Mount Pocono PA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Mount Pocono, 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:

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 Mount Pocono DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Experts Say...

Fisher & Fisher, lawyers serving the Mount Pocono area, explained the benefits of establishing paternity. "In addition to child support, paternity establishes emotional, social, and economic ties between the father and the child," explained the lawyers. "Once paternity is legally established, the child gains certain legal rights and privileges." The law firm stated that the child could receive any benefits available, including medical and life insurance, inheritance, social security, and veteran's benefits. Establishing paternity also grants a child access to family medical records, gives the child a sense of identity, and adds a father figure to the child's life.

Establishing Paternity in Mount Pocono, PA

If two parents are married when their child is born, the husband becomes the child's legal father, and establishing paternity isn't required. However, unmarried parents must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. The easiest way to establish paternity in Mount Pocono is by signing a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity (VAP) at the hospital when the child is born. Parents who cannot agree to establish paternity voluntarily can go to family court. Mount Pocono parents can contact the Monroe County Court, located at 610 Monroe Street in Stroudsburg.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mount Pocono, PA

If either parent is unsure or denies paternity, they can use DNA testing to determine the child's biological father. The judge may also order a DNA test if the parents establish paternity in court. DNA testing is the most accurate test to determine whether a man is the child's biological father. DNA test samples are taken from a cheek swab and sent to a certified lab for analysis. DNA test results can show the likelihood that a man is the father or exclude him as the father.
