DNA Test - Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha NE DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Omaha, Nebraska 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Omaha DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Omaha, Nebraska - DNA Testing

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Omaha, NE

For unmarried Omaha parents who recently welcomed a child, establishing paternity is important to the well-being of both the parents and the child. In the state of Nebraska, parents have four years after the birth of a child to establish paternity. However, they may require legal assistance or DNA testing to help complete the process, so it's important to remain mindful of establishment benefits.

Establishing legal paternity in Omaha allows the biological father of the child to be legally declared, further establishing his paternal rights to seek custody, visitation, and even child support. The same can be said for a mother, for whom the state requires paternity establishment to seek child support. A child also benefits from a paternity establishment by potentially receiving social security, health insurance, or inheritance from either parent.

Establishing Paternity in Omaha, NE

Under Nebraska law, when parents are married at the time of a child's birth, it is presumed the husband is the child's biological father and no further steps will need to be taken to establish paternity. For unmarried Omaha parents, the state of Nebraska requests that they complete an Acknowledgement of Paternity and have it properly filed with DHHS Vital Records Management.

In the event that either parent refuses to voluntarily establish paternity, a paternity petition will need to be filed with Omaha family court. This process allows a judge to issue a summons to the necessary parental party to help establish paternity through means of DNA testing. If paternity is successfully established, a parent can then request a custody/visitation agreement in addition to requesting child support services.

Experts in Omaha, NE Say…

According to Omaha family law attorney James Adams, there comes a time and place when DNA testing must be used to establish paternity in the state of Nebraska. DNA testing will not be necessary if there is no dispute as to who a child's biological father is. However, if there is any sort of doubt, it's crucial for Omaha parents to follow through with DNA paternity testing to accurately determine the child's correct paternity. If a father fails to complete DNA testing but later discovers he is not the father, he may still be required to comply with monthly child support payments.
