DNA Test - Reserve, Louisiana

Reserve LA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Reserve, Louisiana 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:

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 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 Reserve 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 Reserve, LA

When unmarried parents have a child in Reserve, LA, they will need to establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. Paternity can be established by signing an Affidavit of Acknowledgment or by a paternity lawsuit.

The Affidavit of Acknowledgment is voluntary and should not be signed if there is a doubt as to who the biological father is. In this case, DNA testing should be requested to prove paternity before signing the affidavit.

The courts may also establish paternity. This can be done by bringing a paternity action to the court. The mother, alleged father, or child may begin the paternity action. If either party requests DNA testing, it will be ordered by the court and samples must be submitted by all three individuals. A final paternity judgment will be ordered by the court once the alleged father is shown to be the child's biological father.

Once paternity is established, the father becomes legally responsible for the child, and the court will give orders regarding financial support, custody, and visitation rights. The father will also have his name added to the birth certificate once paternity is officially established.
