Newnan GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Newnan, Georgia 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

Newnan, GA - DNA Testing

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Newnan, GA

Unless a Newnan father is married to his child's mother at the time of birth, a Paternity Acknowledgment must be completed to establish a legal relationship between the child and father. Failing to complete a Paternity Acknowledgment after childbirth will restrict the father from receiving custodial or visitation rights as well as halt any requests for monthly child support assistance.

In Newnan, the simplest way to establish paternity is by completing a Paternity Acknowledgment at the hospital or through a state Office of Vital Records location. If either parent denies a Newnan child's paternity and refuses to sign, then the parent seeking the establishment will need to file a paternity petition with the Coweta County Court to request court assistance.

Highlighting the Importance of DNA Testing in Newnan, GA

When two Newnan parents quickly move to establish paternity without the use of DNA testing, there could be a chance of learning that the assumed father was not the biological one later on. Because legal paternity has been established, this could result in a man who is now knowingly not the father of a child being held legally responsible for any monthly child support obligations.

If the discovery of incorrect paternity is made more than 60 days after an establishment's filing, parents will face additional difficulties when looking to disestablish paternity in court. Highlighting the importance of DNA testing, Georgia Code § 19-7-46.1(c) only allows a paternity acknowledgment to be challenged in court on the basis of material mistake, fraud, or duress following this 60-day mark.

Paternity Programs in Newnan, GA

If a Newnan man believes he has fathered a child but is unable to get in contact with the child and mother, he should consider filing with the Putative Father Registry of Georgia. This program is used to protect the rights of fathers who have already established paternity or have registered to indicate that they may be a child's biological father.

With proper registration, a Newnan man will receive notice of any adoption petitions, parental rights termination proceedings, or any other legal proceedings involving him and the child. Upon notice, the Newnan father can potentially request a DNA test to further obtain custodial rights dependent on a Coweta County Court decision.
