DNA Test - Navarre, Florida

Navarre FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Navarre, Florida 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 Navarre DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

DNA & Paternity Testing in Navarre FL

Why It's Important to Establish Paternity in Navarre, FL

No steps are required to establish paternity in the state of Florida when a married Navarre couple has a child. Local law presumes the husband is the biological father and automatically grants him parental rights over the child. Since this assumption only applies to married couples, only a mother will possess legal parental rights over the child of an unmarried couple until paternity is legally established.

Establishing paternity in the state of Florida creates a legal bond between father and child, allowing his details to be placed on the child's birth certificate. Legal paternity also supports the wellbeing of the child, as benefits including health insurance and social security can be provided from either or both parents. For the request of child support services, paternity must be legally established to initiate the application process.

How to Establish Paternity in Navarre, FL

There are two methods for Navarre parents who need to establish legal paternity in the state of Florida. The simplest method is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. This form should only be completed by parents who agree upon the child's correct paternity or those who have sought DNA testing to accurately determine the child's father. This form is available at the hospital where the child was born or through a Santa Rosa County Vital Statistics Office.

For a parent who is encountering roadblocks with the other parent when attempting to establish paternity, the second method is through court order. Filing a paternity petition through Santa Rosa County Family Court allows the legal system to demand DNA paternity testing from the opposite parent to identify the child's father. If testing accurately determines his identity, then both paternity and any further child support obligations can be established.

Paternity Programs in Navarre, FL

The state of Florida operates the Putative Father Registry Program through the Florida Department of Health to help preserve the rights of potential fathers. Under this program, a Navarre man who believes he has possibly fathered a child can register with the program and become informed of any legal actions involving the child. This can include an adoption hearing or notice to revoke the mother's parental rights.

While the registry does not establish paternity for the individual, the presumed father can take action to claim paternity and custodial rights in the event he is informed of legal movements involving the child. This action will typically include DNA testing and court hearings to accurately determine if he is a fit custodial option for the child.
