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.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Marlton, NJ

Establishing paternity, which means providing a child with a legal father, is automatic if two parents are married. In this case, the husband is the presumed father of the child. But in Marlton, NJ, if the parents are not married when the baby is born, paternity needs to be established.

If the father agrees that he's the father, the parents may sign a Voluntary Acknowledgement form. This can be done at the hospital when the baby is born but can also be completed at the state or county's registrar's office after leaving the hospital.

If the parents do not agree about who the father is, DNA testing must be done to prove paternity. DNA testing may be ordered by the court. Either parent may also request a DNA test. The mother, alleged father, and child must all submit DNA samples. If the test result is a 95 percent or higher probability that the man is the father, he's presumed to be the child's biological father. Once paternity is established, the court may issue a child support order.

Experts Say...

New Jersey paternity lawyers Team Law explain paternity by stating, "Paternity is not always about biology. It's about your rights and obligations as a child's legal father. Some paternity cases do involve biology—perhaps you are a mother seeking to enforce the paternal obligations that apply to your child's father. In other cases, paternity is about legality." They explain that a legal father is not always the biological father. Paternity cases can often be complex. However, if the case goes to court, the judge will consider, above all, the best interests of the child. The father has a legal right to be a part of the child's life, unless there are extenuating circumstances, which the court will also take into consideration.
