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.

Hendersonville, Tennessee - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Hendersonville, TN

Unwed parents in Tennessee have two options for establishing paternity. If they agree on paternity, they can both sign the Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity (VAP). Signing and filing this document means making the father the child's legal father. Parents often sign the VAP at the hospital after the baby is born, but they can also do it later at the local health department, Office of Vital Records, or the child support office. Parents must ensure they sign this document before a notary public.

Another way of establishing paternity is going to court and having the judge issue an order of parentage. A petition must be filed with the court to begin the court proceedings. It is common for the judge to order a DNA test to determine if the alleged father is the biological father. If a legal child-father relationship is established, the court can also issue orders for visitation, custody, and child support.

Hendersonville, Tennessee: Reasons to establish paternity

Even if parents are in a stable relationship and co-parent effectively, establishing legal paternity can provide valuable benefits to the child. Some examples of possible benefits can include:

Social Security

Veterans benefits

Inheritance from both parents

Without legal paternity, both parents can experience significant challenges. The father has no rights to visitation or custody of the child, so his role in the child's life can be limited. The mother has no right to pursue child support, and could find herself shouldering the financial burden.
