DNA Test - Hemet, California

Hemet CA DNA Testing Locations

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

Why Establish Paternity in Hemet, CA?

When a Hemet child is born to two unmarried parents, the paternity establishment process will be used to legally declare the child's biological father and grant him his parental rights. This process will be necessary if the man wishes to have his name placed on the child's birth certificate or if he wishes to seek custody or visitation rights in court.

Establishing paternity is also heavily important for the well-being of a child. By establishing paternity, a parent can seek monthly child support services from the non-custodial parent to help support the child. Furthermore, a child will have two legal guardians, which expands their access to various benefits, such as inheritance, military benefits, and health insurance coverage.

Paternity Programs in Hemet, CA

To help streamline the paternity establishment process for Hemet parents, the state of California developed the Paternity Opportunity Program (POP). This voluntary program allows parents to establish parentage free of charge rather than through lengthy and costly court processes. To participate in the program, both parents must agree upon and have full confidence in the given paternity claim.

Through the program, parents can sign and submit a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP) form in the hospital following a child's birth or through a Riverside County Child Support Services location. Keep in mind that if there is any sort of doubt in a child's paternity, either Hemet parent should first seek DNA paternity testing services to accurately determine the biological father.

Paternity Laws and Regulations in Hemet, CA

Under California Family Code Section 7571, all hospitals, birthing centers, and clinics must provide unmarried parents with the opportunity to voluntarily establish paternity after the birth of a child. In Hemet, a Declaration of Paternity will be offered to the parents to declare the legal father and place his name on the birth certificate. This form must be signed by both parents in the presence of an Authorized Witness staff member and properly submitted to California Child Support Services.
