DNA Test - Pompano Beach, Florida

Pompano Beach FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Pompano Beach, Florida locations:

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.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

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 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Pompano Beach DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Pompano Beach, Florida - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Pompano Beach family attorneys at the Law Offices of Cheryl Bucker, P.A. reveal the importance of establishing paternity in Pompano Beach and the state of Florida. "Under Florida law, unless a father establishes legal paternity of his child through the court, he has no rights to visitation with the child or child custody," the law firm says. "Additionally, the other parent will not be able to collect child support from the father of the child until legal paternity has been established."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Pompano Beach, FL

If a child is born to married parents in Pompano Beach, the husband is presumed the child's father and paternity is automatically established. However, if the parents are not married, paternity must be established for the biological father to become the child's legal father. Paternity can be established through Acknowledgment of Paternity or legitimation. An Acknowledgment of Paternity form can be signed as long as both parents agree on paternity. Legitimation occurs if the two parents marry after the child is born. They can establish paternity while applying for their marriage license. If the parents cannot agree on paternity, paternity can still be established through a court case. In this case, the judge may order DNA testing to prove paternity.

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Pompano Beach, FL

Establishing paternity provides certain rights to the mother, father, and child. The child benefits from paternity by having access to medical records from both families, having an opportunity to develop relationships with both parents, and having access to medical benefits, insurance, social security, veteran's benefits, or other available benefits. Legal paternity allows the father's name to be on the birth certificate and gives both parents the right to obtain visitation, custody, and child support orders.
