DNA Test - Royal Oak, Michigan

Royal Oak MI DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Royal Oak, Michigan clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Royal Oak DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Royal Oak, Michigan - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Royal Oak, MI

The Law Offices of Michael A. Robbins, a respected law firm in Royal Oak, highlights three main ways to decide who the dad is:

  1. If parents are married: If a baby is born while the parents are married, the husband is automatically considered the dad
  2. Using a paper form: If the parents aren't married, they can fill out and sign a special form called the "Affidavit of Parentage"
  3. Asking the court: If there's doubt or disagreement, parents or even the court itself might ask for a DNA test to be sure

If there is any reason why you do not wish to establish paternity or have doubts about being the biological father, you should not sign the Affidavit. However, either parent can still go to court and ask the judge to establish paternity. The court may order a DNA test to prove their relationship and determine if they are related.

Sometimes, parents wish to do a DNA test just for their peace of mind; other times, they may need it for legal purposes. Health Street offers both Home DNA tests and legal paternity tests. Our DNA testing options are 99.9 percent accurate and painless.
