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.

South Weymouth, MA - DNA Testing

How to Establish Paternity in Massachusetts

In the state of Massachusetts, there are times when steps must be taken to establish a child's parentage. Elizabeth L. Stiritz Attorney at Law, a firm that serves clients in South Weymouth and the surrounding area, states that if a couple is married at the time of a child's birth, paternity is established automatically. For unmarried couples, paternity can be established by completing a voluntary acknowledgment of parentage form. This is an option when both parents agree about the identity of the child's biological father. Otherwise, a complaint must be filed in court to establish legal paternity.

Filing for Paternity in Court

When paternity is contested, the courts must get involved. According to experts at Farias Family Law, which handles paternity cases in the South Weymouth area, fathers have equal rights to their children but must first take steps to ensure the courts recognize them as the child's legal parent. Fathers can request this ruling by filing the appropriate documents with their local probate and family court. South Weymouth residents can initiate their request at the Norfolk Probate and Family Court, which is located at 35 Shawmut Road, Canton, MA 02021.

Reasons to Settle Paternity Disputes

When a child's parents have a good relationship, it's common to wonder whether it's worth the effort to establish legal paternity. South Weymouth-area Attorney Bruce L. Watson explains that legal paternity often becomes a priority when a child's mother wants to establish child support, or the father is attempting to preserve visitation rights.

If a man is alleged to be a child's biological father and can prove through genetic testing that he is not, he may be able to get a ruling from the court to terminate child support payments. At that point, visitation and custody agreements are typically modified as well. During the process, the courts may order a DNA test to determine whether the man is the child's biological father.
