DNA Test - Lehigh Acres, Florida

Lehigh Acres FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lehigh Acres, Florida 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. 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 Lehigh Acres DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Lehigh Acres, Florida - DNA Testing

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

In the state of Florida, when a child is born to unmarried parents, steps must be taken to establish the child's legal paternity. According to the law offices of Luis E. Insignares, a paternity law firm serving Lehigh Acres and the surrounding area, there are many potential benefits of doing so. This includes:

The mother's right to seek child support payments (also retroactively).
The child's right to receive an inheritance from the father's estate.
The parent's rights to establish custody and time-sharing agreements.
The child's right to receive benefits under the father's healthcare plan.
The child's right to receive Social Security and/or Veteran's benefits based on the father's record.

Once paternity has been established, the father enjoys the legal rights of parenthood, the child can have more stability in his or her life, and both parents are legally responsible for providing financial support.

Who Can Legally Request a Paternity Test?

A DNA paternity test is often used to resolve disputes regarding a child's biological paternity. Anyone can voluntarily submit to a paternity test, however, for a test to be ordered by the courts, it must be requested by an interested party. The Morris Law Firm, a child paternity attorney serving the Lehigh Acres area, states that the following individuals have the right to petition the courts for a DNA paternity test:

The child's biological mother
The assumed biological father
A man who can show evidence that supports his belief that he is the child's biological father
A man who is disputing allegations that he is the child's biological father
Grandparents or other blood relatives of the child, in the case that the child's mother has passed away and there are questions regarding whether a specific individual is the child's biological father

Contesting Established Paternity

There are times when a man who has been deemed to be a child's biological father has a reason to contest this assumption. According to Lehigh Acres fathers' rights attorneys at the Kao Law Firm, a court-ordered DNA paternity test is nearly 100% accurate and can quickly resolve the dispute. However, if a man has been acting as the child's father prior to taking a DNA test, the courts are reluctant to release him of his duties, even if it turns out that he is not the child's biological father. This is one reason why it is critical to take a DNA test as soon as possible if there is any question about the child's biological paternity.
