DNA Test - Newburgh, Indiana

Newburgh IN DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Newburgh, Indiana 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:

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

Newburgh, IN - DNA Testing

Why Establish Paternity in Newburgh, IN?

Under Indiana paternity law, a man is only presumed to be a child's legal father if he was married to the child's mother at the time of birth or if the child is born no later than 300 days after his marriage has ended. In cases where two Newburgh parents have never been married and have a child, both will need to properly establish paternity for the father to gain legal rights over his child.

Beyond providing a father with his legal rights and responsibilities, establishing paternity provides a Newburgh child with expanded access to social security benefits, inheritance rights, and health insurance coverage. The Warrick County Child Support Division also requires the legal establishment of paternity if either parent wishes to request monthly child support payments from the noncustodial parent.

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Newburgh, IN

Recent Newburgh parents can establish paternity either voluntarily or involuntarily. If both parents are confident in the paternity of their child or have used DNA testing to confirm the biological father, they can voluntarily establish paternity by signing a Paternity Affidavit form. This form can be completed at the hospital within 72 hours of birth or at a later date through a Warrick County Health Department location to establish paternity.

If a Newburgh parent denies the given paternity of a child and refuses to establish paternity, the parent seeking the establishment must instead file a petition to establish paternity with Warrick County Family Court. This process will include the use of court-ordered DNA testing to identify the child's biological father. If the father has been identified, paternity will then be established.

Paternity Programs in Newburgh, IN

The state of Indiana operates a Putative Father Registry program for Newburgh and surrounding state residents who believe they have fathered a child. While this is not a method of establishing paternity, registering with the Putative Father Registry could protect a man's parental rights in the event of adoption. Under state law, before an adoption can be processed, the adopting party must notify any man listed as a potential father on the registry. If notice is received, the father may be able to establish paternity using DNA testing and potentially gain custodial rights.
