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

Newport Beach CA DNA Testing

Reasons to Establish Paternity

There are many important reasons to establish legal paternity. According to the Newport Beach-based law firm Johnson Attorneys Group, doing so allows the courts to make important decisions regarding a child’s financial support, visitation, and physical and legal custody. It also allows for both parents’ names to be listed on the birth certificate and for the child to access his or her father’s medical history when needed.

In addition, when a child’s father is legally named, the child can receive an inheritance from both parents and can access both parents’ health and life insurance coverage and government benefits including veterans benefits and Social Security.

How to Establish Parentage in California

When a child is born to married parents, parentage is automatically assumed and no further action is required. However, if an unmarried couple has a child, they must take steps to establish legal parentage. According to the experts at Orange County Family Law Associates, there are three primary methods of doing this. First, if both parents are confident about the identity of the child’s biological father, they can sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity (VAP) form.

Either parent can also file a paternity lawsuit in family court. In some cases, this is uncontested. However, if there’s a question about the child’s paternity, then this will require a DNA test. Paternity can also be established by an administrative agency if a mother applies for government benefits and the child does not have a legal father.

A Father’s Guide to Establishing Paternity

If a man believes he is a child’s father but the mother will not acknowledge him, he can file a Petition to Establish a Parental Relationship. The Orange County Superior Court‘s website states that the child must currently live in or recently been removed from Orange County to file this form in Orange County. Once the form is filed, the father will need to submit additional evidence, which a judge will weigh before making a ruling.
