DNA Test - Hollywood, Florida

Hollywood FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Hollywood, Florida 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.

Hollywood, Florida – DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Hollywood, FL

Hollywood parents who are not married at the time of their child's birth must be aware of the importance of establishing paternity. By establishing paternity, a couple legally declares the identity of the child's biological father and grants the Florida man his paternal rights and responsibilities. A legal establishment of paternity is also required for either parent to seek child support services.

In the state of Florida, the simplest way to legally establish paternity is by having both parents complete an Affidavit of Paternity. This completely voluntary form can be signed by both parents at a hospital or birthing facility following a child's birth. It's essential to note that an Affidavit of Paternity is a legally binding form and that failure to complete DNA testing to confirm paternity prior to the establishment can result in legal complications in the future.

Navigating Uncertain Paternity in Hollywood, FL

Moving forward with the paternity establishment process with any bit of paternity uncertainty can cause legal troubles at a later date. If a presumed Hollywood father learns that he is in fact not the biological father, he may encounter difficulties in court when looking to remove any child support obligation and revoke the paternity establishment.

In the event that there is any uncertainty over who a child's biological father is, it is extremely important to first seek DNA testing services before moving forward with signing the paternity affidavit. By properly confirming a child's biological father, parents can confidently move forward with the paternity establishment process as well as any child support and custody agreements.

Assistance Establishing Paternity in Hollywood, FL

With or without paternity certainty, a Hollywood parent may sometimes encounter difficulties having the other parent agree to establish paternity. This will prevent the parent from seeking monthly child support services.

When one parent does not agree to establish paternity, the other must file a petition to establish paternity through a Broward County Family Court. Filing a court-ordered effort to establish paternity will allow a judge to issue a summons for the opposing parent party to complete DNA testing. Once testing confirms the child's father, then paternity can be legally established.
