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:

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

Tyler, Texas - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Tyler, TX

It is essential for parents who are unwed and have a child is to establish paternity. Doing so can benefit the child, the mother, and the father. By establishing paternity, both parents can gain the same rights and responsibilities. For example, they can share custody, decide about visitation hours, and support the child financially.

In Tyler, parents have two options to establish paternity. They can sign an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP) or go to court. Parents should only sign the AOP if they are both sure and have zero doubts about paternity. They can sign this document at the hospital after the mother gives birth, and the hospital staff can help them with the whole process. When signing the AOP, make sure you work with an AOP-certified entity.

People sometimes go to court to establish paternity, especially when they have disagreements or are unsure about who the biological father is. The judge can easily establish paternity by ordering a simple and quick DNA test for both the child and the alleged father. When the test DNA results come back from the laboratory, the judge can consider the test results while establishing paternity.

Tyler, Texas: Benefits of establishing paternity

Children can benefit in multiple ways if their unwed parents establish paternity. For example, a child can:

Have a better sense of identity
Establish a bond with both parents
Have access to the medical history of both sides of the family
Get benefits such as medical insurance, life insurance, veteran's benefits, or inheritance
Receive financial support from both parents

Establishing paternity can make it easier for parents to share critical responsibilities and rights towards their kids. Both parties can participate in crucial decisions about education, religious upbringing, and health decisions. Recent studies have also shown that children with a healthy relationship with both parents are less likely to suffer from physical and emotional health issues, use drugs, or drop out of school.
