DNA Test - Livermore, California

Livermore CA DNA Testing Locations

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

Livermore, California - DNA Testing

DNA Test Reunites Livermore Woman with Birth Mother

Livermore resident Kelly Franco had been searching for her birth mother since her teen years but had not had much luck until a DNA test changed everything. After 52 years, she found her biological mother, who had been living in Oklahoma. The two were first introduced during an emotional, tearful phone call and later met in person. Her mother, Dorothy Fenske, had also been searching for her daughter. When asked about the reunion, she said, "I am just tickled to death... I can die in peace now."

California's Presumption of Paternity

When a child is born to married parents, the state of California's "presumption of paternity" applies. According to attorneys at Fishel Law Firm, a family law group serving Livermore and the surrounding area, a mother's husband is assumed to be a child's biological father if they were married at the time of conception. If a couple gets married after conception but before the child is born, the same presumption applies.

An Unmarried Couple's Guide to Establishing Parentage

Unmarried parents can establish paternity (also called parentage) and enjoy the same parental rights that are automatically given to married couples. Attorneys at the Law Offices of C. Lee Hewitt, which serves residents in Livermore and the surrounding area, note that the courts cannot rule on important things like a child's custody, the parent's time-sharing schedule, and child support payments until legal paternity has been established.

In many cases, this can be done by filing paperwork, known as a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity. However, if there is a dispute about the identity of the child's biological father, a DNA paternity test may be ordered. In some cases, a presumption of paternity arises if a man has accepted a child into his home. Consulting with a family law attorney can help all parties involved determine the best option for handling the critical task of legally establishing a child's paternity.
