DNA Test - San Clemente, California

San Clemente CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our San Clemente, California 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 San Clemente DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

San Clemente, California - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in San Clemente, California

If you just had a child in San Clemente, California, but are not married, consider establishing paternity. If there is no doubt about the identity of the biological father, you can sign the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDP) at the hospital after the child is born. Once the VDP is signed and filed, the father's name will be added to the child's birth certificate. He will be entitled to seek custody and visitation rights, and the mother could seek child support.

Another way of establishing paternity is through paternity action in court. According to California law, these people or agencies can ask for the court to establish paternity:

Child's mother
The alleged father who believes he is the biological father or who has been identified as the father
Child support agency
An adoption agency

When parents go to court, the judge often asks the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test so there is proof of paternity. Health Street provides DNA testing services that can help parents easily establish paternity. Our tests are 99.9% accurate and painless. A simple cheek swab makes the process quick and non-invasive.

San Clemente, California: Disputing paternity

Under California law, both parents can dispute paternity. Sometimes, parents may have signed the VDP and realized later that the legal father is not the biological father. Either way, if the paternity has yet to be established legally, usually, you have sixty days since signing the Voluntary Declaration of Parentage to dispute it. You will need a genetic test to prove you are not the biological father. In same-sex partnerships, one parent may be a co-parent, but if they never intended or agreed to be the child's parent, they can also dispute paternity.
