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 Troy DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing paternity in Troy, Michigan

Married parents in Troy do not need to take additional steps to establish paternity if they have a child together, as the legal father is automatically presumed to be the husband. Unmarried Troy parents, however, can establish paternity voluntarily or involuntarily. If they agree on the biological father’s identity and have no doubts, they can establish paternity by signing the Affidavit of Parentage form. An Affidavit of Parentage can be filled out at the hospital after the child is born, at the local county Registrar’s Office, or at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services office.

Another option is establishing paternity by court order. The judge often asks the alleged father and the child to undergo paternity testing to prove they are related. The DNA test is a simple and quick method of proving paternity, usually consisting of a painless cheek swab. The samples are taken to the laboratory, and the judge receives the paternity test results.

DNA test helps reunite Michigan siblings

One day, Child Protective Services took four of Magdalena’s children away from her. She got to keep two of her kids, but the rest were split up and eventually adopted. She spent her whole life looking for them but died in 2015. However, after 40 years, five out of six of Magdalena’s children found each other and met for the first time—all because they had taken DNA tests! It all began when two of them used DNA tests to find each other, and then they started searching for the rest via social media.

The siblings said the meeting was bittersweet because they could not meet their mother, but at least they had plenty of stories to share with each other. Little to their knowledge, all of the siblings lived in Michigan, in the same city, maybe even passing each other without realizing it!

The kids staying with Magdalena said they did not understand why their siblings were taken away, as they never felt mistreated or neglected. Since the siblings met, they became inseparable, and their only goal now is to find the last missing member of their family.
