DNA Test – Lees Summit, Missouri

Lees Summit MO DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lees Summit, Missouri 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:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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 Lees Summit DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

DNA Test Helps Lee’s Summit Woman Reunite with Father

For 35 years, Lee’s Summit resident Tiffany Dow wondered why she looked different from the rest of her family. She had been told her father was her mother’s ex-boyfriend. However, both he and her mother had blonde hair and blue eyes, while she was dark-featured.

The mystery was solved when a DNA test result showed that another man was her biological father. Doug Davidian, who is Armenian, had met Tiffany’s mother on a road trip in 1971 and didn’t see her again after their brief encounter. Once Doug and Tiffany connected, they immediately clicked and were surprised by their similarities. The two met in person when Doug flew to Lee’s Summit to meet her. Since then, they’ve met each other’s families and continue to stay in touch.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

According to Lee’s Summit paternity attorney Altieri Gilmore LLP, there are many reasons to establish legal paternity in the state of Missouri. Not only does doing so give a child a sense of identity, but it also gives the father important rights. This includes having a role in making important decisions regarding the child’s life and being able to spend time with the child.

Paternity must be established before courts can make decisions regarding child support, visitation, and custody. Establishing paternity also allows for a child to receive the father’s insurance benefits, an inheritance, Social Security and Veteran’s benefits, and more.

How to Establish Paternity in Lee’s Summit, Missouri

When a child is born to unmarried parents, they must take specific steps to establish legal paternity. As Lee’s Summit attorney Ronald L. Jurgeson states, “even if your name is on the birth certificate, your legal rights are difficult to enforce unless you have drafted a parenting plan that is approved by a judge.”

According to the Missouri Department of Social Services, parents can establish paternity by signing and filing an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity or receiving a court order naming the man as the child’s legal father.
