DNA Test – Tyler, Texas

Tyler TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Tyler, Texas 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:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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 Tyler DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Establishing Paternity in Tyler, TX

Under Texas law, when a child is born to a married couple, paternity is automatically established since it is presumed the husband is the biological father. For unmarried Tyler, TX couples, the state requires both parties to legally establish paternity to provide the biological father with his paternal rights.

The easiest way to establish paternity in Tyler is to file an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). This document will be presented at the hospital following the child’s birth but can also be completed through a AOP-certified entity at a later date. Once the acknowledgment has been properly filed with the state, the father will then have legal parental rights over his child and can request custodial or institutional agreements in Smith County court if necessary.

Navigating Difficult Paternity Situations in Tyler, TX

In the moments following childbirth, two parents may be quick to assume the child’s rightful father and swiftly file an Acknowledgment of Paternity. Unfortunately, in some cases, a presumed father may later learn that he is not the biological father and now holds legal paternal rights and responsibilities over a child who is not his.

For Tyler men who find themselves in a similar situation, the state of Texas allows you to file a Rescission of Acknowledgement Paternity form within 60 days after the original filing of the Acknowledgement of Paternity to remove this legal bind. If the 60-day mark passes, the father will need to challenge the Acknowledgment in Smith County Court to have it rescinded. In most cases, a judge will request DNA testing of the previously presumed father to confirm his claim is accurate and, if so, will release him of any child support obligations.

Seeking Child Support Services in Tyler, TX

A Tyler, TX parent may need to request child support services for their child. To receive monthly payments from the other parent, paternity must be established over the child. If you are experiencing issues having the other parent agree to or allow the establishment of paternity, it’s essential you file a paternity petition through Smith County Family Court.

This will allow a judge to issue a summons for the parent, issue DNA testing if necessary, and mandate that paternity is established. Once paternity is established, the State of Texas provides an online platform to request child support services.
