DNA Test - Pflugerville, Texas

Pflugerville TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Pflugerville, Texas 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

Establishing paternity in Pflugerville, TX

In Pflugerville, Texas, establishing paternity is important for unmarried parents, especially when it comes to child support and legal rights. There are two main ways to establish paternity:

  1. If there is no doubt about the father's identity, most people choose to sign the Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP). This can be done at the hospital after the baby is born, and should be signed before an AOP-certified entity. Signing an AOP is the quickest and easiest way to establish paternity. However, it is important to remember that this is a legally binding document and should not be signed if there are doubts.
  2. If parents disagree or have doubts about the identity of the birth father, sometimes they choose to go to court to establish paternity. This process often involves the judge ordering a DNA test for the alleged father and child. The test is usually a simple cheek swab to give the judge more information about the biological relationship.

Until paternity is established, all parties can miss out on benefits. For example, the father will have no legal rights involving the child. The mother can miss out on financial support. The stakes are also high for the child, who can miss out on benefits like health insurance, life insurance, inheritance, and more.

Health Street offers DNA testing solutions legally admissible in a court of law. Our tests are easy, painless, and offer 99.9% accuracy. Contact us today to book an appointment in Pflugerville, Texas.

Pflugerville, Texas: Denial of paternity

If an AOP has been signed, fathers have the option to submit a "Rescission of the Acknowledgment of Paternity" form as a way to withdraw their acknowledgment. This form must be filed within the first 60 days after the AOP has been filed with the Vital Statistics Unit (VSU), or before any legal action involving the child begins, depending on which happens first.

After 60 days, challenging the AOP in a court setting is possible under specific conditions, but can be much more difficult.
