DNA Test - Stockton, California

Stockton CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Stockton, California 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Stockton DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Stockton, California - DNA Testing

Why Should I Establish Paternity in Stockton, CA?

When a Stockton child is born to two married parents, California state law automatically provides the husband with paternal rights, as it's assumed the husband is the child's biological father. However, when two parents are not married at the time of their child's birth, the father will possess no legal rights over his child until paternity is properly established in the state of California.

Completion of the paternity process will allow a father to receive his rights, including the request for custody, visitation, and child support. To protect the well-being of the child, it's important for the parents to have full confidence in the child's paternity. If there is any sort of doubt over who the biological father is, DNA paternity testing must be used to accurately determine the true father.

How to Establish Paternity in Stockton, CA

There are two methods for unmarried Stockton parents who need to legally establish paternity in the state of California. The simplest method would be to complete a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage form following the birth of the child. This legally-binding document is typically presented by hospital staff at the child's birth and is used to declare the identity of the child's biological father.

The second method to establish paternity in Stockton would be by court order. This method is often used when a parent does not agree to voluntarily establish paternity. Filing a paternity petition with a San Joaquin Family Court allows a judge to request that the opposing parent appears in court to complete the establishment process. A judge will likely request DNA paternity testing of the presumed father to accurately determine paternity. From here, paternity can then be established.

Experts in Stockton, CA Say…

After successfully establishing paternity, two Stockton parents may further need the help of the courts to establish a child custody agreement. According to Stockton family law attorney John McKinley, California law gives judges significant discretion with which to decide on the ideal custody arrangement of a child.

To ensure the best interest of a child, the judge will conduct an analysis of various factors, including but not limited to the child's relationship with both parents, the financial stability of the parents, and whether or not the parents have a history of substance abuse.
