DNA Test – Hoboken, New Jersey

Hoboken NJ DNA Testing Locations

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

DNA Testing In The City Of Hoboken, NJ

Experts Say…

According to Aretsky Law Group, P.C., serving Hoboken, NJ and Hudson County, “Determining the paternity of a child is complex. As more and more children are born out of wedlock, mothers, fathers, and children are increasingly seeking to establish paternity legally.” The law firm explains that paternity must be established for the father to obtain rights and obligations to his child. “Child support, child custody, visitation, health insurance, and inheritance rights are only some of the issues associated with the paternity of a child.”

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Hoboken, NJ

Establishing paternity is the process of the biological father becoming the child’s legal father. In Hoboken, NJ, for a father to become the legal father and add his name on the birth certificate, both parents must submit a Certificate of Parentage form. Establishing paternity is an easy and free process if done voluntarily at the hospital when the child is born.

If a man isn’t sure that he’s the child’s father, he can request DNA testing to prove paternity. In this case, the parents should not complete the Certificate of Parentage form until DNA testing has been done.

If a man denies paternity or there are multiple alleged fathers, paternity may be determined through the court. The mother, alleged father, or child may begin an allegation of paternity to start the process. An alleged father may be ruled out as the biological father if the test shows less than a 95 percent probability that he’s the father, or if the court makes the determination based on evidence.

Once paternity is established, the father obtains responsibilities to the child such as child support and health insurance coverage.
