DNA Test - Montebello, California

Montebello CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Montebello, California 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

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

Montebello, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Montebello, CA

Establishing paternity for unwed parents in Montebello, California can be easy. If parents have no reason to doubt who the birth father is, they usually choose to establish paternity voluntarily. This can be done by signing the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDP) at the hospital after the child is born. In California, hospital staff is trained and educated on how to proceed and should be able to help with the process.

However, a VDP should not be signed if there are any reason to doubt the paternity. In cases where parents disagree or are unsure about paternity, they often choose to establish paternity via court instead. The judge often asks the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test. If paternity is established, the judge may also make decisions regarding custody, child support, and visitation if necessary.

Health Street's DNA testing services can help parents establish paternity. Our tests are 99.9% accurate and involve a simple cheek swab, making the process quick and painless. With Health Street, you can effortlessly establish paternity, providing you with peace of mind and clarity. Contact us today to benefit from our trusted DNA testing services.

Montebello, California: Disputing paternity

In some instances, disputing paternity simply requires taking a DNA test. If the test confirms that you are not the biological father, the judge may rule in your favor during a paternity dispute hearing. If you have already signed a VDP, however, you have a 60-day window to dispute it. Beyond this timeframe, canceling the declaration requires initiating legal proceedings through the court.

If you wish to dispute the summons from a local child support agency, you have thirty days to take the DNA test. Ensure you do not miss the deadline; otherwise, the court can establish you as a legal parent even if you are not the birth father.
