DNA Test - Hamilton, Ohio

Hamilton OH DNA Testing Locations

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

Hamilton, OH - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Hamilton, OH

Establishing paternity is crucial as it establishes legal fatherhood, granting important rights and responsibilities. It enables the child to have a legal father listed on their birth certificate and opens avenues for financial support, custody, and visitation arrangements. Regardless of the circumstances, paternity can be determined before the child turns 23, even if the other parent resides in another state or a foreign country.

There are multiple avenues available for unmarried parents to establish paternity in Hamilton, Ohio. Some popular ways of establishing paternity include signing the Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit or obtaining a Court Order.

The simplest method is to sign the Affidavit, where both parents affirm that the alleged father is indeed the birth father. By executing this document, the man legally becomes the father. This legally binding option should only be pursued if there are no doubts about paternity, as it can be difficult to reverse.

Another option is to establish paternity through the court system. The judge may order a DNA test to prove the biological relationship between the alleged father and child. If paternity is established, the judge may also determine custody, visitation, and child support if necessary.

Health Street's DNA testing services in Hamilton, Ohio, can assist parents in establishing paternity with accuracy and ease. Our tests involve a simple cheek swab and boast a 99.9% accuracy rate, ensuring a quick and painless process.

DNA test reunites mother and daughter after 30 years

Sue had made the difficult decision to give up her daughter for adoption over thirty years ago. She was unaware that her daughter, Jenna, resided just a 45-minute drive away. In 2019, Jenna decided to take a DNA test, which led her to her biological mother. Sue, who had only discovered her pregnancy when she was already seven and a half months along, had not been prepared to raise a child but emphasized her enduring love for her baby. Jenna, having known about her adoption, had always longed to find her birth mother. When they finally met, an instant reconnection occurred, bringing joy and a sense of fulfillment in finding their way back to each other.
