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.

Establishing paternity in Lansing, Michigan
If parents in Lansing, Michigan, are married, they do not need to worry about establishing paternity. On the other hand, unwed parents must establish it. They have two options in Michigan. Parents can voluntarily sign an Affidavit of Parentage, which means both parents agree about who the biological father is.
Alternatively, they can go to the local family court, where the judge will order DNA testing for the alleged father and the baby to prove whether he is or is not the birth father. The judge can then establish paternity based on the DNA test results. The father’s name cannot be on the child’s birth certificate without establishing paternity.
In Michigan, parents can establish paternity right after a baby is born at the hospital, the local Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the Registrar’s Office, or online by completing the Affidavit of Parentage form.
