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.

arrow_forward_ios
Parents can seek a court order to establish paternity. This typically happens when there is uncertainty about the biological father, and either parent can request the court to order DNA testing. After paternity has been established, the judge may also establish custody, visitation, and child support if necessary.

Establishing legal paternity is not just a legal formality; it holds significant benefits for the child involved. It can provide them with a sense of identity, belonging, and emotional stability. Knowing their biological father and having their parentage officially recognized can boost their self-esteem and foster a stronger bond with their father. Legal paternity can ensure the child’s access to vital financial support, including child support, medical insurance, and inheritance rights. It can also secure the father’s legal rights, such as custody and visitation.

By choosing Health Street for DNA and paternity testing, you can confidently establish legal paternity and provide your child with a stable foundation for a brighter future. Don’t let uncertainty overshadow your child’s future.

Former MLB closer Mike Henneman finds seven long-lost siblings through DNA test

Mike Henneman is originally from Saint Charles, Missouri, but he only lived there for a few weeks before he was adopted. In 2017, Mike’s wife Meredith encouraged him to take a DNA test so he could learn more about his past. The test results revealed a surprising revelation—he had five brothers and two sisters. When he met his new siblings, an immediate connection and resemblance to their late father were evident. It was discovered that Mike, born from an affair, had been given up for adoption. His biological father’s wife was aware of the situation but chose to remain with her husband and raise their children.

Mike just recently discovered he might have another two sisters from his biological mother’s side, but he is currently waiting for more information about that.
