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

When deciding which type of DNA test is right for you, consider first what you might do with the results.

Surprise, Arizona - DNA Testing

Surprise, AZ: Establishing paternity

In Arizona, when parents are not married, it is essential to establish paternity legally. It must be established before the child support court order can be established. A Hospital Paternity Program works with DCSS and helps parents develop paternity right after the baby is born at the hospital. Parents need to sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity (AOP), and then the birth recorders or nurses help them legally establish their child's paternity.

Another option is establishing paternity by a court hearing. Parents usually pick this option when one party is not cooperative. The judge will likely ask the alleged father and the child to take a DNA test to prove paternity, and if the father is identified through DNA testing, the judge can legally establish it.

Benefits of establishing paternity in Surprise, Arizona

When unwed parents establish paternity in Surprise, Arizona, they give their children multiple benefits. Some of these benefits can include:

search
Government programs and Social Security
search
Health and life insurance
search
Access to the medical history of both parents
search
Building a relationship with both parents
search
Emotional support from both parents
search
A sense of identity
search
Survivor's benefits
search
Possible inheritance

Besides the benefits a child may gain, there are also benefits for parents. Once paternity is established, they can also establish child support, visitation hours, and custody. Establishing paternity means both parents have the same rights and responsibilities towards their child.

Challenging paternity in Surprise, AZ

The ability to challenge an AOP signed by another man is limited in Arizona. However, suppose you are the biological father and have proof (like a legal DNA test that says you are the birth father). In that case, you should act quickly to ensure you establish paternity. Without it, you will not have any rights toward the child. Even in this scenario, establishing paternity may not be easy, so it is best to be advised by family lawyers.
