DNA Test - Prescott Valley, Arizona

Prescott Valley AZ DNA Testing Locations

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

Prescott Valley, Arizona - DNA Testing

How to Establish Paternity in Arizona

Under Arizona law, there are three primary ways to establish a child's legal paternity:

Presumption of paternity - If a child's parents are married at the time of birth or were married in the 300 days prior to the birth, the mother's husband is presumed to be the child's legal father and no further action is needed.
Voluntary acknowledgment - Both parents can sign a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form and file it with the appropriate agency.
Court action - An interested party can ask the courts to establish the child's legal paternity.

Prescott Valley residents can begin a court action by filing a Petition for Paternity, Legal Decision-Making, Parenting Time and Child Support, which can be found on the Yavapai County Self-Service website.

Benefits of Establishing Legal Paternity

According to family law experts at Willison Law, PC, which serves clients in Prescott Valley and the surrounding area, there are several important reasons to establish a child's legal paternity. Doing so allows a child's father to establish his rights to visitation and/or custody of the child, and the mother secures the right to receive financial support for the child.

Without the legal establishment of paternity, a father has no obligation to pay child support; however, he can also risk losing the ability to see the child, as visitation is not guaranteed. In addition, establishing legal paternity gives the child access to both parent's Social Security and veterans' benefits, life and health issuance benefits, and more.

The Role of DNA Testing in Establishing Paternity

When both parents agree to sign an Affidavit of Paternity, a DNA test is not required. However, if there is any doubt about the identity of the child's father, a DNA test can help resolve the matter. According to experts at Hildebrand Law, which serves clients in the Prescott Valley area, if a DNA test shows there is a 95% or greater chance a man is the child's father, the judge can use this to presume paternity. In this case, a man who still disputes the results has the burden of proof to show he's not the father using clear and convincing evidence.
