DNA Test - Tamarac, Florida

Tamarac FL DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Tamarac, 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 Tamarac, FL

Under Florida law, when the mother is married at the time of her child's birth, the husband is considered the child's father. In this situation, there are no additional steps to establish paternity. However, when parents are unwed, paternity must be established. Parents can do so voluntarily or involuntarily. If the alleged father and the mother agree on paternity, they can sign the Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity (VAP). By doing so, they acknowledge that the alleged father is the child's legal father. If either party changes their mind, they have sixty days from signing to revoke it. After that, they must go to court to challenge paternity.

Parents who disagree or are unsure about paternity should not sign the VAP. Often, people in this situated opt for a DNA test or they go to court. The judge will likely order the alleged father and child to take a paternity test to prove their relationship. If paternity is established, the judge can also determine custody, visitation, and child support if necessary.

Health Street offers DNA testing services to anyone who wants to establish paternity or confirm a biological relationship. For peace of mind and all the answers you need, visit one of our clinics in Tamarac, Florida.

Tamarac, Florida: Benefits of establishing paternity
