DNA Test - Mountain View, California

Mountain View CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Mountain View, 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Mountain View DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Mountain View, California - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Mountain View family attorneys at the Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., explain why it's important to establish paternity. "While children born in a marriage are presumed to be the biological children of the marriage, unmarried fathers are not assumed to be the fathers of their children even if they are on the birth certificate," explains the law firm. "Therefore, unmarried fathers or mothers need to establish parentage or paternity of their children." The law firm explains that parents can establish paternity voluntarily or by going to court. "The court must make a parentage finding to order and enforce child support payments. A court order permits an unmarried father to pursue the legal right to custody and visitation."

Reasons to Establish Paternity in Mountain View, CA

Unmarried parents in Mountain View need to establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. Establishing paternity allows the child to develop relationships with both parents and provides the same benefits as children born to married parents. These benefits include financial support from the mother and the father, having both parents' names on the birth certificate, access to medical records from both parents' families, inheritance, medical and life insurance from both parents, and other benefits, such as social security and veterans' benefits.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mountain View, CA

Paternity must be established for the judge to issue child support, visitation, and custody orders to unmarried parents. In Mountain View, CA, paternity can be established voluntarily if both parents agree to sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form or by going to court. If the father denies paternity, the judge will order DNA testing to prove whether he's the child's father. A man can also request DNA testing if he's unsure if he's the father. DNA test samples are taken from the mother, the alleged father, and the child.
