DNA Test - Upland, California

Upland CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Upland, 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 Upland DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Upland, California - DNA Testing

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Upland, CA

Under California state law, when an Upland father is not married to his child's mother at the time of birth, he will not possess any paternal rights or responsibilities until paternity has been properly established. Paternity establishments are used to legally designate a child's biological father and will be necessary if either parent wishes to seek monthly child support services.

Establishing paternity further supports the well-being of a child, as it provides two avenues to receive parental benefits such as health insurance coverage or inheritance opportunities. Because paternity establishments create a legal bond between the child and father, it's important that DNA testing services are first used to verify a paternity claim if there is any sort of reasonable doubt.

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Upland, CA

There are two ways Upland parents can establish paternity in the state of California. The easiest method would be to sign and submit a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity at the hospital following the child's birth. As mentioned, Upland parents should only move forward with establishing paternity if they are completely confident in the presumed paternity or if DNA testing has been used.

If a parent refuses to establish paternity using this method on the belief of mistaken paternity, then the second method of establishing paternity via court order must be used. Through San Bernardino County Court, the paternity establishment process will require the presumed father to undergo DNA testing to confirm his genetic connection. If this is successful, then paternity can be established, as well as child support, visitation, or custody agreements.

Disestablish Paternity in Upland, CA

California paternity law does hold certain restrictions for those looking to disestablish paternity in cases where a parent learns of mistaken paternity but has already signed and completed a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity. If the discovery is made within 60 days of the acknowledgment's filing, then a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage Rescission form can be submitted to the San Bernardino Courts to remove the agreement. Following the 60-mark, the Upland parent will need to seek legal assistance to present their claim in court.
