DNA Test - Plant City, Florida

Plant City FL DNA Testing Locations

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

Plant City, FL - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

The Law Office of David Hurvitz, serving Plant City, explains cases for establishing paternity in Plant City and the state of Florida. "Any woman who is pregnant or has a child, any man who has reason to believe that he is the father of a child, or any child, may bring proceedings in the circuit court to determine the paternity of the child when paternity has not been established by law or otherwise," stated the law firm. The law firm said that paternity cases are necessary when unmarried parents cannot agree on time-sharing. "Unfortunately in the State of Florida the father is unable to legally exercise his time-sharing rights when the mother objects. This situation is unnecessary when both the mother and father are married at the time the child is born," the law firm added.

Establishing Paternity in Plant City, FL

Establishing paternity is the process of a biological father becoming a child's legal father. In Plant City, if a child is born to married parents, the husband is presumed to be the child's legal father, and the parents do not need to establish paternity. However, if a child is born to unmarried parents, they must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. The easiest way to establish paternity in Plant City is by signing an Acknowledgment of Paternity, which is a voluntary form that both parents must agree to sign. If the parents cannot agree to establish paternity voluntarily, they can go to court, and the judge will likely order a DNA test to determine the child's biological father.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Plant City, FL

Florida Statutes Section 742.12 allows the court to require the parents and child to submit to DNA testing to prove paternity. DNA testing samples are taken with a cheek swab and sent to a certified laboratory for analysis. DNA test results determine the probability that a man is the child's biological father.
