Hyannis MA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Hyannis, Massachusetts 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:

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 Hyannis DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Hyannis, MA - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Hyannis

In the state of Massachusetts, when a married couple has a child, the mother's husband is presumed to be the child's legal father. In this case, no action is needed. However, according to experts at The Law Offices of Heather M. Ward, which serves Hyannis and the surrounding area, unmarried parents must take steps to establish legal paternity.

To do this, both parents can sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form, which establishes legal rights for the father. If both parents are unable or unwilling to sign the form, either parent can petition the courts to establish legal paternity. In this case, the judge will typically order a DNA test before issuing a ruling.

Why Establish Legal Paternity?

Taking the time to establish a child's legal paternity creates significant benefits for both parents and for the child. Experts at the Law Offices of Dennis J. Conry, which serves clients in the Hyannis area, explain that there are many reasons to establish paternity. A child benefits by getting financial support from both parents and being able to access their full family medical history. In addition, once paternity is established, the child can receive an inheritance from his or her father and receive life and health insurance, Social Security, and Veterans' benefits based on the father's records.

The mother can benefit from being able to receive financial support and insurance coverage for the child. Once legal paternity has been established, fathers can have a relationship with the child, have input on how the child is raised, and can also petition the courts for custody and visitation rights.

How to File a Complaint for Paternity

When filing a Voluntary Acknowledgment for Paternity is not an option, it may be necessary to file a Complaint to Establish Paternity. This is known as a parentage action and it is filed in the county where one or both parents reside. In Hyannis County, paternity actions are filed in Barnstable Probate and Family Court, which is located at 3195 Main Street, Barnstable, MA.
