DNA Test - Paramount, California

Paramount CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Paramount, California clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 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 Paramount DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Paramount, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Paramount, CA

In Paramount, California, establishing paternity is important for unwed parents. This process ensures that both parents gain legal recognition by either signing a Declaration of Parentage or obtaining a court order. If either parent wants to pursue custody or visitation rights, they must first be established as a legal parent of the child.

For those choosing to voluntarily establish paternity via the Declaration of Parentage, it's important to be certain about the biological father's identity. This declaration can normally be signed at the hospital after the baby's birth. In cases of uncertainty, individuals may involve the court. From there, the judge often orders a DNA test to confirm paternity. DNA tests, conducted through a simple cheek swab, are efficient, non-invasive, and highly accurate. After the judge has made a decision about legal paternity, other matters can also be decided, such as child support, custody, or visitation hours.

Health Street provides dependable DNA testing services in Paramount, California, whether you need to meet legal requirements or just want peace of mind. With easy online registration and convenient appointment scheduling, our DNA tests are a hassle-free experience.
