DNA Test - Pinellas Park, Florida

Pinellas Park FL DNA Testing Locations

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

How to Establish Paternity in Florida

In Florida, when a child is born to parents who are married, the mother's husband is presumed to be the child's father. When the parents aren't married, they'll need to take steps to establish legal paternity. According to Nilo J. Sanchez & Associates, Tampa divorce and family law attorneys serving Pinellas Park and the surrounding area, there are two primary ways to establish paternity in Florida.

The first (and easiest) is for both parents to sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity Form (VOP). The other is through a court order by a judge. In this case, a DNA paternity test is almost always required.

The Impact of Paternity on Custody & Support

Once a man has been named a child's legal father, he's obligated to provide financial support for that child. However, he does not automatically receive custody or visitation rights. According to experts at the Pinellas Park Golden Key Law Group, custody issues and visitation rights (called timesharing in Florida) are decided by a judge when a paternity action is filed. If paternity is established using a VOP, the parents will need to go to court and allow the judge to rule on the issues of visitation and custody. The courts will also determine the amount of child support the man is required to pay.

In Florida, family law matters are decided in Civil Court. All domestic relations cases in Pinellas County are held at the Clerk of the Circuit Court, located at 315 Court Street, Clearwater, Florida 33756

Disestablishing Paternity

In the state of Florida, it is possible to disestablish paternity, even after it has been legally established and an order of child support is in place. However, it's not easy. Attorneys at Bubley & Bubley, P.A., who serve the Pinellas Park area, state that this can only be done in limited circumstances and requires you to strictly follow legal procedure. When it comes to disproving paternity in Florida, it's critical to work with a skilled attorney with experience in this matter.
