DNA Test – Perris, California

Perris CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Perris, 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 Perris DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Perris, CA – DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Perris, CA

Under California law, married Perris couples are automatically granted paternity at the time of their child’s birth, as it is presumed that the husband is the biological father. For an unmarried father to gain legal parental rights over his newborn child, both he and the child’s mother must legally establish paternity in the state of California.

The filing of a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form will be the simplest way for both parents to legally establish paternity. The first opportunity to complete this form will be presented at the hospital following the child’s birth, but one can be completed at a later date through Riverside County Child Support Services office or Office of Vital Records. Once this form is filed properly through the state, the father’s name can then be placed on the birth certificate and he will gain legal parental rights and responsibilities over the child.

Navigating Paternity Issues in Perris, CA

Following the birth of a child, a Perris mother may have conflict with the presumed father, preventing her from properly establishing paternity or requesting child support services. If you find yourself encountering difficulties establishing paternity, it’s recommended you file a paternity petition with Riverside County Family Court. By doing so, the presumed father can be summoned by a judge to submit to DNA testing to confirm the paternity claim. If test results do conclude he is the biological father, then a judge will legally establish paternity and allow the mother to request monthly child support services from the father.

Experts in Perris, CA Say…

Outside of allowing the mother to request child support payments, legally establishing paternity provides benefits for the father as well. According to Perris Paternity Attorney Christopher Dorado, establishing legal paternity also establishes “father’s rights.” Father’s rights include requesting child support from the mother, visitational and custodial rights, challenging adoptions, and adding the child to health care plans.
