DNA Test – Linthicum, Maryland

Linthicum MD DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Linthicum, Maryland 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.

Local DNA Testing for Linthicum, MD

Experts Say…

Alan L. Billian, P.A., of Maryland, explains voluntary assumed paternity and involuntary paternity. In Linthicum, MD, paternity will be assumed in a number of circumstances, such as:

If a child is born to two married parents.
If the parents get married after the child is born.
The father makes an attempt to marry the mother after the child’s birth.
An acknowledgment of paternity is signed and filed.
The father supports the child, welcomes the child into his home, and develops a relationship with the child.

In some cases, paternity will be established involuntarily, with a paternity lawsuit against the alleged father. Billian stated, “The father must appear in court and submit to a DNA test. These DNA blood tests (are) 99% accurate and if paternity is established, the father will be required to pay child support and the father will have established paternity.”

Billian went on to explain the significance of establishing paternity by saying, “The significance of establishing paternity is that the father now has rights to visitation in Maryland. This means that, excluding a few circumstances, the father can be granted access to his child through visitation in some format.” “The establishment of paternity also means child support payments must be made in accordance with the court’s ruling,” he said.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Linthicum, MD

If a father refuses to establish paternity voluntarily, paternity can be established through the court, and DNA testing for paternity may be ordered. DNA testing involves cheek swabs from the mother, alleged father, and child. The DNA test can exclude a man as the father or show a probability that he’s the father. In Linthicum, MD, if the test shows a 97.3 percent probability a man is the child’s father, a hearing or trial may be scheduled to determine paternity.
