DNA Test - La Habra, California

La Habra CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our La Habra, California 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

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.

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results. 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 La Habra DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

La Habra, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in La Habra, CA

Paternity establishment is crucial for children born to unmarried parents, ensuring they receive the same benefits and legal recognition as children born to married couples. In La Habra, California, there are multiple avenues to establish paternity, depending on the circumstances.

Voluntarily Establishing Paternity in La Habra

The easiest way to establish paternity in La Habra is by signing the Declaration of Paternity at the hospital when the child is born. This voluntary agreement legally recognizes the alleged father as the child's legal father. However, if there are any doubts, many people choose not to sign the form, as it is a legally binding document. In such cases, many people choose to take a DNA test first or to establish paternity through court.

Court Proceedings and DNA Testing

When doubts or disputes arise regarding paternity, many people choose to establish paternity through the court. The court may order a DNA test to establish the biological relationship between the alleged father and the child. DNA testing is a reliable and quick procedure, often conducted through a non-invasive cheek swab. The samples are sent to a laboratory, and once the results are available, they are presented to the judge. If paternity is established, the judge may also determine custody, child support, and visitation hours if necessary.

La Habra, California: Disputing paternity

In cases where an individual wishes to dispute paternity after signing the Declaration of Paternity, certain guidelines apply. If less than 60 days have passed since signing the Declaration of Paternity, then a Declaration of Paternity Rescission can be submitted to revoke paternity. However, if more than 60 days have elapsed, legal recourse through the court system is necessary. Disputing paternity often requires proving non-biological fatherhood through a DNA test. It's important to note that challenging paternity can be complex, as legal fatherhood may still be established even if there is no biological connection. In such situations, people often seek advice from a knowledgeable attorney.
