DNA Test - Los Banos, California

Los Banos CA DNA Testing Locations

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

Paternity Programs in Los Banos, CA

Unmarried Los Banos parents who must establish paternity following the birth of their child should seek assistance from the Parentage Opportunity Program (POP). This program is available to all Los Banos parents free of charge, so both can complete a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP) to quickly establish paternity and declare their child's legal father.

It's important to understand that establishing paternity creates a legal bond between a Los Banos child and father. If either parent holds any uncertainty about the paternity of the child, DNA testing services must first be used to accurately determine the biological father. If paternity is established with the incorrect father, he will still be held responsible for child support payments up until paternity is disestablished in Merced County Court.

Assistance Establishing Paternity in Los Banos, CA

When a Los Banos parent cannot be located or refuses to establish paternity, the assistance of the Merced County Family Court will be required to establish paternity. By filing a petition to establish paternity in Merced County Court, a judge can require the opposing parent to appear in court and conduct the necessary steps to establish paternity.

A court-ordered paternity establishment often includes the use of DNA paternity testing in support of the given claim. If the courts can accurately identify the biological father, he will then be declared a legal parent through the paternity establishment process. A judge can also assist with developing custody, visitation, and child support agreements if necessary during this time.

Experts in Los Banos, CA Say…

After DNA testing has been used to establish paternity in Merced County Family Court, a judge can work with Los Banos parents to develop child support agreements. According to Los Banos family law attorney Donald Owen Germino, federal and California legislation expects both parents to be held financially responsible for their children. However, the non-custodial parent often incurs a monthly child support mandate in support of their child's health care, schooling, and other activities.
