DNA Test - New City, New York

New City NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our New City, New York 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 New City DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Paternity Programs in New City, NY

The New York Putative Father Registry has been established to protect the rights of unmarried New City men who recently fathered a child. Under this program, a man who has either acknowledged paternity or been determined in court as the father of a child can sign up for the registry.

This program is especially important for men who do not play a role in their child's life, as it provides notice of any legal action taken upon the child. This includes foster care placement, custody hearings, and motions for adoption. In the case of one of these events, the father has the opportunity to request guardianship so long as he can prove he is a suitable adult.

Paternity Establishment Assistance in New City, NY

As long as both parents agree upon the paternity presumption, paternity can be legally established voluntarily through an Acknowledgment of Paternity form. For New City parents struggling to establish paternity due to disagreements amongst parents, the New York Paternity Petition Program can help.

Through this program, either mother or father can file a petition to establish legal paternity in the state of New York. First, the court will request DNA testing to confirm the individual's paternity claim. Once results identify who the child's biological father is, the courts can then proceed to file legal paternity. When the paternity establishment process is complete, the parents can then proceed with child support services applications and co-parenting agreements.

Experts in New City, NY Say …

Years after the establishment of paternity and a co-parenting agreement, circumstances may change and require updates. According to New City Family Law Lawyer Stacy Sabatini, the courts seek to prevent emotionally driven disputes and will only agree to modify a custody agreement on a set number of circumstances. These circumstances include relationships between child and parent, change in finances, change in health, remarriage, and abuse/neglect. Once these factors are taken into consideration, a New City judge will approve an agreement that works for the wellbeing of the child.
