Lynnwood WA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Lynnwood, Washington 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:

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.

Lynnwood, WA DNA Testing

What Are DNA Tests Used For?

DNA tests, also called genetic tests, prove or exclude family relationships, including father-to-son, siblings, and half-siblings. A DNA test in Lynnwood, WA is used for legal reasons, such as paternity, child support and custody cases, or to add the biological father's name to the child's birth certificate.

Paternity Testing

Paternity testing determines the biological relationship between a father and a child and is often used to establish their legal relationship. A DNA test in Lynnwood, WA may be used by a mother who wants to confirm her child's father or a man who wants to prove that he is the father.

Child Custody and Support

Child support cases may require DNA testing to prove that a man is the child's father before the court issues child support, custody, or visitation orders.

Changing a Birth Certificate

A birth certificate typically cannot include a man's name if the parents are not married when the child is born. The parents must first establish paternity to add the father's name to the birth certificate, and many times a DNA test is first required to determine paternity. The court may also require DNA testing if another man claims to be the child's biological father.

How DNA Tests Are Analyzed

DNA specimens are usually collected using cheek swabs from the individuals being tested. DNA test samples are sent to a certified lab that extracts the DNA for a doctor to analyze and determine the probability of a biological relationship. If the person cannot give a sample from the cheek, hair follicles or alternative specimens can also be used.

How Long Does It Take to Receive DNA Test Results?

DNA test results arrive quickly, depending on the specimen type and test provider.

  1. Cheek swab DNA test results take up to a week for results after specimen collection.
  2. Hair follicle DNA test results arrive up to two weeks after the specimen was collected.

Establishing Paternity in Washington

In Washington, if a child is born to married parents, the law presumes the husband to be the child's legal father. However, unmarried parents must establish paternity for the father and child to have a legal relationship. Parents can establish paternity voluntarily by signing an Acknowledgement of Parentage form. If the parents cannot agree to sign the voluntary form, they can get a court order, and the judge will likely order a DNA test to prove paternity.
