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 San Angelo DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Facts about DNA Testing in San Angelo TX
Man Born in San Angelo Discovers Brother He Didn’t Know He Had Through DNA Testing
When Clayton Alred, who was born in San Angelo, learned that he had a biological brother, he was already 69 years old. However, that didn’t stop him from getting to know his new family.
The saga began when Dennis McMillan found an obituary belonging to his biological grandfather. His adopted mother had saved the newspaper clipping and it was discovered after she passed away. The obituary included a list of survivors, and one name was circled. McMillan deduced that the circled name was that of his father. He used this information, along with the results of a DNA test, to locate his long lost brother, Clayton Alred.
When they met, they found that they had much in common, including having worked for the same boss at different times. The two also looked surprisingly alike and often even found themselves wearing similar outfits. Several members of Alred’s family have met McMillan and they continue to make plans to meet up and attend college games together.
French Man Discovers Father in San Angelo After 50 Years
Nordine Mohamedi, a French citizen, spent most of his life searching for his father. However, until he was able to take a DNA test, he never made much progress. His mother worked at a tavern in France and met his father during the Vietnam war. She knew that he was American, but couldn’t give him any more details.
Now, Mohamedi knows that his father’s name was John Wayne Nelson. He was originally from Texas and was thought to have been killed in battle during the war. He actually recovered and was released from duty, but then died in a vehicle accident weeks later. Mohamedi and his daughter were able to travel to Texas to visit Nelson’s grave and met his father’s only surviving sibling — a 76-year-old sister who lives in San Angelo.
After the discovery, Mohamedi began the process of changing his name to John Wayne Nelson to pay tribute to his deceased father.
DNA Test Results Create Legal Obligations
According to San Angelo attorney Jimmy Stewart, many people aren’t aware that both parents of a child are legally obligated to provide support. This is true even if they were never married and regardless of the child’s last name. Once a DNA test proves paternity, the man will have financial obligations and can petition for visitation and/or custody. Due to the complex and very serious nature of these issues, it’s usually a good idea to consult with an attorney who can help guide you through the process.</p
