DNA Test - Jacksonville, Florida

Jacksonville FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Jacksonville, Florida 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:

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

Jacksonville, Florida - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Jacksonville, FL

An unmarried couple with a baby may need a paternity judgment—a court order signed by a judge declaring a man is a legal father. This judgment allows a man to claim legal rights for the child and is necessary for child support, a time-sharing schedule, or a parenting plan. A paternity judgment is unnecessary if the marriage occurs after the child is born.

Of course, if both parties decide to sign an acknowledgment of paternity in the presence of a notary or two witnesses, the court will find that paternity has been established.

Importance of establishing paternity in Jacksonville, Florida

Establishing paternity is essential for multiple reasons, such as:

Child support orders can help the mother to raise the child.
The alleged father may be able to provide health insurance benefits for the child.
The child may be entitled to other benefits, such as disability or military benefits.
The child may be entitled to inheritance.

In some situations, the father wants to take an active part in the child's life, which is why he needs paternity to be established. Establishing paternity can also help to gain custody or visitation rights. He can also make decisions about upbringing or, for example, if any health care decisions occur.

Jacksonville, FL: Challenging paternity

If either party is unsure about the child's biological father, they may deny the paternity and request a DNA test. The court will usually order a DNA test for the mother, the child, and the alleged father to determine whether or not he is the biological father. Once the results of the tests and any other evidence are presented at the final hearing, the judge will decide how paternity will be established.
