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.

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.

Paternity Programs in Succasunna, NJ

The establishment of paternity is necessary to legally declare the child's biological father, grant him his rights, and place his name on the birth certificate. Luckily, state programs make establishing paternity in Succasunna simple. Through the New Jersey Paternity Opportunity Program, unmarried Succasunna parents can establish paternity free of charge after the birth of their child.

After a child is born, a hospital or birthing facility staff member will present a Voluntary Certificate of Parentage for completion. If there is full confidence in the paternity of the child, then the two Succasunna parents should complete this form as soon as possible. However, if either parent is not 100% certain of a child's paternity, DNA genetic testing should first be used to avoid complications.

Legal Assistance Establishing Paternity in Succasunna, NJ

When a Succasunna man denies paternity of a child, they have the right to refuse the voluntary signing of a Certificate of Parentage. However, without the legal establishment of paternity, the biological father will not hold parental rights and the custodial parent will not be able to seek child support. To eliminate these barriers, a parent must establish paternity through Morris County Family Court.

After filing a petition to establish paternity in Morris County Family Court, court-ordered DNA testing will likely be requested to accurately determine the biological father first. If paternity testing confirms the father, the judge can then move forward with establishing paternity as well as laying out any necessary child support obligations and custody agreements for the Succasunna parents.

Experts in Succasunna, NJ Say…

In cases where a married woman has a child with a man who is not her husband, New Jersey paternity law still automatically assumes the husband to be the legal father. To remove any unfair child support obligations in court, a judge will likely request proof of DNA testing. Note, Succasunna family law attorney Allison Williams states that while you can purchase at-home genetic tests, testing will need to be completed by a qualified laboratory to be properly admissible in court.
