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:

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 Mercerville, NJ

Experts Say...

Moskowitz Law Group, L.L.C., serving Mercer County, explains the use of DNA testing for establishing paternity through the court system. "At the hearing, the man is given a chance to accept the paternity test request. The paternity test is a simple DNA test in which medical professionals wipe the inside of the cheek. Since this type of test is recognized to be 99% accurate in New Jersey, a judge will most likely rule that a man who tests positive is the father."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mercerville, NJ

In Mercerville, NJ, establishing paternity is how a biological father also becomes the legal father of a child. This process can be done voluntarily by signing a Certificate of Parentage form, as long as both parents agree that the man is the child's biological father. The form may be signed at the hospital when the child is born, or later, through the registrar's office. If a man is unsure whether or not he's the child's father, he should not sign the voluntary form and should prove paternity through DNA testing.

Once paternity is established, the father will obtain parental rights, including having his name added to the birth certificate. The child benefits from having a legal father and will obtain medical and financial benefits, inheritance, veteran's, and social security benefits. The child will also receive access to medical histories from both sides of the family.
