DNA Test - North Babylon, New York

North Babylon NY DNA Testing Locations

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

Facts about DNA Testing in North Babylon NY

The Role of DNA Technology in Establishing Paternity in North Babylon

Babylon residents who need proof of paternity for a child support or custody court case can enlist the services of a local law office that specializes in Family Law. Regarding the effectiveness and legality of DNA testing to prove paternity, nearby Deer Park attorney Beth A. Rosenthal, P.C. states,

With the incredible rise of DNA technology, potential parents are now able to quickly and reliably determine biological relationships with a simple swab of the cheek. Although such technology is now available over the counter in many areas, states like New York have emphasized that only DNA tests ordered by courts or medical professionals can be used to establish paternity for legal purposes.

Court ordered DNA tests are available at Health Street, which has a conveniently located clinic in North Babylon.

Rules for Establishing Paternity for North Babylon Residents

The New York State Unified Court System provides detailed instructions for those who need to establish paternity of a child, if the person lives in North Babylon or elsewhere in Suffolk County. A paternity case filed in Family Court may begin with an Order of Filiation. This is done if the father and mother are unmarried and haven't signed an Acknowledgement of Paternity, or if the mother was married, but that person is not the biological father. An order of filiation is only completed if there is no doubt as to the child's biological father. Otherwise, a legal paternity test is ordered by the court to show that the man is 98% likely to be the father. For paternity cases and child support matters, those living in North Babylon must present their case to the Suffolk County Family Court in Central Islip.
