Saint Petersburg FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Saint Petersburg, Florida 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

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

Establishing paternity in Saint Petersburg, FL

Establishing paternity in Florida can provide children with many benefits to enrich their lives. For example, the father may be able to provide benefits such as health insurance, and there also may be some disability or military benefits. If paternity is established, the child can also be entitled to estate inheritance.

Parents can establish paternity via Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form or by court order. If both parties agree about who the father is, signing the form at the hospital is more straightforward than doing it later on, and there is no need for a court order. If parents must establish paternity through the court, the court will usually order a DNA test. Once the DNA results come back, the judge can establish paternity.

Father and son finally reunited after decades

Joseph lived with his mom his whole life and never knew much about his father. He asked many questions but did not get exactly the answers he wanted. Her story would always change a little bit, so more questions continued to arise. He thought he was conceived because of rape.

One day, he took a DNA test and found his biological father, Bobby Parker. Bobby said he had been wondering his whole life what had happened to Joseph, but he had problems with alcoholism. Now, he is sober and says he could not be happier to get to know his son at a time when he could see everything clearly and react appropriately.

Parker's wife was also very supportive and said they had so much in common and looked alike. They eventually met even with Joseph's kids, and his wife, and Bobby said he was proud to see how much love he had for his family.

The family is planning on spending Christmas and Thanksgiving together.
