DNA Test - Savannah, Georgia

Savannah GA DNA Testing Locations

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

Savannah, Georgia - DNA Testing

Local DNA Stories

In June of 2020, two sisters met in Savannah for the first time, thanks to DNA testing.

Estelle Mannion and her son, Steven, took a DNA test. Meanwhile, In March of 2020, Yolanda Collier also took a DNA test and was alerted to a possible match with Estelle and Steven. After doing some digging, Yolanda found Nicole Mannion, Steven's sister, and she messaged her on social media, asking her if she knew anyone named Harry Chisolm, who happened to be Nicole's grandfather, also the father of Estelle. Harry Chisolm was also the father of Deresa Pace, Yolanda's mother. Nicole shared information with Estelle about Deresa and Yolanda, and Estelle was able to contact her sister Deresa. Estelle, in her 70s, and her sister, in her 60s, met in June of the same year and continue to grow their relationship.

Experts Say...

Erin Muldoon Haug, a Savannah attorney, says that even if a man is on a child's birth certificate, if the parents are unmarried, only the mother has legal rights to the child. "If the father wants custody or visitation rights or if the mother is seeking child support, paternity must be established," said Haug, "A simple DNA test can establish biological paternity, but it does not establish legal paternity in Georgia."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Savannah, GA

Paternity is automatically established if the parents are married when a child is born, and the husband becomes the child's legal father. But in Savannah, if two unmarried parents have a child, paternity must be established for the child to have a legal father. Unmarried parents in Savannah can establish paternity by signing a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement form. If the parents do not agree to sign the voluntary form, they can establish paternity in court, and the court may order DNA testing to prove paternity. If the DNA test proves a man is not the father, the case is dismissed. If the DNA test cannot exclude a man as the child's father, there will be a court hearing to resolve the case.
