Lanoka Harbor NJ DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lanoka Harbor, New Jersey 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

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

When a child is born to parents who are not married, it's important to take the required steps to establish paternity. Doing so creates many benefits for everyone involved.

According to attorneys at the New Jersey-based Weinberger Divorce and Family Law Group, once legal paternity is established, a child can begin receiving financial support from both parents. Establishing paternity also gives a child a greater sense of identity and allows them to access benefits based on both parents' records. This includes the ability to receive an inheritance and receive Social Security, veterans, and other benefits. After he is declared a child's legal father, a man can also be involved in the child's life by requesting both visitation and paternity rights.

How to Establish Paternity in Lanoka Harbor

According to the Ocean County-based Bronzino Law Firm, there are three primary ways for residents of Lanoka Harbor (and the rest of New Jersey) to establish paternity. The first is called "legal presumption." This occurs when a child is born to a woman who is married. In this case, the mother's husband is automatically presumed to be the child's legal father.

A couple who is not married but who agree about the identity of the father can establish paternity by filing a certificate of parentage with the New Jersey registrar. When this is processed, the father's name is also added to the child's birth certificate. Lastly, when there is a dispute over who the child's father is, an interested party can file a case in court. Generally, the courts will require a DNA test before making a ruling.

The Role of DNA in New Jersey Paternity Cases

When there is a question about the identity of a child's father, a DNA test will likely come into play. Parents can take a DNA test voluntarily or the court can order them to do so. For it to be admissible in the state of New Jersey, a DNA test must be administered at a state-approved facility and must show a 95% or higher probability of paternity.
