DNA Test – Miami, Florida

Miami FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Miami, Florida 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:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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 Miami DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Miami, Florida – DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Miami, FL

In the state of Florida, when two married parents have a child, no additional steps must be taken after the child’s birth to legally declare the biological father. However, in the event that two parents are not married and wish to establish paternity, the state requires a legal filing to declare the child’s biological father.

At the time of birth, two unmarried Miami parents may establish paternity by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. This form is typically provided by hospital staff but may also be accessed at a later date through a local Florida Department of Health, Florida Bureau of Vital Statistics, or Florida Department of Children and Families office. Properly filing this form with the state of Florida declares a child’s legal father and will be necessary for child support agreements.

Navigating Troublesome Paternity Situations in Miami, FL

Not always will establishing paternity be as simple as completing a form and filing with the state of Florida. In certain instances, either mother or father will refuse to complete an Acknowledgment of Paternity, which prevents a parent from legally declaring the child’s father and creates roadblocks in the effort to seek child support services.

If this is the case, a parent will need to file a paternity petition with a Florida court and request that paternity is legally established. This process will typically include a summons for the opposing parent to participate in the establishment process, which can include DNA paternity testing. If DNA testing accurately determines the identity of the father, a Miami judge can then legally establish paternity as well as help establish custody and child support agreements for the two parents.

Experts in Miami, FL Say…

It’s important to note that using DNA paternity testing to help establish paternity in Miami not only benefits the parents but more importantly the child as well. According to Miami family law lawyer Sandy Fox, establishing paternity provides various efforts to help preserve the well-being of the child, including but not limited to health insurance benefits, social security benefits, and details of family medical history.
