DNA Test – Phoenix, Arizona

Phoenix AZ DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Phoenix, Arizona 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:

perm_identity
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
perm_identity
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
perm_identity
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 Phoenix DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody in Phoenix

The process for establishing legal paternity for child custody purposes in Phoenix begins with a paternity action. This action is filed by a person who has had a child with another person who is not their spouse. If paternity is disputed by one party, a DNA test can be requested. Officers of the court will order DNA testing through a state-approved and certified laboratory.

Once a paternity action is filed, a court establishes legal fatherhood, custody, parental access, child support and reimbursement of medical expenses incurred by pregnancy and childbirth. Alternatively, parents can attend mediation and submit the necessary forms to the court without attending trial.

However, DNA testing is crucial for a number of reasons outside of custody, including:

Medical History. Understanding inheritable health conditions and predispositions

Health Insurance. Ability to provide medical coverage for the child through the father’s health plan

Monetary Benefits. Establishing eligibility for social security, VA or life insurance benefits in the event the father passes or suffers a disability

Local DNA Testimonies

“I went from having one brother, and now I have three brothers and three sisters.” – Amy Measeles, whose DNA test led to the discovery of her biological father and five half-siblings, reported by Fox 10 Phoenix.

“It is like a part of me that was always searching is done.” – Kathleen Bischoff, whose DNA test resulted in reconnecting with her brother at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport after over 70 years apart.

“What a week”: A State Rep Discovers He Has A Daughter

In early 2020, Arizona state representative Jay Lawrence of Scottsdale gleefully informed his constituents that he had connected with a newfound long-lost daughter. Unbeknownst to Lawrence, his daughter was conceived in Idaho over 40 years ago while the elected official was serving in the Air Force.

According to news reports at the time, Lawrence’s biological daughter visited his office in Phoenix to inform him of the relation, which she discovered after her own daughter took a DNA test.

“I find out I have a daughter from an Air Force affair,” Lawrence wrote in a tweet. “What a week.”
