DNA Test - Port Saint Lucie, Florida

Port Saint Lucie FL DNA Testing Locations

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

Port Saint Lucie, Florida - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Port Saint Lucie, FL

Florida law assumes the husband is the father when a baby is born to married parents. However, if the parents are not married, they must establish paternity, which can be done voluntarily or by the court.

When parents sign a Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity form, the alleged father becomes a legal father. After sixty days from signing this form, it is legally binding. During the sixty days, either parent has the right to retract it if they have proof of fraud or if extreme force was used.

Another option is a court order, which can be sought by the mother, the child, the alleged father, or even The Florida Department of Child Support Services. If this happens, the court usually orders a DNA test to prove whether the alleged father is the biological father. After the results come back, the judge can establish paternity.

DNA test reunites Florida family

Melissa Hall said her parents gave her up for adoption because she was a "brown baby." They were college students, and her mom was White Hispanic. Although she loved her adoptive parents, she wanted to know about her biological parents too. She took a DNA test that connected her to her cousins and reconnected her with her family from Florida!

Melissa sent messages to each of her cousins. When they responded, they started to tell her more about her father. They communicated from a distance for two years until finally they met in Florida. The connection was strong right away. She got to see pictures of her father and grandfather, but unfortunately, they both passed away. Melissa was sad to hear this news but still could not be happier to get to know her dad's side of the family.
