Types of DNA Tests at our Hartsdale, New York clinics:

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 Hartsdale DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

The ability to petition for child support
Access to the father's health insurance benefits (if available to him)
Ability to access benefits based on the father's records, including Social Security, veteran's benefits, etc.
Ability to receive an inheritance from the father's estate

The Westchester County government encourages residents to establish legal paternity immediately after a child is born. Some of the reasons to do so include:

In addition, establishing paternity gives the child a sense of identity and allows the father's name to be added to the child's birth certificate. Once paternity is established, the courts can also rule on important topics like visitation and custody.

How to Establish Paternity in Westchester County

According to Westchester County Attorney Martin J. Rosen, there are three ways to establish paternity in New York State.

1. Marriage - If a child's mother is married when she gives birth, the husband is presumed to be the child's legal father.

2. Acknowledgement of Paternity - The father can sign and file an acknowledgment of paternity form.

3. Order of Filiation - Legal paternity is established through Paternity Court. If there is a dispute about the identity of the child's father, the courts will often require a DNA test before making a ruling.

Who Can Bring an Action for Paternity?

There are several interested parties who can bring an action of paternity. This includes the child's mother, the alleged father, the child, a guardian for the child, and the Department of Social Services.

According to Westchester Matrimonial, a local divorce attorney, proceedings for paternity can be initiated at any time from when the mother becomes pregnant until the child turns 21. After the child's 21st birthday, it's too late to establish paternity, unless the father has already acknowledged paternity in writing or has already been providing support for the child.
