Green Bay WI DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Green Bay WI 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 Green Bay DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Green Bay, WI

When unmarried Green Bay parents have a child, both will need to properly establish paternity in the state of Wisconsin in order for the biological father to gain parental rights over the child. By declaring legal responsibilities, either parent also can request child support services when necessary.

Beyond parental benefits, establishing legal paternity in the state of Wisconsin also provides benefits to the child. Benefits include the ability to receive health insurance, social security, and inheritance benefits from both parent parties. To ensure minimal complications, it's important for Green Bay parents to first seek DNA paternity testing prior to establishing paternity in the event there is any uncertainty in a child's paternity.

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Green Bay, WI

In the state of Wisconsin, Green Bay parents can establish paternity in one of two ways. The simplest method is by completing a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment following the child's birth. Keep in mind, this method is completely voluntary and should only be filed if there is complete confidence in the child's paternity or if paternity testing has been used to identify the father.

The second method of establishing paternity in Wisconsin is through a court order. This method is typically used by those who cannot get the opposite parent to agree to establish paternity or if they deny a child's presumed paternity. Filing a petition to establish paternity through a Brown County Family Court allows a judge to request DNA testing from the presumed father to support the parent's paternity claims and help move forward with the establishment process.

Experts in Green Bay, WI Say…

Following a troublesome paternity establishment process, two Green Bay parents may find themselves returning to Brown County Family Court to additionally establish a child custody agreement. According to Green Bay family law attorney Jonathan Goldman, courts will consider a variety of factors to construct a satisfactory custody agreement, such as the wishes of the child, each parent's relationship with the child, and the child's educational and housing needs.
