DNA Test - Palmdale, California

Palmdale CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Palmdale, California 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

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

Palmdale, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Palmdale, California

Unwed parents in California have various options to establish paternity. Quickest would be to sign a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage right after the baby is born in the hospital. Sometimes it is impossible to do it this way because, for example, the father is not present or they are not sure who the biological father is.

In that case, parents can contact a local child support agency, every county has one, and their main focus is helping parents provide support and health insurance for their kids. You will have to ask them to open a case for parentage and support, and after that, they will likely order a genetic test to prove who the biological father is.

You can also file a case to the court so the judge can establish paternity. Parentage cases can also allow parents to decide visitation, custody, and child support. The judge will probably also order a DNA test to determine the birth father and, after the results come back, decide about paternity.

DNA tests reunite Californian sisters after decades

Elia Pena admitted her mother left her and her siblings behind and moved from Valley to California when she was only one year old. Elia had been searching for her for years, and then she finally took a DNA test but never expected what she could find. Elia discovered two half-sisters.

After twenty years of searching, a DNA test made it possible for them to find each other, cry, laugh together, and reunite. Two Californian sisters flew to the Valley to meet Elia. They were jumping with joy and could not describe how happy they were to learn about another sibling. They shared some quality time and are working on getting to know each other better and making up for the lost years.
