DNA Test - Lumberton, North Carolina

Lumberton NC DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lumberton, North Carolina 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

Lumberton, NC - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

The Miller Law Group, serving Lumberton, explains what it means to establish paternity. "Establishing paternity is a legal process for making sure that the biological father of the child is the legal father as well." The law group added, "When unmarried couples have a child, extra steps are needed to make sure their child's paternity is established. If paternity is not established, both parents may miss out on rights related to the minor child, such as custody and child support."

Establishing Paternity in Lumberton, NC

The easiest way for unmarried parents to establish paternity in Lumberton is to sign an Affidavit of Parentage, a voluntary form stating the child's legal father. Parents can sign the form at the hospital when the child is born or later at the local Health Department or Clerk of Court. The Robeson County Clerk of Court is located at 500 North Elm Street, Rm 101 in Lumberton. If two parents cannot agree to establish paternity voluntarily, they can take legal action and go to court. Once paternity is established, the parents can seek visitation, custody, and child support orders.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Lumberton, NC

If either parent doubts paternity, they should not sign an Affidavit of Parentage until obtaining DNA test results to determine the child's biological father. A DNA test uses blood or tissue samples and most commonly uses tissue from the inside of the child and father's cheeks. A DNA test can exclude a man as the child's father or determine the probability that he's the father with over 99% accuracy. DNA test results can help parents be certain of the father before voluntarily establishing paternity, or they can be used as evidence in paternity court cases.
