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.

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 Inglewood DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Inglewood, California – DNA Testing
Establishing paternity in Inglewood, California
If parents are married when the baby is born, the law automatically assumes the husband is the father, so there is no question or need to establish paternity. On the other hand, if parents are unwed, they must establish paternity so that the father has the same legal rights and responsibilities as the mother. In Inglewood, California, parents have two options for establishing paternity. Parents can voluntarily sign a declaration of parentage, or if either party does not cooperate or is unsure about paternity, they can go to court.
When parents choose to go court, the judge will likely ask the man and the child to take a DNA test. This is a quick and painless method of proving paternity. Most often, they do a cheek swab from both the child and the man to determine the probability of their father-child relationship. Once the judge gets the DNA results back, paternity can be established, and the judge can make additional decisions about visitation, custody, and child support.
Inglewood, California: Denial of paternity
If a man is unsure whether he is the father, he has every right to request a DNA test, even if it is a husband who is married to the child’s mother. DNA testing can be used to prove the child and father’s relationship. People always inherit some of the DNA code from the mother and father, so when the DNA test is taken, it can quickly and accurately establish their relationship.
DNA tests are typically done as a cheek swab by rubbing a sterile cotton squab inside the mouth of the individual. An expert then examines the DNA specimen to determine the relationship. It is important to note that at-home DNA tests are generally not accepted in a court of law. Health Street offers legal DNA tests as well as at-home DNA tests.
Experts in Inglewood, CA Say…
After establishing paternity, two parents may want to establish a custody agreement so that their child has time with both parents. If two parents cannot settle on a plan themselves, Inglewood Family Law Attorney Tobie Waxman recommends they seek legal help and present themselves in court. By doing so, a judge can then appoint a certified family counselor who both parents will be required to see to assess current living situations and help construct a fair plan for both parents and child.
