DNA Test - Murfreesboro, Tennessee

Murfreesboro TN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Murfreesboro, Tennessee 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

Local DNA Stories

Casper Collins was born in the Philippines in 1982, and never know his dad. Thirty-seven years later, he was using a DNA testing kit to try to find his father — a navy sailor stationed in the Philippines who had a fleeting relationship with his mom. He was skeptical at first, but through DNA testing results, he discovered a half-brother living in Colorado who had a startling resemblance to himself. He then received an email response saying that he hadn't located his half-brother, but rather his father, Tom Robertson. After Facebook messaging and photographs, they arranged a Thanksgiving meeting in Denver.

Experts Say...

The Cole Law Group, serving Murfreesboro, TN, explains parental rights for parents that are not married. "Tennessee is what is commonly referred to as a "Mother's state". This simply means that when children are born out of wedlock, the Father has no rights to parent the child," explains the law group, "If the parents are married, the husband is considered the father of children born during the marriage. If the parents are not married at the time of the birth, legal action of some sort must be taken to establish paternity, or the child has no legal father."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Murfreesboro, TN

Establishing paternity gives the child a legal father and allows both parents to share parental rights and responsibilities, including financial and legal responsibilities and developing emotional relationships. In Murfreesboro, parents can establish paternity through the Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity Program, which allows parents to establish paternity voluntarily and avoid going to court.

If paternity is in question before establishing paternity, either parent may request DNA testing to determine the child's biological father. Once DNA test results confirm paternity, paternity can be established through a court order.
