DNA Test - Vacaville, California

Vacaville CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Vacaville, 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.

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

Vacaville Man Publishes Memoir After Finding Family

When Ted Haskins was just two weeks old, his mother gave him up for adoption, handing him through a car window to a couple in the middle of the night. Haskins, who grew up in the Bay Area and now lives in Vacaville, was raised as an only child but always wanted siblings. His biological sister, Jeanette Meade, learned from another child that she had a half-brother when she was 14. She then spent almost five decades searching for him. The two were eventually united and DNA tests confirmed their relationship. Since then, they have been inseparable. They've also worked together to publish a memoir, titled "Twice Delivered," which takes readers through their lives and their hunt for each other.

Establishing Paternity in Vacaville

It's important for unmarried parents in the state of California to understand that putting a father's name on a child's birth certificate does not establish legal paternity. However, it's easy and free to establish paternity, thanks to the state's Parentage Opportunity Program (POP), which is a free, voluntary program for eligible parents.

According to the Solano County Department of Vital Statistics, parents in Vacaville (and the rest of the state) can establish paternity by signing and filing a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP). To be eligible, parents must agree that there is only one possible genetic father. This service is also available to couples who have had a child through egg or sperm donation except when any donation came from their spouse.

Tips for Handling Paternity Disputes in Vacaville

Establishing a child's paternity (now called "parentage") is important — but what happens when both parents don't agree about the identity of a child's biological father? According to California Paternity Lawyers Pakpour Banks, which serves Vacaville and the surrounding area, interest parties can, in this case, file a petition with the courts to establish legal parentage. When this happens, it's likely that the courts will order a DNA test. If genetic testing shows a strong probability of a parental relationship, the court will issue an order establishing parentage.
