DNA Test - Sanford, Florida

Sanford FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Sanford, Florida locations:

The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Paternity Testing can be performed at our testing centers. DNA Testing can be done for other close family relationships, such as:

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 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 Sanford DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Sanford, Florida - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Sanford, FL

Unmarried parents from Sanford, Florida, can establish paternity in two ways:

A legal order
Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment

In many cases, parents sign the Paternity Acknowledgment form at the hospital once the baby is born in the presence of a notary public. The hospital then sends the form to the Florida Bureau of Vital Statistics, and the man will become the legal father.

Sometimes, parents may disagree, not communicate with one another, or have other reasons why they do not want to sign the acknowledgment. In these cases, they may decide to go to court and let the judge decide about paternity instead.

For those seeking DNA testing services, whether for legal reasons or personal clarity, Health Street offers reliable DNA testing services. We provide legal paternity tests with high accuracy and fast turnaround time. Our DNA tests are non-invasive and highly accurate. Register online and book an appointment in one of our clinics in Sanford, Florida.

Sanford, Florida: Benefits of establishing paternity

If parents are not married when their child is born, and they do not establish paternity, their child may be missing out on multiple benefits, such as:

Having both parents on the birth certificate
Having access to information on medical history from both sides of the family
Health and life insurance from either parent
Financial support from both parents
Social Security
The right to inherit from both parents
Possible entitlements to veteran's benefits and military allowances
Eligibility for disability benefits, if applicable

Without established paternity, the father has no legal obligations or rights concerning the child. This absence of a legal bond means he's not required to provide child support and cannot seek custody or visitation rights. Establishing paternity legally solidifies the father's role and responsibilities, offering substantial support and security for the child's future.
