DNA Test - Holbrook, New York

Holbrook NY DNA Testing Locations

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

DNA Paternity Testing in Holbrook, NY

Experts Say...

Susan A. Kassell, P.C. is a father's rights attorney that serves Holbrook, NY and Suffolk County. She explains father's rights by stating, "When establishing child support, child custody, and visitation rights, New York courts are required to view both the mother and father equally. Because the traditional roles of the 20th century have shifted and now both men and women are working and providing for their families, fathers' rights have evolved to protect biological fathers from losing significant time with their loved ones." Kassell said that the state of New York requires the child's best interest to be decided by the court. "Despite statutory provisions," she said, "mothers are still favored and fathers are left with little to no visitation or custody rights."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Holbrook, NY

Establishing paternity means giving a child a legal father, which also gives the father certain legal rights and responsibilities. These responsibilities include having a say in important decisions being made for the child. By having a legal father, the child gains rights to inheritance, child support payments, health insurance, and other benefits.

In Holbrook, NY, if two parents are married when the child is born, paternity does not need to be established and the husband is assumed to be the child's father. If the parents are not married, they need to establish paternity. The parents can choose to voluntarily sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form to establish paternity. If the parents cannot agree to sign the form, paternity can be established through the courts. Either parent can file a paternity petition in Family Court.

If the parents cannot agree about who the father is, the court will order DNA testing to prove paternity. If the DNA test shows that the alleged father is not the biological father, the petition will be dismissed. If the DNA test shows that the man is likely the father, an Order of Filiation will be ordered.
