Sevierville TN DNA Testing 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)

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.

Sevierville, TN - DNA Testing

DNA Test Reunites Half-Siblings in Sevierville After Nearly 60 Years

When Sevierville resident Perry Bonck received a DNA test for Christmas several years ago, he didn't expect it to help him find a blood relative who had been searching for him. He took the test expecting to learn about his ancestry and family history, but it led him to Susan Baroni, a half-sister who had been given up for adoption shortly after her birth. She had begun a search for her family almost a decade earlier but had "put it on the back burner" until she decided to start her search again and things came together quickly.

When Bronck took his DNA test, it produced a 100% match to an individual who was either a step-sibling or a cousin. The two connected and later, Baroni, Bronck, and their father met for the first time in Sevierville to celebrate their dad's 84th birthday.

Establishing Paternity in Tennessee

According to White and White Attorneys at Law, a firm that serves Sevierville and the surrounding area, there are two primary ways to establish paternity in Tennessee when a child's parents are unmarried. The first is for both parents to sign and file a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity form. This form also adds the father's name to the child's birth certificate.

If it's not possible to voluntarily establish paternity, it can be done through a court order. In this case, both parents must appear in court and the courts may require a DNA test.

Rights and Responsibilities of Legal Parents in Tennessee

Establishing a child's legal paternity creates significant rights and responsibilities for both parents. It can also give the child a sense of identity and access to their full medical history. A child's legal parents can pursue their rights to have a relationship with their child, which may include visitation and/or custody.

Both parents also have the legal responsibility to financially support their child. A child support order can help ensure this happens. Sevierville residents needing assistance with establishing child support can contact their local Child Support Office, located at 1052 S. Highway 92, Dandridge, TN 37725.
