Workforce Screening, Digitally Delivered

Fast, Professional DNA Service
Got in fast. DNA was done quickly, even with a squirmy baby. My results did get lost in the mail because of the holidays. Luis helped me right away, order new ones. He didn't question me, he understood and empathized with my concerns, and got another packet out in the mail for me right away. I loved how they turned something that could have went very badly, into a great experience. Very professional. You can't go wrong. We did a DNA with a male child and paternal grandfather!

DNA Test - Orange City, Florida

Orange City FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Orange City, 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.

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.

Our Orange City DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Importance of Establishing Paternity In Orange City, FL

In the state of Florida, establishing paternity is an extremely important process for Orange City parents who are not married at the time of their child's birth. This legal process is used to declare the biological father of an Orange City child to grant him paternal rights as well as have his name placed on the child's birth certificate.

In regards to the well-being of the child, establishing paternity will also be required if either parent wishes to request monthly child support payments from the non-custodial parent. Likewise, with two legal guardians, a child can collect benefits such as health insurance and social security from either parent. Bear in mind that due to the legally binding nature of paternity establishments, it's critical that parents first use DNA testing when in doubt to help identify the biological parent.

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Orange City, FL

Orange City parents can use one of two methods to establish paternity in the state of Florida. At the hospital or birthing facility where the child is delivered, staff will provide an Acknowledgment of Paternity for both parents to simply complete and sign to establish paternity. Be aware it's advised to complete DNA testing before moving forward with this method if there is any uncertainty in the child's paternity.

Alternatively, a parent may deny a paternity claim and refuse to sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity altogether. When faced with this predicament, the Orange City parent seeking the establishment will instead need to file a petition in Volusia County Family Court to initiate the process. During court-ordered establishments, a judge will likely request the assumed father of a child undergo DNA testing. If he is verified to be the father, paternity can be established.

Paternity Laws and Regulations in Orange City, FL

When Orange City parents skip the use of DNA paternity testing when establishing paternity, they may learn at a later date that the presumed father is actually not the biological father. Regardless of this new discovery, the man can still be held responsible for monthly child support obligations if an agreement has already been made.

According to Florida Statute 742.18, to disestablish paternity and terminate a child support obligation, a petition must be filed in Volusia County Court. During a hearing to disestablish paternity, the previously presumed father must present newly discovered evidence such as DNA testing results to prove his claim. Testing must be administered within 90 days of the petition's filings to be used in court.
