DNA Test - Mooresville, North Carolina

Mooresville NC DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Mooresville, North Carolina 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.

Why Establish Paternity in Mooresville, NC?

In cases where two Mooresville residents have a child together but are not married at the time of the child's birth, the proper steps will need to be taken to declare the legal father and grant him parental rights. This process is known as establishing paternity and will be necessary if the father wishes to have his name placed on the child's birth certificate or if either parent needs to request monthly child support payments.

Establishing paternity is also extremely beneficial for the child, as it provides them with two legal guardians and access to a multitude of benefits. These benefits can include but are not limited to health insurance coverage, inheritance benefits, social security benefits, and military benefits. Bear in mind, if there are any doubts about a child's paternity, ensure you first seek DNA paternity testing first before establishing paternity.

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Mooresville, NC

In the state of North Carolina, Mooresville parents can establish paternity through a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity or by court order. If both parents agree upon the given paternity claim, they can sign a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form at the hospital following a child's birth to quickly and easily establish paternity.

However, in cases where a parent refuses to establish paternity, the process must be completed via a court order. A parent can submit a petition to establish paternity through Iredell County Family Court. From here, a judge will issue a summons for the opposing parent to appear in court and undergo DNA testing. If DNA testing can determine the biological father, then paternity can be established along with any child support or parenting agreements.

Experts in Mooresville, NC Say

According to Mooresville Family Law lawyer Judith Daly, fathers — whether married or unmarried — have both rights and obligations in child custody matters. However, if a Mooresville father fails to properly establish paternity following his child's birth, he will hold no legal rights over the child until the proper forms are signed and submitted or a court-ordered DNA paternity test is taken. Once paternity is established, the father will be able to seek custody and visitation rights, or in some cases, monthly child support payments from the mother.
