Kenai AK DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Kenai, Alaska 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)

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.

Kenai, AK - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

The Carlson Law Group, serving Kenai, explained why it's important for unmarried parents to establish paternity. "Establishing paternity is critical for many reasons," said the law firm. "First, the father may agree to support the child only to change his mind. Some benefits are available to the child only if paternity has been established. Establishing paternity can make a significant difference in a child's health, financial outlook, and personal identity."

Establishing Paternity in Kenai, AK

Paternity is the process of determining a child's legal father. After Kenai parents establish paternity, they can add the father's name to the birth certificate, and the father also obtains legal parental rights and responsibilities. In Kenai, married parents do not need to establish paternity because the husband automatically becomes the legal father. However, unmarried parents must establish paternity by signing an Affidavit of Paternity or by going to court. An Affidavit of Paternity is a voluntary form often signed at the hospital when the child is born. Parents can also find the form later at the local courthouse, located at 125 Trading Bay Rd in Kenai. If establishing paternity in court, either parent can file a Complaint to Establish Paternity. Once paternity is established, the father can seek visitation and custody orders.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Kenai, AK

DNA tests can be used as evidence in court cases establishing paternity. After taking a DNA test, the parents must submit the results to the court, either voluntarily or by court order. To request a court order, parents can file a Motion & Affidavit for Genetic (DNA) Testing or an Order for Genetic (DNA) Testing. Home DNA test kits are not accepted by the court; the court requires a qualified individual to collect DNA test samples and a qualified laboratory to analyze the test.
