DNA Test - Slidell, Louisiana

Slidell LA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Slidell, Louisiana 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:

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

Slidell, LA - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

"According to the Louisiana Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (RS 13:1801), any biological parent has the right to seek visitation rights or child custody," said Slidell law firm, Stanley-Wallace Law, "Their rights do not hinge on whether they are married to the child's other parent, or even whether they were married when the child was born." The law firm continued, "In order to gain access to the father's rights, fathers who were not married to the child's mother when the child was born must legally establish paternity." The firm added, "Legally establishing paternity allows an unmarried father to seek visitation or other custody rights, which can either be negotiated with the other parent through a parenting plan or established by court order."

Establishing Paternity in Slidell, LA

Unmarried Slidell parents must establish paternity for their child to have a legal father. The easiest way to establish paternity is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity form, which is voluntary, and both parents must agree to sign the form. If parents cannot establish paternity voluntarily, they can go to court.

Establishing paternity provides benefits to the father, mother, and especially the child. Fathers gain rights to the child and can add their name to the child's birth certificate. Mothers receive help with financial and parental responsibilities and with decision-making. Establishing paternity gives children the same benefits as children born to married parents, like a sense of identity, a relationship with two parents, access to medical records from both families and access to medical and life insurance and other available benefits.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Slidell, LA

DNA testing provides an easy, painless solution to determining the child's biological father. Slidell parents who doubt paternity or are unsure of the child's father should not sign a paternity acknowledgment form until they use a DNA test to prove paternity. DNA test results determine show a probability of 99.9% that a man is the child's biological father. DNA test samples can be taken from children as young as newborns.
