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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Sandy Springs DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Sandy Springs, Georgia – DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Sandy Springs, Georgia

Three methods can be used to establish paternity in Sandy Springs, Georgia. First, if the father is married to the child’s mother when the child is born, he will be automatically presumed as a legal father, and no further action is needed. Alternatively, parents can sign a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment (VPA) form if they are not married. The VPA can be signed at the hospital after the baby is born, or later on at the Office of Vital Records. This method is one of the simplest and fastest ways to establish paternity, but parents should be sure about paternity before doing so.

The third option for establishing paternity is via court. People usually decide to go to court when unsure about paternity or when they also want to establish visitation, custody, and child support. In Georgia, it is common for the judge to ask the father and the child to undergo a DNA test. Genetic testing is an easy and accurate method of proving paternity. Once the judge receives the DNA results, he can determine paternity.

Sandy Springs, Georgia: Challenging paternity

If a father is unsure if the child is his, he can challenge paternity even if it has already been established. If he has already signed a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement form, he has sixty days to prove whether he is the biological father.

The easiest way of challenging paternity is to have medical evidence of vasectomy or infertility or take a DNA test. DNA testing can show the relationship between the child and the father with an accuracy of 99 percent or more.

If the court has already established paternity or more than sixty days have passed since the VPA form has been signed, the paternity case can be significantly more complex. Often, a family lawyer is used to help determine the next steps.
