The young women you swabbed us for the test could not have been any more pleasant. That really helped in an otherwise stressful situation. Very nice individual.

DNA Test – Louisville, Kentucky

Louisville KY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Louisville, Kentucky 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:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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 Louisville DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

DNA Paternity Testing for ’90 Day FiancĂ©’ Stars

Marrying someone after just 90 days is an interesting concept — one that reality show ’90 Day Fiancé’ set out to explore. Paul Staehle, from Louisville, and Brazilian native Karine Martins are two of the stars. They were delighted when Karine become pregnant, especially since she had previously suffered several miscarriages. However, after the child was born in Brazil while Karine was spending time there, Staehle insisted on getting a paternity test to make sure he was the father.

On television, he confronted her and shared his suspicions about her behavior. The show’s audience largely condemned him for the way he spoke to his pregnant fiance. But soon afterwards, pictures of her with another man surfaced on social media, supporting his allegations.

The ramifications of finding out the paternity of a child born to a presumably monogamous couple are always fraught with issues, ranging from the emotional to the legal. But in this case, the bar was even higher, as the child’s presumptive U.S. citizenship was on the line pending the outcome fo the test.

Since American citizenship is by “birth or blood”, and this child was born abroad, if Staehle was not the father, then the child would not be American. Alas, the DNA test showed that Staehle was in fact the father, and it seems they are raising the boy in Louisville.

Anna Nicole Smith Custody Battle

Larry Birkhead proudly attends the Kentucky Derby in Louisville each year with his daughter, Dannielynn Hope. If Dannielynn’s name rings a bell, it is probably because her mother was the late model and actress, Anna Nicole Smith. Birkhead met Smith after her husband, J. Howard Marshall, passed away. She had hired Birkhead, a photographer, for a joint project, and they soon became romantically involved, although they kept it in secret.

Smith became pregnant during this period of time, but she named her attorney, Howard K. Stern, as the father of her child. Soon afterwards, Smith and Stern got married. But sadly, Anna Nicole Smith died of a prescription drug overdose just five months after her baby, Dannielynn, was born.

Birkhead, who suspected he was Danielynn’s father all along, got a DNA test to prove it. As a result, he was awarded full custody of Dannielynn, who was shown by the results of the paternity test to be his biological daughter. The DNA test brought clarity to a complicated situation and led to truly life changing events for the parties involved.

Laws Surrounding Establishment of Paternity in Kentucky

If the parents of a child are not married when the baby is born, either parent, or a man who suspects he may be the parent, may file a paternity case. In Louisville, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services may also submit a paternity case to the court.

These filings often leads to a DNA test being required to prove if a man is the biological father. Typically, legal matters like child support are decided after the paternity testing has been completed.
