, TX

When a Georgetown child is born to two unmarried parents, the biological mother and father will both need to properly establish paternity in the state of Texas for the father to gain paternal rights and responsibilities. Furthermore, paternity establishment will be necessary if either parent wishes to seek monthly child support assistance payments from the other.

The easiest way to establish paternity in Georgetown is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). This form is completely voluntary and must be signed and submitted by both parents at the hospital or at a later date through a Williamson County AOP-certified entity. Due to the legally binding nature of a paternity establishment between a child and their father, be sure to first seek DNA testing prior to signing the form if there is any doubt in the given paternity claim.

Paternity Laws and Regulations in Georgetown, TX

In cases of mistaken paternity, a Georgetown parent may learn later on down the line that the previously presumed father of their child is actually not the child's biological father. Regardless of the recent discovery, the legally designated father will still be held responsible for the child until the legal paternity establishment has been rescinded.

Under the Texas legislature, the Williamstown County Family Court is allowed to terminate a parent-child relationship alongside any child support obligations in circumstances of mistaken paternity. After filing a petition to terminate the legal relationship, the incorrect father will need to provide proof of DNA testing in court to verify that he is indeed not the biological father.

Paternity Programs in Georgetown, TX

Texas is one of many states that offer a paternity registry program. While registering with this program does not establish legal paternity, it declares the intent to claim paternity for men who believe they have fathered a child but have not been listed on the child's birth certificate or have no connection with the mother. In the event of legal action, such as an adoption hearing for the child, the registered individual will receive notice to potentially make an effort to assume responsibility for the child and gain parental rights.
