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.

Establishing Paternity in Massapequa Park, NY

Without the presence of a legal marriage, the state of New York cannot automatically declare a child's legal father. Therefore, New York parents who were not married at the time of their child's birth must file an Acknowledgment of Parentage to identify the child's father and establish paternity. Establishing paternity grants the father his paternal rights and places his name on the child's birth certificate.

Before completing an Acknowledgment of Parentage and submitting it to the New York Office of Vital Records, it's important for both parents to have confidence in the assumed paternity of the child. If there is any possibility that another man outside of the assumed father could be the actual biological father, it's essential that Massapequa Park parents first seek DNA paternity testing.

Assistance Establishing Paternity in Massapequa Park, NY

While using an Acknowledgment of Parentage to establish paternity is a pretty straightforward process, there are still instances when a parent may refuse to sign the form, halting the establishment process. Without the legal establishment of paternity, a parent will not be able to seek monthly child support, nor will the father be able to gain parental rights over his child.

However, a Massapequa Park parent who wishes to establish paternity can open a paternity case in the state of New York to initiate this process. When a petition to establish paternity is submitted to a New York Family Court, the opposing parent will be served a summons to appear in court and likely undergo DNA paternity testing. Once the true father is identified through DNA paternity, paternity can then be established in addition to parenting agreements and child support orders.

Experts in Massapequa Park, NY Say…

Following a paternity case, many Massapequa Park parents will oftentimes require the assistance of the New York Family Court to establish a custody agreement. According to Massapequa Park Family Law Attorney Michelle DiPaolo, a judge will consider many factors when deciding a custody agreement that works in the best interests of a child. Those factors include a parent's history of substance abuse and criminal activity, a parent's work schedule, and the child's relationship with each parent.
