Leesville LA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Leesville, Louisiana 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

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

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Leesville, LA

Leesville parents who need to establish paternity have access to the Louisiana Paternity Establishment Program through the Department of Children and Family Services. In cases where two Leesville parents are unmarried when their child is born, the paternity establishment process will be required to legally declare the child's biological father and grant the man parental rights.

Through the Louisiana Paternity Establishment Program, Leesville parents can complete an Acknowledgment of Paternity Affidavit at the hospital or through a Vernon Parish Child Support Services or Vital Statistics office location to easily establish paternity. Note that because this is a legally binding process, Leesville parents should first use DNA testing if the identity of the biological father is uncertain.

Disestablishing Paternity in Leesville, LA

In certain unfortunate circumstances, a parent may seek DNA testing after already establishing paternity and discover that the previously presumed father of their child, and the child's now legal father, is not their biological father. Because paternity has already been established, the incorrect father will need to disestablish paternity to have any child support obligations removed.

Under Louisiana ruling, a parent can revoke their acknowledgment within 60 days of signing the form by submitting a Revocation of Acknowledgment of Paternity form to the Vital Records Registry. If mistaken paternity is learned after this 60-day window, the only way to revoke a paternity establishment is through a court hearing, which may require additional legal assistance.

Paternity Programs in Leesville, LA

When a Leesville father is unable to establish paternity due to the inability to locate his child's mother, or if the mother refuses to establish paternity, it is recommended that he registers with the Louisiana Putative Father Registry as soon as possible. While this is not a method of establishing paternity, the registry allows a Leesville man to declare that he is the assumed father of a child. If the child is then involved in a legal adoption proceeding, he will be provided notice to potentially establish paternity via DNA testing and seek custody through the courts.
