DNA Test – San Jose, California

San Jose CA DNA Testing Locations

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

Establishing Paternity in San Jose

Establishing paternity is critical to ensuring that a child receives adequate financial support and that the child’s father can establish a visitation schedule. However, when parents in the state of California aren’t married, paternity often isn’t legally established at birth. According to San Jose law firm Morgan, Tidalgo, Sukhodrev, Azzolino, LLP, “One of the first steps in helping to clear the path to a child support order or a case for child custody is a DNA paternity test. This technology is over 99.99 percent accurate and produces conclusive answers regarding any child’s parentage.”

Once the DNA paternity test has been completed, there is little doubt as to who the child’s father is. This increases the probability that the child will receive financial support and gives the father the opportunity to form an emotional relationship with his child. A parent who is interested in pursuing child support or visitation will often want to start by consulting with a family law attorney to discuss the process of requesting a paternity order from the courts.

While close to one-fourth of the city’s residents earn more than $200,000 per year, there’s also a critical affordable housing crisis.
