DNA Test - Smyrna, Georgia

Smyrna GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Smyrna, Georgia 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

Smyrna, Georgia - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Smyrna, GA

When parents are married at the time of a child's birth, the husband is automatically recognized as the biological and legal father. However, for unwed parents in Georgia, additional steps are necessary to establish paternity. The common method is through a Paternity Acknowledgment form, available at hospitals or any Vital Records Office in Georgia. Once completed and notarized, this form is sent to the State Office of Vital Records for entry into the State Putative Father Registry.

However, sometimes parents are uncertain or disagree about paternity. In these situations, either parent can initiate a court proceeding to establish legal paternity in Smyrna. This usually involves obtaining a DNA test to provide conclusive evidence of the father's biological connection to the child.

If the judge decides to establish legal paternity, then decisions about custody, visitation hours, or child support can also be made.

Canceling a Paternity Acknowledgment in Smyrna

It's important for parents to be certain about paternity before signing a PA form, as it is legally binding. Signing it implies acceptance of a parental relationship. If doubts arise within 60 days of signing, the form can be rescinded. Beyond 60 days, challenging paternity requires a court procedure, where DNA testing may then be required.
