Workforce Screening, Digitally Delivered

The office was hard to find as the building it is in is not numbered. The office was late for the appointment we made by almost 45 minutes. Probably due to being understaffed. There was only 1 person working there. They were having to do check in and the actual procedures too.

DNA Test – Round Rock, Texas

Round Rock TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Round Rock, Texas 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 Round Rock 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 Round Rock, TX

For parents that are married, paternity does not need to be established and the husband is automatically made the child’s legal father. But in Round Rock, TX, for those that are not married, paternity will need to be established.

One way you can establish paternity in Round Rock, TX is by signing an Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP), which is a document that is voluntarily signed by both parents.

If two parents are in a disagreement about who the father is, the court may order a DNA paternity test to prove paternity. DNA testing may also be necessary to determine mistaken paternity, which terminates the parent-child relationship and the duty to pay child support.

If you are the father and wish to be added to the child’s birth certificate, you will need to establish paternity first and then apply for a New Birth Certificate Based on Parentage.

Experts Say…

The Law Office of Bryan Fagan, PLLC of Texas discusses the importance of establishing paternity by saying, “The word paternity, simply put, means the legal determination of who the father of a child is… If your child is born without you being married to her mother, you will have to go to extra lengths in order to be acknowledged legally as the father of the child. The process of establishing paternity is essential to creating a legal bond between you and your child, as well as furthering the already natural bond that you feel with your offspring… Paternity means that you are legally connected to your child. There are benefits that you, your child, and the mother of your child can derive from this relationship between you and your kiddo… It is important to establish an identity for him or her.”
