Pleasanton CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Pleasanton, California clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

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 Pleasanton DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

DNA Test Pleasanton California

Establishing paternity in Pleasanton, California

In California, the law assumes that married parents are the child's biological parents. For married parents, there is no legal requirement to establish paternity. However, if parents are unmarried when the child is born, legal parentage should be established. In Pleasanton, California, parents can establish parentage by signing the Declaration of Parentage. The form can be completed at the hospital with the assistance of professional staff. The Declaration of Parentage is then filed with the Department of Child Support Services. Signing the form is legally binding. This should be signed voluntarily, and no one should be forced into signing it.

If there is any uncertainty about parentage, parents should not sign the Declaration of Parentage. Instead, many alleged parents decide to independently take DNA tests, or establish parentage in court. DNA testing is often a part of the court process, and the alleged father and child will typically be asked to undergo a DNA test to establish their relationship.

Health Street provides reliable and accurate DNA testing services. With a range of legal DNA testing options, Health Street's tests can be admissible in court.

Pleasanton, CA: Disputing parentage

In cases where there is doubt about paternity, it is important to take the proper steps before signing any legally binding documents. If unsure about parentage, many people choose to undergo a DNA test to determine the biological father. Parentage laws in California can be quite complex, and sometimes a person who is not the biological parent can be declared as the legal parent. After parentage has been established, it can be difficult to dispute without the help of a family lawyer.

At Health Street, we offer DNA testing services to provide peace of mind and clarity regarding parentage. Our tests can help resolve disputes regarding parentage, establish legal relationships, and provide important information for custody, visitation, and child support decisions.
