DNA Test - Gray, Tennessee

Gray TN DNA Testing Locations

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

Gray, TN - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Gilly, Hill, & Schaefer, a law firm serving Gray and Johnson City, explain paternity and legitimation. "If you are the mother of a child born out of wedlock, you can take paternity action against the biological father and ask the court to order him to pay child support. Requiring the father to pay child support does not, however, confer automatic legitimacy," said the law firm. "If you are the biological father of an out-of-wedlock child, and you wish to become the legal father, you must bring a legitimation action in order to gain this right."

Establishing Paternity in Gray, TN

Establishing paternity is the process of giving a child a legal father. If the parents are married when they have a child, the husband becomes the child's legal father. However, in Gray, TN, unmarried parents must establish paternity, which is crucial to a child's well-being. A child with two parents has a sense of identity and gets a chance to develop relationships with both parents. Paternity also allows the child access to medical information from both families, access to financial support from both parents, and any available benefits from either parent, like social security, inheritance, and medical benefits. The easiest way to establish paternity in Gray is by signing a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity. Otherwise, they can establish paternity in court.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Gray, TN

If establishing paternity in court, the judge may require DNA testing. Either parent or the Washington County Child Support Office may also request DNA testing to prove paternity. If either parent doubts paternity, they should not sign a paternity acknowledgment until a DNA test confirms the child's biological father. Once DNA testing confirms the father, paternity can be established with a paternity acknowledgment form or by court order. The local child support office for Gray residents is located at 1500 W. Elk Avenue, Suite 206 in Elizabethton.
