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.

Redlands, California – DNA Testing
Redlands paternity lawyers at the Law Offices of Kimberly Prendergast explain that by establishing paternity, parents sign an official court document stating the child’s legal parents. “Once a person is established as a legal parent of the child, they will have all the rights and responsibilities of a parent,” explains the law firm, “As such, establishing parentage is necessary before custody, visitation, or child support pertaining to the other parent can be ordered by the court.”
The Importance of Establishing Paternity in Redlands, CA
Establishing paternity is important for all parties involved, especially for the child. A child with two legal parents has the opportunity to develop an emotional bond with both parents and receive the same benefits as a child born to married parents. Once paternity is established, the child gains access to financial support from both parents and legal documentation for both parents, has both parents on the birth certificate, and has access to family medical records, inheritance, social security, and other available benefits.
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Redlands, CA
Unmarried parents in Redlands, CA can establish paternity by signing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage or Paternitystating they are the child’s legal parents. This legal form can be difficult to undo, so parents must be sure about paternity. If there are any doubts about the child’s biological father, the form should not be signed until a DNA test proves paternity. Parents can also establish paternity through a court order, and the judge may order a DNA test to determine the child’s father. DNA samples are taken from a cheek swab inside the mouth. In Redlands, DNA samples must be analyzed in a certified laboratory; the court does not accept in-home tests or testing in a private medical facility.
