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.

DNA Testing in Mableton, GA
The Law Office of Daryl L. Kidd serves Mableton, GA and Cobb County, and explains the importance of establishing paternity. “Parental duties and rights can’t be enforced until there’s a determination of paternity. Doubts about paternity create problems for all involved.” The law firm explained that putative fathers need to establish paternity to establish a relationship with the child and be granted parenting time. A child benefits from paternity establishment by gaining a relationship with the father as well as child support payments. Single mothers also benefit by receiving financial support and child support payments.
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mableton, GA
Married parents that have a child do not need to establish paternity and the husband is assumed to be the father. Unmarried parents need to establish paternity for the child to have a legal father and legitimation for the father to have parenting rights.
In Mableton, GA, there is a difference between paternity and legitimation, and paternity alone does not give a father parental rights. Paternity is identifying a child’s biological father, and legitimation is what gives the child a legal father. Legitimation allows the father to seek custody and visitation rights.
Unmarried parents can establish paternity voluntarily by signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity if they both agree on who the father is. If there is any doubt about who the father is, DNA testing can be used to prove paternity. Once paternity is established, the father can have his name added to the birth certificate and he will also gain financial responsibilities for the child.
A legitimation action must be filed for the father to request custody or visitation orders or parenting time. A mother may challenge legitimation if she thinks the man is not the child’s father. However, if the court decides the alleged father is the biological father, it will declare the father-child relationship legitimate.
