DNA Test - Grand Prairie, Texas

Grand Prairie TX DNA Testing Locations

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

Establishing Paternity in Grand Prairie, TX

Establishing paternity means giving a child a legal father. In Grand Prairie, paternity must be established if the parents are not married when the child is born. If the parents agree on the biological father, they can sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity form, a legal, voluntary form stating the child's father. If the parents cannot agree to sign the form, paternity can be established involuntarily by going to court. If either parent is uncertain about the child's biological father or denies that the man is the father, the court will order DNA testing to prove paternity.

Establishing paternity gives children a relationship with both parents, benefits that include medical insurance, life insurance, and social security, and allows children access to medical information from both sides of the family. The parents benefit from establishing paternity by sharing the costs and responsibilities of parenthood.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Grand Prairie, TX

In Grand Prairie, when a mother and alleged father cannot agree on the child's biological father, or they want to confirm who the father is, the Office of the Attorney General will file a petition asking the court to determine paternity. The court will likely order DNA testing. DNA testing requires a cheek swab from the mother, child, and alleged father, either in court, at a certified clinic, or at the local Child Support Office located in Arlington. When the DNA test confirms paternity, the paternity order can be finalized.

Experts Say...

Len Conner & Associates, family law attorneys serving Grand Prairie, explain why it's important to establish paternity. "Establishing paternity can be essential to protecting your rights, whether you're the father or mother of the child," the law firm states. "As the mother, a paternity determination can make you eligible for child support. As the father, you may be able to make a claim for access or visitation with your minor child."
