Minden NV DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Minden, Nevada 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

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results.

Our Minden DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing Paternity in Minden, NV

When a married Minden couple has a child in the state of Nevada, the law automatically presumes the husband to be the biological father. For unmarried parents, legal paternity will need to be established in the state for the father to gain legal rights and responsibilities over the child. The easiest way to go about the paternity establishment process is by completing a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity through the hospital or birthing facility in which the mother delivers the child.

Being that the completion of this form is voluntary, both parents will need to be willing to complete the form and agree to the presumed father's paternity. If the father is not present at the time of the child's birth, but is willing to establish paternity at a later date, a declaration may also be completed through the Douglas County Office of Vital Records or through the Southern Nevada Health District.

Navigating Troublesome Paternity Issues in Minden, NV

Although a mother may have full confidence in who her child's biological father is, the presumed father may refuse to complete a Declaration of Paternity out of disbelief that he is the father. This issue will halt the mother's opportunity to seek monthly child support services, as the child has no legally recognized father.

For Minden, NV mothers who find themselves in a similar situation, the best way to go about the paternity establishment process is by filing a complaint through Douglas County Family Court. Through this process, a judge will mandate that the presumed father undergoes DNA testing to confirm the mother's paternity presumption. When results conclude that the presumption is correct, the courts will legally establish paternity to allow for child support and custody obligations pertaining to the father.

Experts in Minden, NV Say…

According to Minden Family Law Attorney Chuck Zumpft, while parents, children, and courts can terminate a parent-child relationship, only the courts have the legal power to terminate a parent's parental rights. In most cases, the reasoning for involuntary termination of parental rights will include severe abuse, abandonment, and ongoing mental illness or deficiency. If a Minden parent believes their child's mother or father should have their parental rights revoked, it's best they immediately seek legal help and file a case through Douglas County Court.
