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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.
Legal DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests
A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Panorama City DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Local DNA Testing for Panorama City, CA
Whitmarsh Family Law in Los Angeles County says, “Unmarried parents must establish parentage of their child legally. This provides the opportunity for both parents to establish the best life for the minor by creating a legally binding connection, which can be used in court proceedings to determine benefits for the child going forward.”
The law firm explains that disputed parentage is when a mother claims that a man is the father of a child, and he claims that he is not. They say, “Men have the right to request a genetic test, also known as a DNA test, to assert his claim of not being the father.” They also explain why it’s important to establish paternity. “When two people are not married,” they explain, “and the mother becomes pregnant, and there is no presumed parentage in effect, the child does not have a legal father until actual paternity is established.”
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Panorama City, CA
In Panorama City, an unmarried couple must establish paternity before the court can give orders for visitation, custody, child support, and child-care costs. When both parents agree about who the father is, they can voluntarily sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity form to establish paternity.
Either parent can file a paternity action to determine paternity. The court may decide to order DNA testing to prove paternity. If DNA testing is ordered by the court, the mother, alleged father, and child will all submit DNA samples.
Once paternity is established, the court can give orders for visitation, custody, and child support.
