DNA Test - Valdosta, Georgia

Valdosta GA DNA Testing Locations

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

Valdosta, Georgia - DNA Testing

Establishing paternity in Valdosta, GA

Establishing paternity is an important step for unwed parents in Valdosta, Georgia. For those in agreement, the process can be easy, involving signing a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment form. This form is accessible at many locations, including the birthing hospital, the local Vital Records Office, or the State Office of Vital Records in Atlanta.

Another option for establishing paternity is going to court and letting the judge decide. That is considered as the involuntary establishment of paternity because parents usually choose this option if either of them disagrees with paternity or have doubts about who is the birth father. Because the court wants to ensure the legal father is also the biological father, the judge usually asks the alleged father and the child to undergo a genetic test. These tests are usually done as cheek swabs, which are non-invasive and quick.

Once the results return from special laboratories testing them, and if they confirm the genetic relationship between the alleged father and the child, the judge can establish paternity. Establishing paternity does not mean establishing custody, child support, or visitation hours; these need to be determined separately after the paternity is established.

Valdosta, Georgia: Reasons to establish paternity

Establishing paternity means parents can share the rights and responsibilities towards their children. This includes making collective decisions for the child's wellbeing, seeking custody or visitation hours, and contributing to financial support.

For the child, knowing their paternity can improve their sense of identity, enable relationships with both parents, and include both parent's names on the birth certificate. It can also open doors to legal benefits, such as potential inheritance rights and access to some federal benefits.

Choosing DNA testing in Valdosta is crucial for families seeking reliable answers for personal peace of mind or legal matters. These services stand out because they promise almost perfect accuracy, ensuring families can trust the results.
