DNA Test - Rohnert Park, California

Rohnert Park CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Rohnert Park, California 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 Rohnert Park 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 Rohnert Park, CA and Sonoma County

In Rohnert Park, CA, and Sonoma County, there are three ways to establish paternity.

Signing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage or Paternity. When both parents are unmarried, they can choose to sign a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage or Paternity, which is a legal document to declare that they are the parents of the child. If both parents agree to sign this document at the time of the baby's birth, both parents' names will be on the birth certificate and the mother will not need to go to court to prove paternity. Once the form is signed, a judge can give orders regarding visitation, custody, and child support.
Your local child support agency. The child support agency is part of the Department of Child Support Services (DCSS) of Sonoma County and can bring an action to establish the paternity of your child. A case can be made even while the mother is still pregnant, and it may require DNA testing to prove paternity.
Go to court. You can go to court yourself and open a case to establish parentage. You will be responsible for filling out, serving, and filing several court forms. Either parent can open a case. A case also allows the parents to ask about custody, visitation, and child support orders.

Experts Say...

According to Bruce A. Mandel of Divorce and Family Law in California, financial support, custody, and being part of the child's life are benefits to establishing paternity, but there are also additional benefits, such as:

Legal documentation identifying both parents
Having the names of both parents on the child's birth certificate
Access to family medical records and history
Health and life insurance coverage from both parents
The right to inherit from either parent
The right to receive social security and veteran's benefits, if available
The father can sign documents on behalf of the child, such as releases and permission forms
