DNA Test - Silverdale, Washington

Silverdale WA DNA Testing Locations

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

Silverdale, WA - DNA Testing

Why Establish Paternity in Silverdale, WA?

Silverdale parents who recently had a child but are not legally married must understand the importance of establishing paternity in the state of Washington. Without the presence of a legal marriage, the state is unable to assume the identity of the child's biological father and will require both parents to establish paternity in Silverdale to do so.

When two Silverdale parents establish paternity, they effectively declare the child's legal father, allowing for his name to be placed on the birth certificate and issuing his paternity rights and responsibilities. Furthermore, with two legal parents, the child can obtain various benefits, such as health insurance coverage, inheritance, and social security from either parent if necessary.

How to Establish Paternity in Silverdale, WA

In the state of Washington, the easiest way for Silverdale parents to establish paternity after the birth of a child is through the completion of an Acknowledgment of Parentage. This form must be signed and completed by both parents in the presence of a notary or a witness and properly submitted to the Washington State Department of Health, Center for Health Statistics.

Bear in mind that establishing paternity via an Acknowledgment of Parentage is completely voluntary and should only be done if both parents have full confidence in the child's father. If there is any question about who exactly a child's biological father is, a parent should first seek DNA paternity testing before establishing paternity in Silverdale to avoid legal complications.

When to Seek Assistance for Establishing Paternity in Silverdale, WA

During certain unfortunate circumstances, a Silverdale father or mother may refuse to establish paternity, making it highly difficult for the other parent to request monthly child support services, or in the case of the father, obtain parental rights. In such circumstances, a parent should promptly file a petition to establish parentage in Kitsap County Family Court to initiate the establishment process.

By filing a petition to establish paternity, a judge issues a summons to the opposing parent, which will require them to complete the necessary steps to establish paternity. This process will oftentimes require the use of DNA testing to confirm the child's biological father. Once the father is determined, paternity will be established as well as any parenting plans and child support agreements when necessary.
