DNA Test - Lawrenceville, Georgia

Lawrenceville GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lawrenceville, Georgia 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.

Our Lawrenceville DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Paternity vs. Legitimization in Lawrenceville

In Georgia, establishing paternity is the process of determining the identity of the child's biological father. This obliges him to pay child support. Legitimization takes things a step further, providing the father with parental rights, including the right to request custody and/or visitation. According to Lawrenceville father's rights attorneys at the Edwards Family Law group, once a child is legitimized, he or she has the same rights as a child who is born to married parents.

If a child is not legitimized, the mother has full rights, and the father has no say in the child's upbringing, such as his or her medical care, education, or religious affiliation. In Georgia, an unmarried father can establish paternity by signing the child's birth certificate, but this does not give him father's rights. To legitimize a child, a father can file a Petition for Legitimation in Superior Court in the county where the child's biological mother resides.

What Lawrenceville Residents Need to Know About Paternity Fraud

Unfortunately, paternity fraud can be a serious issue. Attorneys at the Lawrenceville-based Vayman & Teitelbaum, P.C. law firm explain that once paternity has been established, it's very difficult for a man to extricate himself from the associated obligations. To protect yourself from paternity fraud, their experts recommend refusing to sign any documents without representation. If there are any questions or misunderstandings, it's easier to not sign than to try to reverse a signed document. Addressing any potential fraud or paternity issues as soon as they are identified is also key. Often, there is a time limit for challenging paternity, so it's critical to take timely action. After a certain point, even a DNA paternity test may not be enough to disestablish paternity.

The Importance of Legitimizing a Child in Lawrenceville

While some effort is required to legitimize a child in Georgia, according to experts at the Lawrenceville-based Manely Law Firm, there are significant benefits to doing so. Not only does this give the father the right to request visitation and child support, but it also allows the child to receive an automatic inheritance from his or her legal father. In addition, the child benefits from the ability to have a relationship with the father and can receive Social Security and veteran's benefits based on the father's records.
