Statesboro GA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Statesboro, 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

Establishing Paternity in Statesboro, GA

Establishing paternity is the process of giving a child a legal father. Statesboro parents can establish paternity in three ways: by marriage, by signing a paternity acknowledgment, or through a court order. The easiest way to establish paternity in Statesboro is by signing a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement form at the hospital when the child is born or later at the Bullock County Vital Records Office, located at 1 West Altman Street in Statesboro. If parents cannot agree to establish paternity voluntarily, they can go to court, and the judge may order a DNA test to use as evidence. Once paternity is established, the father's name can be added to the birth certificate.

Benefits of Establishing Paternity in Statesboro, GA

Establishing paternity benefits both parents and the child. Having two parents gives a child a sense of identity and allows a child to establish connections with the mother and the father. It also gives the child financial support and access to medical information from the mother and the father's families. Establishing paternity in Statesboro also gives the mother financial and emotional support while raising the child, and the father can seek visitation and custody orders.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Statesboro, GA

A DNA test can be used to determine a child's biological father before establishing paternity. DNA test results are often taken by swabbing the inside of the father's and child's cheek and are sent to a certified laboratory for analysis. A DNA test detects certain genetic markers shared by the child and the father and can determine the likelihood that a man is the child's father. DNA tests are reliable and can exclude a man from being the child's father or determine he's the father with about 99% accuracy. Statesboro parents can use a DNA test before establishing paternity voluntarily or can be used as evidence in a court case.
