Specimens we can test for DNA

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.

Establishing Paternity in Greenwood Village, CO
For unmarried Greenwood Village, CO parents who recently had a child, it’s important to understand that the biological father will possess no legal rights without the establishment of paternity. Legal paternity is required to place the father’s information on the child’s birth certificate. To gain parental rights, the child’s mother and father will need to complete the paternity establishment process.
In the state of Colorado, two Greenwood Village parents can legally establish paternity by completing a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Parentage Form. This legally binding document declares the child’s biological father and establishes his paternal rights. Parents can either complete this form at the hospital following the child’s birth or through an Arapahoe County Child Support Services office.
Dealing With a Difficult Paternity Establishment
Not always will the paternity establishment process be as simple as the completion of a form. For instances when a Greenwood Village, CO parent encounters difficulties having the other parent agree to establish legal paternity, it’s recommended to seek legal assistance. Through the Arapahoe County Family Court, a parent can file a paternity petition to establish legal paternity.
During this process, a summons will typically be issued to require the mother, presumed father, and child undergo DNA paternity testing. If the presumed father and child are a genetic match, the courts will be able to legally establish paternity. Likewise, the courts can further assist if a parent requires child support services or a legally declared custody agreement.
Notable Events Relating to Paternity and DNA Testing in Greenwood Village, CO
