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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.
Legal DNA Tests vs. “Peace of Mind” At-Home Tests
A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Sunnyvale DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Sunnyvale, CA
In Sunnyvale, CA, if a child is born to unmarried parents, the parents will need to establish paternity. This can be done in three ways.
1. Sign a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage or Paternity.
Signing this legal document is voluntary and must be signed by both parents. It may be signed at the hospital when the baby is born. This allows for both parents to be on the birth certificate and the mother will not have to go to court to determine her child’s legal father. A Declaration of Parentage may be signed at a later time as well, but it must be signed at an approved public agency or witnessed by a notary.
By signing this document, both parents give up rights to:
2. Ask your local child support agency to establish paternity.
The Child Support Agency is part of the Department of Child Support Services, and they will ask for a child support order. If the alleged father denies being the child’s father, DNA testing for paternity can be ordered.

You can fill out, serve, and file several court forms yourself if you decide to go to court, and you may need a trial before a judge. Either parent can open a case, and it also allows for both parents to ask for orders regarding custody, visitation, and child support.
