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

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 Middle Village DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Experts Say...

"Determining paternity is about much more than who to call 'dad,'" says Queens County paternity lawyer, Joseph H. Nivin, "Paternity is important to establish for many reasons, including holding the father accountable for his share of support and allowing him to refuse to give a child up for adoption. For the mother, it can mean vital financial support for raising the child and a requirement of shared custody or visitation." According to Nivin, the child also benefits from paternity establishment by accessing rights to inheritance, financial support until the child is an adult, and the right to sue for harm or death to the father. Another important component of establishing paternity is child support. In Middle Village, NY and Queens County, the parents are financially responsible for supporting the child until the child reaches 21 years of age. The parent who has custody of the child can get child support, based on the parents' incomes and the child's needs.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Middle Village, NY

Paternity, which means "legal fatherhood," allows a father to have rights and responsibilities to his child. In Middle Village, NY, a father is financially responsible to his child until the child is 21 years old. By establishing paternity, the father also obtains decision-making rights regarding the child and visiting time or custody. Mothers who are married when they give birth do not need to establish paternity and the husband is presumed the father. If the mother is not married, two parents may establish paternity by filing an Acknowledgement of Paternity form or by going to court. DNA testing may be ordered by the court. If the test proves paternity, an Order of Filiation will be ordered by the court. Once paternity is established, the court can give orders for custody, visitation, and child support.
