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.

Experts Say...

The California Law Office of Leon F. Bennett explains the process of establishing paternity. "In California, signing a voluntary declaration of paternity is the only way that an unmarried father's name can be listed on a child's birth certificate," the law firm stated. "If both parents do sign this voluntary declaration of paternity, then parental rights are firmly established and the document is as legally binding as any court order." The Declaration of Paternity form can be signed at the hospital, or later on, at the welfare office or superior court, according to the law office. "With the signing of the declaration, each party acknowledges and freely admits to being that child's parent and thus waives certain rights such as hiring a lawyer and entering into a court trial to determine parentage after the fact," the law office said. "You also lose the ability to request genetic DNA testing to establish biological parentage."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Oak View, CA

Establishing paternity means giving the child a legal father. In Oak View, CA, if the parents are not married, paternity must be established before the parents can receive orders regarding child support, custody, or visitation. If the alleged father denies paternity, the court may order DNA testing. If this is the case, the mother, alleged father, and child must submit DNA samples for testing.

Once paternity is established, the father receives parental rights and responsibilities, and he can request visitation or custody rights. He also gains financial responsibilities including health insurance for the child and child support. Failure to financially support the child is a crime in Oak View, CA.

In addition to financial support, establishing paternity offers benefits for the whole family. The child will have access to medical records on both sides of the family, health and life insurance from both parents, inheritance, and other benefits from both parents.
