DNA Test - Morristown, Tennessee

Morristown TN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Morristown, Tennessee 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 Morristown DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Morristown, TN - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Morristown, TN

If Morristown parents are married when they have a child, the law presumes the husband to be the child's legal father. However, unmarried parents must establish paternity. The easiest way to establish paternity in Morristown is to sign a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment at the hospital when the child is born. Both parents must agree to sign the form and should not sign if either one doubts paternity. Parents can sign the form later with the Hamblen County Department of Child Services, located at 1077 East Morris Blvd. in Morristown. Parents who cannot agree to sign the voluntary form can establish paternity in court. Either parent has 60 days after filing the form to rescind the acknowledgment form in writing.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Morristown, TN

If either parent questions the child's biological father, they should not sign a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement until taking a DNA test to prove paternity. A DNA test may also be ordered by a judge if the parents establish paternity in court. DNA test samples are taken by swabbing the inside of the father's and child's cheek and sent to a certified lab for analysis. DNA test results can exclude a man as the child's biological father or determine paternity with more than 99% probability. DNA testing may also be ordered by a judge if the parents establish paternity in court.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity in Morristown, TN

Establishing paternity gives a child a legal father, which benefits the child, the mother, and the father. With two legal parents, they can share financial and emotional parental responsibilities, and the child gains a sense of identity and well-being. Paternity also grants the child access to benefits, like life insurance, medical benefits, social security, veteran's benefits, and child support. The child can also obtain medical records from both families to see if any medical disorders run in the family.
