DNA Test - Temecula, California

Temecula CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Temecula, California 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.

Legally Admissible DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible DNA testing service. 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. In order for the results of a DNA test to hold up in court, for child support, or to change the name on a birth certificate, the test must be done at a clinic using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Temecula DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Temecula, California - DNA Testing

Establishing Paternity in Temecula, CA

Under California law, in situations where a Temecula child is born to unmarried parents, only the mother will be granted parental rights over the child until paternity is properly established. Using a Declaration of Paternity, two Temecula parents can legally declare the child's biological father at the hospital following the infant's birth or through a Riverside County Child Support Services Office.

Keep in mind that a Declaration of Paternity is a legally binding document and should only be completed if there is zero doubt in a child's paternity. If there are any concerns about the accuracy of a child's paternity, Temecula parents should first seek DNA testing services to properly determine who the child's biological father is to prevent any complications in the future.

Navigating Difficult Paternity Establishments in Temecula, CA

Unfortunately, when a parent refuses to sign a paternity establishment, the opposite parent will be unable to seek child support services, as there will be no legally declared father. Whether the refusal is based on paternity denial or the inability to locate a parent, the opposite parent must file a petition to establish legal paternity through a Riverside County Family Court.

By filing a paternity petition, a Riverside County judge will issue a summons to either the child's mother or presumed father to initiate the establishment process. This will often include the use of DNA testing to accurately identify the father. If the biological father is confirmed, paternity will be established and both Temecula parents can move forward with child support and custody agreements.

Experts in Temecula, CA Say…

Following a paternity establishment, two Temecula parents may find themselves back in court to establish a child custody agreement. According to Family Law Attorney Michelanne Hrubic, most parents who seek joint custody will typically be granted equal legal and physical custody, requiring them to split the responsibility of the child. However, these agreements may not always be 50/50, depending on a variety of factors including child education needs, parent work schedules, and the child's medical needs.
