Kansas City KS DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Kansas City, Kansas 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.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Kansas City, KS

In Kansas City, KS, if a child is born to two married parents, the father is the child’s legal father and paternity will not need to be established.

If a child is born to two unmarried parents, paternity will need to be established in order to pursue visitation or custody rights. This can be done voluntarily by both parents signing an affidavit. If this legal document is signed by both parents at the hospital when the child is born, the father’s name can go on the birth certificate.

If the mother and alleged father cannot agree on who the father is, or if there is any question, the court may decide on paternity and also give orders for child support or visitation. In this case, the court will most likely order DNA testing to prove paternity.

Experts Say…

Mathews Group, a law office that serves Kansas City and Kansas, stresses the importance of establishing paternity by saying, “The legal question of paternity asks who the biological father of a particular child is. Establishing this connection is important for many reasons. A father and his son or daughter have certain legal obligations and rights because of their parent-child relationship. For example, the father (and the mother) is required to provide child support and the child has the right to inherit property from his or her father, to certain Social Security and insurance benefits, to bring certain lawsuits like one for wrongful death and more. On the other hand, the father (and the mother) has the right to spend time with his minor child, with a few exceptions. A parent may also be eligible to claim a child as a dependent on a tax return… Practically, knowing who your biological father is can be important from a medical standpoint so that genetic or family medical traits are known.”
