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

Establishing Paternity in Vallejo, CA
According to Vallejo law office Russo & Prince, parents in California are defined as either “natural” or “presumed.” A natural parent is a parent who has given birth to a child or has proof of having adopted a child. A presumed parent is someone who could potentially be a child’s parent but has not yet been legally named as such.
A DNA test is often used to establish paternity. However, it’s not the only factor the courts consider. In some cases, a non-biological parent can be named a child’s legal parent. This often happens when a person raises as a child and “holds the child out” to be their own.
Solano County’s Parentage Opportunity Program
In Solano County, and the rest of California, adding a person’s name to a child’s birth certificate does not establish legal paternity. To assist parents with the legal process, the county has established a Parentage Opportunity Program (POP), which helps parents file a Voluntary Declaration of Parentage (VDOP) for free.
This form can be used for two unmarried parents when they agree that the man is the only possible genetic father or for two people who are either married or unmarried and conceived their child through assisted reproduction using sperm and/or egg donation, as long as the spouse is not the donor.
If these circumstances do not apply or the parents do not agree about a child’s paternity, then parents will need to contact their local child support agency or file a court petition.

According to California Courts, the judicial branch of California, there are many reasons why it’s important to establish a child’s paternity.

This includes:
