DNA Test - Monroeville, Pennsylvania

Monroeville PA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Monroeville, Pennsylvania clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. 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 Monroeville DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Paternity Testing in Monroeville, PA

Establishing Paternity in Monroeville, PA

For unmarried Monroeville parents who recently had a child, establishing paternity is a crucial component of the child's future wellbeing. Legal paternity provides a biological father with legal rights and responsibilities over the child. Plus, it allows either parent to seek monthly child support services, including healthcare and financial assistance.

In the state of Pennsylvania, legal paternity can be established simply by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. This form will first be presented to both parents for voluntary completion at the hospital or birthing facility where the child is delivered. If the form can't be completed at this time, one should be completed as soon as possible through either the Department of Public Welfare or Allegheny County Family Division Court.

Determining Paternity for Child Support Concerns in Monroeville, PA

Without the establishment of paternity, a child does not have a legally declared father. This will prevent the mother from receiving child support services. If you are a Monroeville, PA parent who is having issues establishing paternity for child support purposes, the best route to take is by filing a paternity action through Allegheny County Family Division Court.

Whether a parent refuses to sign a paternity acknowledgment or encounters uncertainty when determining the child's paternity, a judge will commonly request that the mother, child, and presumed father(s) submit to DNA testing. If results successfully identify who the child's biological father is, paternity can then be established through the court, allowing a parent to request child support services and custody agreements.

Experts in Monroeville, PA Say…

Issues of fraud can arise in certain paternity cases when a man has full confidence that he's a child's father, while the mother is fully aware that he most likely is not. Unfortunately, this man may be defrauded into completing a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity and hold child support obligations over a child that is not his.

According to Monroeville Paternity Attorney Lisa Vari, if evidence surfaces that the child's mother has defrauded you, it's important you stop filling the role as the father and seek legal help. With the presentation of evidence in court, such as paternity DNA test results, paternity acknowledgments and child support obligations can possibly be removed.
