DNA Test - Gurabo, Puerto Rico

Gurabo PR DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Gurabo, Puerto Rico 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Gurabo DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

DNA Testing in Gurabo, Puerto Rico

Presumption of Paternity in Puerto Rico

According to Puerto Rico law, if a child is born to parents who are married, it is presumed that the mother's husband is the child's legal father. The law also presumes paternity if a child is born within 300 days after a marriage is terminated. If a father voluntarily acknowledges a child as his own, this also creates a presumption of paternity.

In cases where the presumption of paternity is not correct, an interested party should challenge the presumption within six months of becoming aware of the inaccuracy or from the date of approval of the presumption (whichever is later). If a DNA test shows that the man is not the child's biological father but he acknowledges the child anyway, the parents won't have grounds to later dispute the presumption of paternity.

Rights of Legitimate Children

In Gurabo, and all other parts of Puerto Rico, once paternity is established, the child is considered "legitimate." According to PR law, a legitimate child has certain rights, including:

1. Using the family name of his or her father or mother

2. Receiving financial support from both parents

3. Receiving an inheritance from both parents

Child Support and Paternity

Paternity must be established before a mother can seek a child support order. When applying for child support, the mother has the right to obtain legal counsel, and this is often recommended. In some circumstances, the child support office will help the mother track down the child's father and order a DNA test to prove his paternity. The child support office for residents of Gurabo is located in San Juan.

Mothers should be aware that although it's done through a separate court proceeding, once a man is deemed to be a child's legal father, he can also seek custody of the child and/or visitation rights.
