DNA Test - Sunrise, Florida

Sunrise FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Sunrise, Florida 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.

Establishing paternity in Sunrise, Florida

Unmarried Floridian parents can establish paternity by legal order or by signing a Paternity Acknowledgment form. Most parents with no doubts about paternity sign the form after the child's birth at the hospital. Usually, the hospital staff can help with the process. After the documents are signed and filed, the father can be added to the child's birth certificate.

However, sometimes, there may be reasons why the mother and the alleged father do not want to sign the Paternity Acknowledgement and decide to go to court. Usually, the judge will order a DNA test for the child and the alleged father, so they can determine whether the alleged father is the biological father. The judge will likely establish paternity if the genetic testing returns as a match. However, it is important to note that the judge may also consider other factors while establishing paternity.

Sunrise, Florida: Benefits of establishing paternity

If parents from Sunrise are unsure whether to establish paternity, they should know it can benefit them and the child. Once paternity is legally established, both parents can have rights and responsibilities for the child. The father may be entitled to visitation hours or required to pay child support. He can also participate in important decisions regarding the child's health, education, or religious upbringing.

Additionally, there are multiple benefits the child can gain once paternity is established, some of which can include:

Having both parents on the birth certificate can help with a better sense of identity
Building an emotional bond with both parents
Getting child support from both parents
Social Security
Heath and life insurance
Veterans and disability benefits, if applicable
The right to inherit from both parents
