DNA Test - Kenosha, Wisconsin

Kenosha WI DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Kenosha, Wisconsin 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

Kenosha, Wisconsin - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Kenosha, Wisconsin

Unmarried Kenosha parents will need to establish paternity when they have a child together, and there are three ways to do so. Parents can sign Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement (VPA), go to court, or take a DNA test.

If parents opt to sign VPA, the court can order child support, and no hearing will be necessary to establish paternity first. However, this document does not give the father any custody rights, so parents usually sign a VPA when they have a good relationship but are not married.

Sometimes, people have disagreements about paternity or are unsure who the biological father is. In these cases, parents often go to court so the judge can establish paternity. A DNA test is usually involved in determining whether an alleged father is a biological father.

The third option is determining paternity by genetic testing. Although genetic testing is often involved in courts, the 2019 Senate Bill 158 allows parents to use genetic testing to establish paternity outside the court as well. Wisconsin parents can establish paternity without having a court hearing if the required conditions are satisfied.

Kenosha, Wisconsin: Benefits of establishing paternity

After paternity is established in Kenosha, children can get financial support from both parents, increasing the quality of the child's life. This can also help the child develop a better relationship with both parents, create an emotional bond, and allow both parents to participate in crucial decisions like education, health, and religious upbringing.

When Kenosha parents establish paternity, their child can inherit from both. The child can also receive benefits like Social Security, health insurance, or veteran's benefits. Knowing both parents and having access to their medical history information can also save the children from future medical complications because they will better understand the family's genetic risks.
