DNA Test - Mays Landing, New Jersey

Mays Landing NJ DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Mays Landing, New Jersey 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:

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.

DNA Testing in Mays Landing, NJ

Experts Say...

Atlantic County paternity lawyers, Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, explain why establishing paternity early on is important. Once paternity is established, the father has parental rights as well as obligations to provide child support. He may even have obligations to the child if he's considered to be the psychological father, not necessarily the biological father, of the child. "Despite the lack of a genetic link," they explain, "if a man supported a child and held that child out as his own, he can have an obligation to support that child even if it is determined later that he is not the biological father. Therefore, it is very important to establish paternity early on in a child's life, in order to avoid the potential pitfalls one might face if presumed to be a biological parent.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mays Landing, NJ

In Mays Landing, NJ, two unmarried parents have the option to establish paternity by submitting a Certificate of Parentage. Signing this document will allow the father to have his name on the birth certificate.

If there is any doubt about who the father is, either parent can request DNA testing to determine paternity.

Either parent may submit an allegation of paternity for the state to establish paternity. The process will begin within 90 days of the allegation. If there is more than one alleged father, DNA testing will be used to exclude alleged fathers if the DNA test shows less than a 95 percent probability that they are the father of the child. A man can also be excluded if the court decides he is not the father.
