DNA Test - Mansfield, Texas

Mansfield TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Mansfield, Texas 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 Mansfield DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Mansfield, TX - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Mansfield, TX

For an unmarried Mansfield father to gain legal rights over his child and have his name placed on the child's birth certificate, he and the child's mother will need to establish paternity in the state of Texas. The paternity process is used in cases of unmarried parents to legally identify the child's biological father and provide him with custodial and visitation rights.

To establish paternity in Mansfield, both parents can complete an Acknowledgment of Pater­ni­ty (AOP) at the time of a child's birth. This is a completely voluntary method of establishing paternity and should only be taken if there is complete certainty in a child's paternity. If the parents cannot complete this form at the hospital, it can be completed at a later date through a Tarrant County AOP-certified entity.

Assistance Establishing Paternity in Mansfield, TX

Failing to properly establish paternity will prevent either parent from seeking monthly child support services as well as halt custodial rights for the biological father. In paternity cases in which a parent denies a given paternity claim and refuses to establish paternity, the parent seeking this establishment will need to seek assistance through Tarrant County family court.

By filing a petition to establish paternity through Tarrant County Family Court, a judge will have the power to issue a court-ordered paternity test for the presumed father. If the biological father is identified, the courts can proceed with the paternity establishment process as well as any accompanying needs, such as child support and parenting plan agreements.

Paternity Programs in Mansfield, TX

The Texas Parenting and Paternity Awareness (p.a.p.a.) program is an educational curriculum used to meet high-school health awareness requirements and educate young adults on various aspects of paternity. Highlighting the importance of waiting to become a parent after completing an education and starting a career, the program also trains students on the value of paternity establishments and the legal realities of child support in the event that they do become a parent.
