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

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.

Local DNA Testing Information
Local DNA Stories in Mountain View, CA
Two sisters were able to meet each other for the first time after finding each other with DNA testing.
Kathleen Robinson, of Santa Clara County, was nine years old when she found out that she was adopted, and she took it pretty hard. She was always curious about her birth parents. “I refused to celebrate my birthday when I found out I was adopted,” she said. “It was a hard thing for me because I thought, ‘Do my biological parents think of me?’ It was a really depressing day for me, so I didn’t want it to ever be celebrated.”
She spent years searching for her biological parents and any possible siblings. At age 53, she used DNA testing and was able to meet her sister for the first time. Robinson’s sister, Deana Harn, lives only 15 minutes away in Milpitas. She now has a sister who’s also a best friend.
Schoenberg Family Law Group, P.C., serving Mountain View, CA, explains why parents need to establish paternity. “Paternity can provide a number of benefits not only to the child but to the parents as well. Most importantly, it offers a chance for both father and child to establish a relationship as biological family members and develop a true family in the years to come. Additionally, establishing paternity also offers financial benefits. The child will be entitled to health insurance under his or her father, along with any necessary child support. The child will also have a right to inherit his or her father’s estate.”
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Mountain View, CA
If a child is born to parents that are married, the husband becomes the child’s legal father and paternity will not need to be established.
In Mountain View, CA, two parents have the option to establish paternity voluntarily, which will avoid the need to go to court. If there is a disagreement about who the father is, the court will likely order DNA testing for paternity.
