North Miami FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our North Miami, Florida 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.

Establishing paternity in North Miami

Parents in North Miami, Florida who have a child outside of marriage need to officially determine who the father is. This is called establishing paternity. Here's why and how to do it:

Ways to Establish Paternity in North Miami:

  1. Sign a form at the hospital: Right after a baby is born, both parents can sign a form called the Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). Only sign if you're 100% sure because establishing paternity is a legal commitment.
  2. Go to court: If there's a question about who the father is, a judge can decide. The judge might ask for a DNA test, and can also decide on visitation, custody, and child support.

North Miami, Florida: Benefits of establishing paternity

Know Both Parents: It's a chance to bond with both mom and dad.
Medical Info: Get health details from both sides of the family.

Financial Help: The child might get support from both parents and even benefits like insurance or veteran's perks.

For the Parents:

Shared Rights: Both mom and dad get to be part of the child's life.
Legal Steps: Dads can ask the court for visitation or custody.
Financial Duties: Dads might have to help support the child.
Team Decisions: Parents can decide together on big things like school or health care.
Adoption: If the mom thinks about adoption, she has to talk to the dad first.
