DNA Test - Overland Park, Kansas

Overland Park KS DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Overland Park, 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.

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

Overland Park, Kansas - DNA Testing

Former MLB Player Reunites with 7 Siblings After DNA Test

Former Major League Baseball player Mike Henneman was adopted as a baby, growing up with his sister, Janet, who was also adopted. As an adult, he took a DNA test after his wife encouraged him to learn more about his past. When the results came back, he was shocked to learn that he had five brothers and two sisters that he never knew about.

About five weeks after their initial contact, Mike and his wife Meredith left their Overland Park home and flew to Cincinnati, where he met up with the family he didn't know existed for the first five decades of his life. When asked about the reunion, Mike's brother John Hart said, "I would say it's one of the greatest things to happen in my life."

Establishing Paternity in Overland Park

When a child is born to a married couple in the state of Kansas, the mother's husband is presumed to be the child's biological father. However, when the child's parents are unmarried, things get a bit more complicated. According to attorneys at the Overland Park-based Strange Law Firm, unmarried parents can establish paternity by completing an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity form when the child is born.

If there is a dispute over the identity of the child's biological father, paternity is established using a court order. In most cases, the courts will require a DNA test from an accredited laboratory before making a final ruling.

Disputing Paternity in Overland Park

Being incorrectly named as a child's biological father can have lifelong consequences. According to attorneys at Rundberg Law LLC, an Overland Park law firm specializing in paternity issues, it's critical not to ignore paternity paperwork or sign an acknowledgment of paternity form if you believe you are not the child's father. Instead, you can file an answer and request a DNA test to confirm that you are not the child's father. It's essential that you complete this test with a lab that is approved by the courts—otherwise, it will not be admissible.
