DNA Test - Mesquite, Texas

Mesquite TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Mesquite, Texas 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:

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 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Mesquite DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Mesquite, Texas - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

The Nacol Law Firm serves Mesquite, TX, and explained the difference between a child's biological father and legal father. "A baby born to unwed parents does not have a legal father under Texas Law," the law firm says. "In order to exercise your rights as a father, including visitation and possession, a man must be a child's legal father." The firm explains that just because a man's name is on the birth certificate, it does not mean he's also the child's legal father, and he doesn't have legal rights to the child unless paternity is established. "The process to become a legal father is a simple one," the firm states. "If the biological father and the mother agree, they can both sign an 'Acknowledgement of Paternity.'"

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mesquite, TX

Unmarried parents in Mesquite, TX must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. If both parents agree that the man is the child's biological father, they can sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) form. If a mother and the alleged father disagree about who the father is or have doubts, they can use DNA testing to prove paternity before signing the voluntary form. Paternity can also be established in court, and the judge may order DNA testing. Once DNA testing determines paternity, paternity can be established.

Importance of Establishing Paternity

Establishing paternity means giving the child a legal father, which gives the father parental rights to the child. Paternity benefits both parents and the child. With a legal father, the mother and child receive financial support. The child can also receive benefits, such as social security, veteran's benefits, medical insurance, life insurance, other available benefits, and access to medical information from both parents.

To sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity form, Mesquite residents can find an AOP entity in Dallas at 400 South Zang Blvd Ste. 1100.
