DNA Test - Petaluma, California

Petaluma CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Petaluma, 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Petaluma DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing paternity in Petaluma, California

In Petaluma, California, parents who are not married have multiple routes for legally establishing paternity. One option is a court procedure where a judge makes the paternity determination. Another approach is signing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDP), often available at the hospital following the child's birth.

When paternity is in question, or parents are at odds, a court proceeding is typically initiated. In such cases, a judge usually orders a DNA test for the child and the alleged father. Without legal paternity, a biological father has neither legal rights nor obligations toward the child.

Health Street offers DNA testing services in Petaluma, California, that can help parents easily establish paternity. Our tests are 99.9% accurate and involve a simple cheek swab. The process is quick and non-invasive.

Petaluma, California: Benefits of establishing paternity

Making paternity official can have a lot of benefits for the child and both parents. Once it's legally established, both parents can be required to help pay for their child's needs. It can also make it easier to sort out who gets custody of the child and when each parent can visit.

The child also gains some benefits like being able to get money through Social Security or insurance, and being able to inherit things from both parents. If the child was born outside the U.S., having a U.S. citizen parent can help them become a U.S. citizen too.
