DNA Test - Nanuet, New York

Nanuet NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Nanuet, New York 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

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 Nanuet DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Paternity Testing in Nanuet, NY

Assistance Establishing Paternity in Nanuet, NY

For unmarried Nanuet parents, establishing legal paternity is a crucial aspect of a child's wellbeing. By legally establishing paternity, a child's legal father is granted rights and responsibilities, and a child's mother may seek child support services. Although the paternity establishment process is fairly simple and requires both parents to file an Acknowledgement of Parentage form, this process is completely voluntary and both parents will have to be willing to accept it.

If you are encountering issues establishing paternity due to the other parent refusing to sign the form or disagreeing with the paternity claim, it's best you seek the assistance of the New York Paternity Petition Program. Through this program, either father or mother can file a paternity petition to have legal paternity established in the state of New York. The process typically requires DNA testing to validate the paternity claim and if proved correct, paternity will be established, allowing a parent to seek child support and custodial rights.

Paternity Programs in Nanuet, NY

For unmarried Nanuet men who recently fathered a child, the state of New York offers the Putative Father Registry to help protect their rights. The registry can be used by men who have either filed a notice to claim paternity, acknowledged paternity, or have been determined in court to be the father of a child.

For fathers who may not play a significant role in the child's life, the Putative Father Registry establishes the right to receive notice of any legal proceedings involving the child, including foster care, guardianship, custody, or adoption. This helps protect the father's rights to take legal custody in the event that the child requires a guardian. If this occurs, the father will need to prove that he can provide satisfactory care for the child in court.

Experts in Nanuet, NY Say…

In cases where two parents cannot agree on shared custody, a custody agreement may need to be brought to court. A joint custody agreement will usually entail constructing a parenting agreement which establishes the child's living situation and time with each parent. According to Nanuet Family Law Attorney Ellen Holtzman, all custody agreements are individualized to the facts of the case, and the best interest of the child.

The courts will take numerous factors into consideration when establishing custody agreements, including criminal history and current living situations, to establish a co-parenting schedule that works in the best interest of the child. Furthermore, New York courts will also acknowledge the child's preferences when resolving the issue.
