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.

Paternity Testing in Mission Hills, CA
Establishing Paternity in Mission Hills, CA
For married Mission Hills parents who recently had a child, no necessary steps will need to be taken to establish paternity as the law presumes the husband is the biological father. For unmarried Mission Hills parents who need to establish legal paternity, steps will need to be taken for the father to receive rights and responsibilities over the child.
Through the California Parentage Opportunity Program (POP), the easiest way to establish legal paternity is by completing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP). This form can be completed at the hospital or birthing facility as well a Los Angeles County Child Support Services Office of Vital Statistics office. Once this form is completed and filed properly with the state, the biological father will then possess rights and responsibilities over the child.
Determining Paternity in Mission Hills, CA
If a mother is unsure of her child’s paternity at the time of the child’s birth, she must not act on presumption and have a man who is potentially not the father complete a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity. Instead, she should file a paternity action through Los Angeles County Family Court to accurately establish paternity using DNA testing. Even if the presumed father refuses to submit to DNA testing or sign a VDOP, a paternity action will allow a judge to mandate testing. This is important in the paternity establishment process, as it provides the court with necessary proof to legally establish paternity and enforce child support obligations.
Experts in Mission Hills, CA Say…
Following the difficult paternity establishment process, a Mission Hills mother may also encounter difficulties receiving support from the child’s father. To have mandated child support payments established, you will need to apply for child support services through the state. According to Mission Hills Family Law Attorney Joel Seidel, when you submit a child support application, the Department of Child Support Services will use numerous factors to calculate a monthly amount. These factors include a child’s health care expenses and the cost of insurance, number of children involved, cost of the child’s educational needs, and the monthly income of both parents.
