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.

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.

Establishing Paternity in Moon Township, PA

Legally establishing paternity in the state of Pennsylvania is a crucial step for every Moon Township child. Doing so will legally establish the child's father, as well as provide an opportunity for either parent to request child support services and custody agreements. Although state law automatically establishes paternity for married couples, as it is presumed the husband is the biological father, unmarried parents will need to take steps to legally establish paternity in the state of Pennsylvania.

Paternity can be established simply by completing an Acknowledgement of Paternity form. This form will 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 can also be completed through either the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare or Allegheny County Family Division Court.

Navigating Difficult Paternity Situations in Moon Township, PA

Following the birth of a Moon Township child, a mother may have doubts about who her child's biological father is. Furthermore, in some of these situations, a couple can be quick to act upon a presumption and establish paternity without having full confidence in who the child's father is. Doing this can make it difficult to disestablish paternity and remove child support obligations in court if it is discovered at a later date that the presumed father is not the biological father.

Instead, Moon Township couples should seek the help of DNA paternity testing to accurately determine paternity. In situations where a presumed father does not agree to take a DNA test, the mother will need to file a paternity petition with the Allegheny County Family District Court. From here, a judge can issue a summons for the presumed father and mandate that he undergoes DNA testing. If results accurately determine paternity, the paternity establishment process can be completed.

Experts in Moon Township, PA Say …

For Moon Township parents who do not remain in a relationship following their child's birth, it's best they agree on a custody agreement that provides a healthy share of time with both parents. If both parents cannot come to an agreement by themselves, one will need to be legally settled upon in court. According to Moon Township Family Law Attorney Charles Voelker, Pennsylvania courts look at numerous factors when determining the best custody agreement. These factors include the child's preferences, the parents proven ability to provide care, and criminal history.
