Types of DNA Tests at our Lindenhurst, New York clinics:

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

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

Establishing Paternity in Lindenhurst, NY

In the state of New York, establishing paternity refers to the process of declaring a child's legal father. This process must be completed by Lindenhurst parents who are not married at the time of their child's birth to provide the biological father with his legal rights. This process must also be completed if the father wishes to seek custody or if either parent wishes to request monthly child support services.

The easiest way to establish paternity in New York is by completing an Acknowledgment of Parentage (AOP) at the hospital following a child's birth. Due to the legally binding nature of this process, if a Lindenhurst parent does not have full confidence in the correct paternity of a child, it's essential they first use DNA testing to confirm the biological father to avoid any later complications.

Paternity Laws and Regulation in Lindenhurst, NY

A Lindenhurst parent may learn after having already established paternity that the previously presumed legal father of a child is actually not the biological father. Regardless of this new discovery, the legal bond created by the establishment of paternity makes the previously declared father still responsible for any child support obligations up until paternity is disestablished.

Under New York Family Court Act 516-A, a Lindenhurst parent can file a petition with Suffolk County Family Court to rescind a paternity acknowledgment within 60 days of the original signing. Following this 60-day mark, those seeking the disestablishment must present proof of paternity fraud, duress, or material mistake and DNA paternity testing results to have the legal establishment removed.

Paternity Programs in Lindenhurst, NY

The state of New York runs a Putative Father Registry to help men who have fathered a child out of wedlock preserve their paternal rights. While this is not a method of establishing paternity, Lindenhurst fathers can register with the program after they have filed a notice to claim paternity.

Once registered with the program, a Lindenhurst father will receive notice of any court proceeding involving his potential child including adoption, guardianship, and custody hearings. From here, they may be able to seek custody in court by establishing paternity with the use of DNA paternity testing.
