Olathe KS DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Olathe, Kansas 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.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity

The Kansas Department of Children and Families states that there are many benefits to establishing a child's paternity. Doing so allows the child to have a legal record of his or her parents' identity and access to family medical records. Once legal paternity is established, the child can also receive financial support from both parents, including access to each parent's Social Security and medical benefits, military allowances, inheritances, health insurance coverage, and more. Establishing paternity also allows the courts to rule on important issues including custody, visitation, and child support.

How to Establish Paternity in Olathe

In Kansas, when a child is born to unmarried parents, steps must be taken to establish legal paternity. According to Olathe legal firm Juris Law & Mediation, it's important to understand that there is a difference between a child's legal father and biological father. Even if a man is a child's biological father, if he is not listed on the birth certificate, he has no legal rights regarding the child.

Paternity can be established by either voluntarily signing an acknowledgment of paternity or filing a paternity petition. In Johnson County, documents can be submitted to the Johnson County District Court, located at 150 W. Santa Fe St. Olathe, Kansas 66061. If both parents don't agree about the paternity of the child, the courts will order a DNA test before making a ruling.

Fighting False Accusations of Paternity

In some cases, a man may want to disprove paternity to prove that a child is not his. For example, a mother may wrongfully claim a man is a child's father in an attempt to get child support. The Kansas Parentage Act (K.S.A. § 23-2208) lists a number of factors that can cause a presumption of paternity. However, according to Olathe paternity law firm Martin & Wallentine, a skilled paternity lawyer may be able to disprove presumed paternity in court, freeing a man from financial and legal obligations for a child he did not father.
