DNA Test - Huntington Beach, California

Huntington Beach CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Huntington Beach, California 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

Huntington Beach, California - DNA Testing

Woman Discovers She Lives Next Door to Half-Brother She Never Knew

After her grandmother passed away, Huntington Beach resident Laureen Clark began trying to learn more about her family roots. She took a DNA test on a whim and was shocked to receive a message from a "close relative" named Josh, who believed he may have been her first cousin. Both were shocked to learn that Josh was actually her father's son.

After connecting, they learned that they had grown up in the same city and attended schools in the same district for their entire lives. Even more shocking, they currently lived only one building apart. One year after making the discovery, they continue to get to know each other and build their relationship.

DNA Test Reunites Huntington Beach Man with Mother After 33 Years

When Laurie DeVicariis took a DNA test to learn more about her family medical history, she never expected to find her sister's son. She was shocked when Jason Hyman reached out to her and said, "I think you're my aunt." Hyman, who had been given up for adoption at birth, had given up on finding his birth family and was surprised to make the connection.

Eventually, they scheduled a time to meet, and Hyman was reunited with his mother, aunt, and cousins. During the meeting, the family spent hours getting to know each other and making up for lost time.

Establishing Paternity in Huntington Beach

The state of California recognizes that both parents of a child have equal rights to make decisions about their child's future—whether they are married or not. However, according to Orange County Father's Rights Attorneys at Alkam Law Offices, unmarried fathers must still take steps to establish paternity before they can request equal rights to be involved in their child's life. This can be done by signing a voluntary declaration of paternity or by obtaining a court order. If there is a dispute about a man's paternity, the courts may require a DNA test before issuing a ruling.
