DNA Test - Spartanburg, South Carolina

Spartanburg SC DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Spartanburg, South Carolina 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

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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.

Our Spartanburg DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing Paternity in Spartanburg, SC

In South Carolina, paternity is a term used for legal fatherhood. When two Spartanburg parents are unmarried when their child is born, they will need to establish paternity to declare the legal father. Establishing paternity will grant the legal father his paternal rights and responsibilities, provide the child with expanded access to resources, and open the door to monthly child support assistance.

The simplest way to establish paternity in Spartanburg is through the completion of a Paternity Acknowledgement Affidavit. Spartanburg hospital staff will provide this form for completion after childbirth, though it should only be signed if there is complete confidence in the paternity of the child. If more than one man could be the child's father, genetic paternity testing must be used to ensure complete filing accuracy.

Paternity Programs in Spartanburg, SC

Spartanburg men who believe they have fathered a child should consider signing up for the Responsible Father Registry program to protect their paternal rights. Although registration is not a method of establishing paternity, any male 18 or older can register with the program to receive notice of legal proceedings involving their potential child.

Oftentimes, these putative father registries are used by attorneys as part of adoption cases to determine if a child potentially has a biological father who could request paternal rights. If a Spartanburg father receives such notice, he may be able to seek paternity using DNA testing in court and could potentially gain custodial rights if a judge views him as a safe fit for the child.

Experts in Spartanburg, SC Say…

In cases where a Spartanburg mother does not want to involve a child's father and prevents him from establishing paternity, legal assistance will be required. According to Spartanburg family law attorney David Martin, either a mother or father can petition to establish paternity in court using DNA testing. If the court can learn definitive parentage through testing, paternity will be legally established in addition to any child support, custody, or visitation agreements that may be required.
