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.

Local DNA Testing for Lutz, FL
Law Offices of Roberta Kohn, P.A. serves Lutz, FL and Hillsborough County. The law firm describes common paternity cases by saying, “Paternity cases come about when a child is born to unmarried parents and the identity of the biological father is not known, or the biological father is known but paternal rights have not been established.” They explain there are legal issues involved with paternity cases such as father’s rights, child support, time-sharing, visitation, custody, and parental responsibilities. “In most cases, there are three types of clients in paternity disputes,” the law firm explains, “a mother who is trying to identify the father for child support purposes, an alleged father who denies relation to the child and claims no responsibility, and a purported father seeking to establish his parental rights.”
The law office continued by saying that DNA testing can determine the child’s biological father. “Parties may agree on a paternity test and the court will order a test in the event it determines that the test is in the best interest of the minor child.”
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Lutz, FL
Establishing paternity means you’re giving your child a legal father. Establishing paternity has benefits for the father, mother, and child. When the child has a legal father, he or she has access to medical information from both sides of the family, and access to medical benefits, life insurance, and inheritance. Also, the father’s name can be added to the birth certificate. Establishing paternity allows for a child support order and for visitation and custody rights.
In Lutz, FL, paternity does not need to be established if the parents are married when the child is born. If the parents are not married, paternity can be established by signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity form. If one parent will not sign the form, paternity can be established through the court system, and DNA testing may be ordered to prove paternity.
