DNA Test - Leesburg, Virginia

Leesburg VA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Leesburg, Virginia clinics:

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

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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

Leesburg, VA - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Leesburg law office Sevila, Saunders, Huddleston & White, P.C., explained why unmarried parents should establish paternity. "Just because a father chooses not to marry the mother of his child doesn't mean he doesn't want to be a part of his child's life," said the law office. "He may want to seek joint custody or visit with his child on a regular basis. He may even have a desire to support his child financially. In order to gain access to these parental rights, however, a father must first establish paternity."

Establishing Paternity in Leesburg, VA

Establishing paternity means giving a child born to unmarried parents a legal father. In Leesburg, the easiest way to establish paternity is by signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP), which is a voluntary form stating the child's father. Signing an AOP also ensures the father's name will be added to the child's original birth certificate. If both parents cannot agree to establish paternity voluntarily, they can go to court. Leesburg parents can file a petition at the Loudoun Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, located at 18 East Market Street in Leesburg.

Once paternity is established, the father's name is added to the birth certificate, and fathers can seek visitation and custody. Fathers also obtain other parental responsibilities, including financial support.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Leesburg, VA

DNA testing is necessary in cases when the parents are uncertain of paternity, or the judge might order a DNA test if establishing paternity in court. Testing professionals obtain DNA samples by swabbing inside the cheeks of the child and the alleged father. DNA samples are analyzed in a certified laboratory and can disprove a man as the child's father or show up to a 99% probability that he's the biological dad.
