DNA Test - Medford, New York

Medford NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Medford, New York clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Medford DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

DNA Testing Sotires for Medford, NY

Local DNA Stories

In 2017, a Suffolk County woman discovered she had a brother she didn't know about, and that he lived in a neighboring county. "There's like a missing piece that's been filled," said Jennifer Milian, after discovering she has a brother. Jennifer grew up with her adoptive family but was eager to find her biological mother in Columbia. She took a DNA test, which led to the discovery of her brother, Brandon Ordonez, a 40-year-old resident of Nassau County. The two siblings are now making up for lost time, and Jennifer is now the aunt to her brother's children.

Experts Say...

Susan A. Kassel, P.C., serving Medford, NY and Suffolk County states, "One of the greatest misconceptions of child custody cases is the idea that the parent who spends more time with the child would have a greater entitlement to custody. It is important to note that stay-at-home parents have no greater rights to custody than those who work for the success of the family." She says that both parents have equal rights and the courts will decide custody arrangements based on both parents' ability to care for the child, their relationships with the child, the parent's mental and physical health, work schedules and lifestyle of the parents, health and age of the child, and the child's preference, among other factors.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Medford, NY

In Medford, NY, unmarried parents need to establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. Once paternity is established, the father will obtain legal rights and responsibilities for the child, including custody and child support orders.

Paternity can be established voluntarily if both parents agree to sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form. If there are any doubts as to who the father is, the parents should not sign the form and request DNA testing for paternity. Paternity may also be decided through the courts and DNA testing may be ordered.
