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.

Springfield, Oregon – DNA Testing
Establishing paternity in Springfield, OR
When parents are unmarried, they must establish paternity; otherwise, they and their child can miss out on multiple benefits. In Springfield, there are two main ways to establish paternity:
- Voluntary Acknowledgment: One of the primary methods is signing the Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity, often done at the hospital after the child’s birth. It’s important for fathers to be sure of their paternity before signing, as this document holds significant weight. It makes the father’s name official on the birth certificate, and he takes on the legal rights and duties towards the child.
- Court: Should there be disagreements or doubts, the court can decide on paternity. In such cases, DNA testing might be a step to confirm the biological connection between the father and the child.
Health Street’s DNA testing services in Springfield, Oregon, can help parents easily establish paternity. Our tests are 99.9% accurate, quick, and non-invasive.
Springfield, Oregon: Benefits of establishing paternity

If the mother were to consider giving up the child for adoption, the father would have to agree.
