DNA Test - Sandy, Utah

Sandy UT DNA Testing Locations

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

Sandy, Utah - DNA Testing

Sandy, UT: Establishing paternity

Unmarried parents from Sandy, Utah, can establish paternity in several ways. They can sign and file a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity (VDP) or go through the courts to legally establish paternity.

Usually, if there is no doubt about paternity, parents sign the VDP at the hospital after the child's birth. After signing the documents, they must file them with the Department of Health. Then, the biological father becomes a legal parent and gains rights and responsibilities toward the child.

Either parent can file a court case asking the judge to establish paternity. As part of the process, the judge often asks the alleged father and the child to undergo genetic testing to prove if the alleged father is the child's biological father. After the DNA test results are received, the judge may consider them while establishing paternity. When legal paternity has been established, parents can also seek child support, custody, and visitation hours if necessary.

Sandy, Utah: Benefits of establishing paternity

Besides having the father's name on the child's birth certificate, there are numerous benefits for the child and parents when establishing paternity. Once paternity is established, the father can gain many rights and responsibilities, such as participating in essential decisions about the child's upbringing, health, or education. The father can also gain the right to share custody or visit his child. Parents will share financial and emotional support towards the child.

Additionally, the child can gain some crucial benefits if legal paternity is established, which can include:

Having a better sense of identity
Access to the medical history of both sides of the families
Health and life insurance
Social security, veterans benefits, and disability benefits, if applicable
The right to inherit from both parents
