DNA Test - Longview, Texas

Longview TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Longview, Texas clinics:

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

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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

DNA Testing Longview TX

Establishing paternity voluntarily in Longview, TX

Married parents who have a baby in Longview do not need to establish paternity, as the law automatically considers the husband the legal father. Unwed parents who agree on the biological father's identity can establish paternity by signing the Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). Most often, parents sign the AOP at the hospital after the child is born. However, it is important to refrain from signing an AOP if there are disagreements or uncertainties about who the biological father is. An AOP is a legally binding form that establishes the legal father. When parents disagree, they often seek paternity testing or go through the court to establish paternity.

Paternity testing Longview TX

Another option is going to court, where the judge will likely ask the alleged father and the child to take a paternity test. The test is often requested to prove the father-child relationship, so there are no disagreements or doubts about it. If the test results return positive, the judge may consider this while determining custody, child support, and visitation hours.

DNA test reunites kidnapped daughter with her family after 51 years

In 1971, Melissa was just a 22-month-old baby when her babysitter kidnaped her. Melissa was raised as Melanie and lived in Texas her whole life without knowing she was abducted. So when her family reached out to her and told her the truth through social media, based on the DNA test they did, she thought it was a scam. However, she did ask the person who raised her, and she confirmed it. Eventually, they met and did further official DNA testing, which proved Melanie was, in fact, their daughter.

The family stated that DNA testing was the only reason that they were able to locate their long-lost daughter. Melissa said her mother did everything she could, and she trusted a woman who was hired to take care of her and never thought she could have been kidnapped. Her sister said their mother lived all her life with guilt and even accusations from others that she hurt or killed the baby. Now that the truth has been established, they are grateful to have her back.
