DNA Test - Murrysville, Pennsylvania

Murrysville PA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Murrysville, 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:

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

Establishing Paternity in Murrysville, PA

For an unmarried Murrysville father to gain legal rights and responsibilities over his newborn child, he and the child's mother must establish paternity. Being that both parents are unmarried, the state of Pennsylvania cannot automatically declare the man as the child's legal father. Instead, an Acknowledgment of Paternity form will be used to legally provide the man with his paternal rights.

This voluntary form can first be completed at the hospital or birthing facility where the child is delivered. Bear in mind, if there is any doubt in a child's paternity, it's advised that neither parent moves forward with the paternity establishment process. Rather, the mother and presumed father should seek DNA paternity testing to accurately determine paternity.

Assistance Determining and Establishing Paternity in Murrysville, PA

When a mother requires child support services, she will first need to establish legal paternity, as the state must have a record of the child's legal father. However, in many cases, a Murrysville mother may have no relationship with the child's father or be unaware of his location, making the paternity establishment process quite difficult. Fortunately, Westmoreland County offers absent parent location services to help overcome this hurdle.

Using the PACSES program, the local system cross-checks numerous databases, including the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Social Security Administration, to attempt to locate the presumed father. If successfully located, a mother can then file a paternity petition through Westmoreland Family Court to request DNA testing and paternity establishment services.

Experts in Murrysville, PA Say…

After establishing paternity, a Murrysville mother may need to request child support services. During the child support application process, both parents' current income will be considered when calculating a monthly support amount. According to Murrysville Family Law Attorney Margaret Trema, for instances where the child's father is with a new spouse, the income of both the father and new spouse may also be considered.

Following the outcome of Pennsylvania child support case J.P.D v. W.E.D., in which a father's new spouse had an income of over $1 million a year, the courts can now consider the new spouse's income when developing a fair support amount for the seeking mother.
