DNA Test - Heber City, Utah

Heber City UT DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Heber City, Utah 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 Heber City DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing Paternity in Utah

The word "paternity" means fatherhood. When a child is born to a married couple, the mother's husband is automatically considered the child's legal father. According to the Utah courts, this gives both the mother and the father equal rights and responsibilities regarding the child under the law.

If a mother is unwed, there are three primary ways to establish paternity:

Both parents can sign a voluntary declaration of paternity form.
If a mother files for child support and paternity is verified, administrative paternity can be established through the Office of Recovery Services (ORS).
Either parent, the child, or the State of Utah can initiate a case in court to establish paternity.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

The Utah Department of Human Services explains some of the most important benefits of establishing paternity. This includes:

The child is able to receive financial support from both parents, even if they are not married.
Since the parents provide a child with citizenship/nationality, if one parent is not from the U.S. establishing paternity can give the child important rights.
The child will have legal rights to benefits under the father's record, including Social Security, veteran's benefits, and the right to receive an inheritance.
The father will have the right to have a say in how the child is raised and can also petition for visitation and/or custody.

Paternity and DNA Testing

When there's a question regarding the identity of a child's father, a DNA paternity test is often used to prove biological paternity. If one party won't agree to submit to a DNA test, in Utah, the other party can file a Motion for Genetic Testing, requesting that the courts order them to take the test. If there are multiple possible fathers, the courts can rule that they all need to be tested at once or that one is tested following a negative result from the first potential father.
