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.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Murrieta

California parents who are in a legal marriage or domestic partnership are always legally assumed to be a child’s parents. Parents should know that genetic (DNA) information doesn’t always direct all child custody matters in California courts. The Golden State recognizes parentage (non-gender based) as well as paternity (fatherhood) in the family court system.

The Riverside County Family Court and the county’s Department of Children & Social Services accept certified paternity tests using DNA evidence. Murrietta’s closest Riverside County DCSS office is the Riverside office, located on Iowa Ave. in Riverside. The Riverside Family Law Courthouse is located on Main Street in downtown Riverside.

Local DNA Stories

The biological parents of 16-year-old “Princess Diane” Ramirez, who lost her life while in a Murrieta foster home in 2018, sued Riverside County for $10 million in 2019 as a result of their daughter’s death. When Diane’s parents separated in 2018, her lifelong home was disrupted and Riverside County placed her in the Michelle Morris Foster Home for disabled children in Murrieta.

Only a month before she died, “Princess Diane” made local headlines when she attended Murrieta Mesa High’s prom with the school’s star quarterback. Despite social workers requesting a new placement, Diane remained in the Morris foster home isolated from her biological parents. By April 2018, Diane’s parents allege, she died as a result of an intestinal obstruction, a condition that could have been treated successfully if the foster home operators had taken her for immediate medical care. The owners of the Morris foster home surrendered their license in May 2019 as investigations continued.

Experts Say…

According to Murrieta family lawyer Kim Roberts, “When a child is born in California to an unmarried couple, establishing paternity requires more than simply naming a father on the birth certificate.” Roberts explains that paternity can be established when the baby’s father voluntarily signs the declaration of paternity form. Signing the form voluntarily will waive the father’s right to demand a DNA paternity test.
