North Port FL DNA Testing Locations

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

North Port, Florida - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in North Port, FL

In North Port, Florida, unwed parents have options when it comes to confirming the father's identity. If both parents are certain, they can sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity form. This document becomes official with the presence of two witnesses or a notary, and it's a procedure typically finalized at the hospital immediately after a child's birth.

However, if there's doubt about the biological father, the matter can be brought to court. Here, a DNA test, typically a quick and painless cheek swab, might be requested. Once the results are in, the judge can confirm the father. But this doesn't immediately assign parental rights or obligations. It paves the way for the dad to ask for visitation or for the mom to request child support.

Health Street offers precise DNA tests with 99.9% accuracy in North Port, whether you need it for peace of mind or legal reasons.

North Port, Florida: Benefits of establishing paternity
