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.

Milpitas, CA - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

"If you know who your child's father is, but you have not put it in writing and obtained an official judgment of paternity, the child will not be entitled to the father's Social Security benefits and will not have inheritance rights in the father's estate," said Sandra J. McManus, paternity attorney serving Milpitas. "Even if the father's name is on the child's birth certificate, it is very important to get an official judgment of paternity so that the child can get the necessary benefits if something happens to his or her father." McManus also said parents cannot receive child support, visitation, and custody orders from the court without legally establishing paternity.

Establishing Paternity in Milpitas, CA

Establishing paternity means determining the child's legal father. In Milpitas, unmarried parents that have a child must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. Once paternity is established, the father has parental responsibilities, like financial obligations, and also obtains rights to visitation and custody. If both parents agree on the child's biological father, they can establish paternity by signing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage form. The form can be signed at the hospital when the baby is born or at a later time. After signing the form, the father's name can be added to the birth certificate. If the mother and alleged father cannot agree on paternity, they can go to court.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Milpitas, CA

If signing a voluntary paternity form, parents wave their rights to DNA testing. The form should not be signed unless both parents are certain the man is the child's father. DNA testing can be used to determine paternity before signing the form. If establishing paternity in court, the judge will order DNA testing to prove paternity if the alleged father denies that he's the biological father.
