DNA Test – Manhasset, New York

Manhasset NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Manhasset, New York 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

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 Manhasset DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

DNA Paternity Testing in The City of Manhasset, NY

Experts Say…

Nassau County paternity lawyer, Jason M. Barbara and Associates, states, “A child born outside of marriage has no legal father, and the biological father will not have responsibilities unless paternity is established. In some cases, the father of the child may dispute that he is the parent, and only DNA testing ordered by the court will resolve the problem.” According to Barbara, if a mother wishes to share parental responsibilities with the father or obtain medical information, paternity must be established.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Manhasset, NY

In Manhasset, NY, paternity must be established if the parents are not married when the child is born. Teen parents and those living in the U.S. that are not citizens must also establish paternity to give the child a legal father.

Paternity can be established if both parents agree to sign a voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity form. The form is often signed at the hospital when the child is born but can also be signed at any time until the child reaches 21 years of age. The form should not be signed if the parents are not sure who the father is, the parents are married, or the mother is married to someone other than the child’s biological father.

If an Acknowledgement of Paternity form is not signed, paternity may be established through the court. If the mother and alleged father are not sure who the father is, DNA testing will be done to determine the child’s father. Once DNA testing proves paternity, paternity will still need to be established for the child to have a legal father.

Establishing paternity offers benefits for the mother, father, and child, such as:

Shared parental responsibilities
Financial security for the family
Custody and visitation for the father
The father’s name added to the birth certificate
Access to medical information from both sides
Medical and life insurance, inheritance, veteran’s and social security benefits for the child
