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.

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.

Establishing paternity in Plymouth, MN

In Plymouth, Minnesota, establishing paternity is an important consideration for unwed parents. Doing so can provide benefits for the father, mother, and the child. If the parents are not married when the baby is born, paternity will need to be established in order for there to be a legal father. Parents can either sign the Recognition of Parentage form or go to court to legally establish paternity. The Recognition of Parentage form should only be signed if parents are in agreement about paternity. After the form is filed with the Minnesota Department of Health, it holds the same legal value as a court order.

As a leading provider of DNA and paternity testing services, Health Street understands the importance of fast and accurate paternity testing. We offer several of painless DNA testing services to determine relationships between alleged family members.

Plymouth, Minnesota: Reasons to establish paternity

Mothers can request child support only if the man is legally determined to be the father. After paternity is established, the child could be entitled to benefits like:

Social Security
Health insurance
Inheritance from the father

Establishing paternity can also allow the child to develop a strong sense of identity and build better relationships with both parents. The child can even gain access to medical histories from both sides of the family.

For fathers, establishing paternity means being legally recognized as the father of the child. This recognition grants fathers the right to seek custody and parenting time with the child, and make important decisions regarding their health, education, and upbringing. Establishing paternity can be an important factor for ensuring that both parents can contribute to their child's development and well-being.

Health Street offers a variety of Plymouth DNA and paternity tests that are accurate, reliable, and legally admissible in court.
