DNA Test - Schaumburg, Illinois

Schaumburg IL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Schaumburg, Illinois 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

Establishing paternity in Schaumburg, IL

Unmarried parents in Schaumburg, Illinois, have two options for establishing paternity. If they have no doubts and agree on paternity, they can sign the Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity. This option is available at the hospital, and the staff can assist them. If they don't sign it at the hospital, they can sign it later, but they need a witness present. After filling and signing the papers, the document must be filed with the Department of Healthcare.

If there are doubts or uncertainties regarding paternity, parents often go to court, where a judge will usually order a DNA test to determine paternity. This process involves DNA testing for the alleged father and child to provide evidence of paternity. Upon confirmation of paternity, the judge may proceed to establish child custody, visitation schedules, and child support arrangements.
