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 Seaford DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Local DNA Testing for Seaford, NY

Experts Say…

Wisselman, Harounian, & Associates P.C., serving Seaford, NY, describes fathers’ rights and the importance of establishing paternity. “Historically, when spouses decided to legally separate or divorce, the mother was always awarded custody of the children,” they said. “Today, the laws are very different due to society’s increasing awareness and promotion of a father’s rights and the ability of either sex to parent.” The law firm explains that “fathers’ rights” are parental rights and responsibilities fathers have regarding their children. When awarding custody in Seaford, NY, the courts carefully determine what is in the best interest of the child. “It is important to note that in the state of New York, unmarried fathers or those who failed to sign an ‘Acknowledgement of Paternity’ cannot be granted custody or visitation rights without first legally establishing paternity.”

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Seaford, NY

In Seaford, NY, the child of unmarried parents does not have a legal father until paternity is established. Paternity can be established voluntarily if both parents sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity. If paternity is questionable, DNA testing can be used to prove paternity before signing the legal Acknowledgement of Paternity form. Paternity can also be established by the court and either parent can file a paternity petition in family court. If the mother and alleged father cannot agree about who the biological father is the court will likely order DNA testing for paternity. If the alleged father is not the biological father, the petition will be dismissed. If he is the biological father, paternity can be established, and an Order of Filiation will be issued by the court. If the parents still do not agree on paternity, a court hearing will be scheduled, and DNA testing will be considered in the hearing.

Once paternity is established, the parents can file petitions for child support, custody, and visitation rights.
