Types of DNA Tests at our Lafayette, Indiana clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

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

Lafayette, Indiana - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Lafayette law firm, Ball Eggleston, P.C., explains what it means to establish paternity. "Establishing paternity is legal jargon for assuming fatherhood and all the rights and obligations that come with it," says the law firm. "Men who have established paternity are generally entitled to parenting time, which allows them to play an active role in their children's lives, regardless of their relationship with the other parent." The law firm also says that paternity grants certain rights to the child. "For example, they may be entitled to health insurance coverage, educational stipends, and/or ongoing financial support under one or more government programs," the law firm explains. The firm also says that if the parents are not together, establishing paternity allows for child support orders to ensure the child lives with the same standard of living in both parents' homes.

Establishing Paternity in Lafayette, IN

Establishing paternity means giving the child a legal father. Once paternity is established, the father obtains parental rights and responsibilities to the child. Children gain a sense of identity by having both parents and also obtain access to certain benefits, like social security, life and health insurance, and veterans' benefits. Parents that are married or gave birth within 300 days before the marriage ended do not need to establish paternity; in this case, the husband is presumed the child's legal father. But in Lafayette, IN, unmarried parents must establish paternity. Parents can establish paternity by signing a paternity affidavit or by going to court. If the parents are unsure of the child's biological father, they should not sign an affidavit until a DNA test proves paternity.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Lafayette, IN

In Lafayette, if parents establish paternity in court, the judge may order DNA testing to determine the child's biological father. The DNA test results will help the judge decide whether to establish paternity. Once DNA test results prove that a man is the father, paternity can be established.
