DNA Test – Provo, Utah

Provo UT DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Provo, Utah 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:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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 Provo DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Provo, UT

In Provo, UT, paternity will need to be established if a child was born to two parents that were not married at the time of birth or within 300 days.

There are three ways to establish paternity in Provo, UT.

filter_1
Signing a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity (VDP). Unmarried parents who agree on who the father is can choose to sign this legal form. It will be filed with the Office of Vital Records and Statistics. Once it’s filed, the father’s name will be added to the birth certificate. If the parents wish, the child can then take the father’s last name, as long as the child is under five years of age.
filter_2
An Administrative Paternity Order may be pursued by the Office of Recovery Service’s Child Support Services when one parent applies for child support.
filter_3
A Judicial Paternity Order is the result of a court action. If either parent has doubts about who the father is, DNA testing will be ordered to prove paternity. When DNA testing is done to prove paternity, the child, mother, and father will all be tested. If the father is indeed the biological father, the court will issue an order of paternity and his name will be added to the birth certificate.
