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

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Linthicum Heights, MD

Establishing paternity allows the child access to benefits such as medical insurance, social security, veteran's benefits, life insurance, inheritance, and access to medical histories from both sides of the family. Paternity is also needed for child support, custody, and visitation orders. In Linthicum Heights, MD, paternity may be established through an Affidavit of Parentage or court order.

If there is any question about who the father is, DNA testing can be used to prove paternity for child custody purposes. If DNA testing is not enough to prove paternity, a court order will be issued to determine the child's legal father.

A court proceeding can be avoided if both parents agree about the child's father and sign a voluntary Affidavit of Parentage, which is usually signed at the hospital when the child is born. The legal form should not be signed if there is more than one potential father. The alleged father has a right to DNA testing prior to signing the form.

Experts Say...

According to The Burton Firm, LLC in Maryland, "For couples who are not married, the custody will most often be awarded to the biological mother. If the father of the child is not listed on the birth certificate he will be required to file a petition and prove the paternity."
