Saint Peters MO DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Saint Peters, Missouri 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.

Our Saint Peters DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Saint Peters, Missouri - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Saint Peters, MO

For those in Saint Peters, Missouri, expecting a child outside of marriage, establishing paternity is an essential step. There are two primary ways to do this:

Signing an Affidavit Acknowledging Paternity: This can be done at the hospital after the baby is born, or later on through the Family Support Division or Bureau of Vital Records
Court order: Alternatively, paternity can be legalized through a court order

Establishing paternity establishes a man as the legal father of the child. However, the decision should be made with confidence because the Affidavit is legally binding, much like a court order.

In cases of doubt or disagreement, a DNA test is commonly used to confirm the biological father. In Missouri, a DNA test result showing at least a 98% probability means that the man is presumed to be the father. Although home DNA tests are available, they should be used only for peace of mind and are not intended for legal purposes.

Saint Peters, Missouri: Benefits of establishing paternity

It is important to understand the benefits of legal paternity in order to make an informed decision. When legal paternity is established, the child can gain benefits like:

Financial support from both support
The father's health insurance
Inheritance from both parents
Social Security and Veterans benefits, if available

If a father decides not to establish paternity, he can miss out on legal rights like going to court for custody or visitation hours.
