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
Why Establishing Paternity in Perris, CA is Important
Under California law, the courts cannot legally declare a child’s father without the presence of a marriage or an establishment of paternity form. So, if a Perris father is not married to his child’s mother at the time of birth, he and the mother can sign a Declaration of Paternity form to establish his parental role and responsibilities.
By establishing paternity, a child may receive parental benefits from both parties, including child support, health insurance coverage, and inheritance. Keep in mind that a paternity establishment creates a legal bond, so if there is any sort of reasonable doubt in the paternity claim, Perris parents will first want to use DNA testing to identify the biological father before signing the form.
Rescinding a Paternity Establishment in Perris, CA
As previously mentioned, DNA testing is crucial in paternity cases where the identity of the biological father is not certain. If a presumed father and biological mother move forward with establishing paternity but learn later on that the legal father is not the biological father, the man on the paternity form will still be held responsible for monthly child support payments until the agreement is removed.
In the state of California, a Perris parent has up to 60 days following the filing of a Declaration of Paternity to submit a rescission form (CS 915) with the Riverside County Child Support Services. If the 60-day market has passed, the Perris parent will need to seek legal assistance and file a court action to rescind the paternity agreement.
Assistance Establishing Paternity in Perris, CA
Because the completion of a Declaration of Paternity form is completely voluntary, a parent has the right to refuse to sign this form, which can result in an inability to properly establish paternity and seek child support services.
In such cases, the other parent will instead need to file a petition to establish paternity through Riverside County Family Court. Here, a judge can mandate that the presumed father undergoes DNA testing to verify his biological connection to the child and accurately establish paternity.
