Prattville AL DNA Testing Locations

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

Prattville, AL - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Prattville

When a child is born to unmarried parents in Alabama, the child does not have a legal father until steps are taken to establish paternity. According to the Prattville-based Harris Law Firm, the easiest way to establish paternity is for both parents to sign and file a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form. Alternatively, an interested party can file a petition with the courts to establish paternity. If there is a question regarding the identity of the child's biological father, the courts may order a DNA test. If the results show the man is the child's biological father, the courts will issue a ruling deeming him the child's legal father.

Alabama's Presumption of Paternity

The state of Alabama has a presumption of paternity, which goes into effect if a child's mother is married at the time of the child's birth or was married in the 300 days preceding the child's birth. Information provided by attorney Bradford Ladner, who serves clients in Prattville and the surrounding area, states that paternity may also be presumed if a man consents to have his name added to a child's birth certificate or if he "receives the child into his home," openly holds the child out as his own, or otherwise provides financial or emotional support for the child.

The Connection Between Paternity and Child Support

Before a mother can request a court order for child support, legal paternity must be established. If the father denies paternity of the child, a DNA test may be required to prove whether he is the child's biological father. The Child Support and Social Service Office can assist individuals with locating a child's biological father and establishing paternity. Prattville residents can seek assistance from the Prattville AL Child Support and Social Service Office, located at 203 North Court Street, Prattville, AL 36067.
