DNA Test - West Coxsackie, New York

West Coxsackie NY DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our West Coxsackie, New York 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

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

West Coxsackie, NY - DNA Testing

Local DNA Stories

A woman from Greene County who was abandoned on a doorstep as a baby found her family 67 years later by using DNA testing. After being abandoned, the woman was adopted and given the name Christine.

Christine grew up, got married, and had a family of her own. But she never stopped wondering who her biological family was and if she had any siblings.

Christine used DNA testing and was matched to a woman related to her biological mother. She learned her mother's name, that she grew up in the Capital Region, and that her mother died about 22 years prior.

She learned she has five half-siblings, two of which are deceased. Christine said that she is happy to have learned about her family, but also sad that she never got to know her sisters who passed on. She also got to meet her brother-in-law and long-lost nieces. Christine said, "Knowing where I came from, and some of the circumstances, ya know. A year ago I didn't know this. I'm extremely happy."

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in West Coxsackie, NY

In West Coxsackie, NY, if unmarried parents have a child, they need to establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. If the parents will not both agree to establish paternity voluntarily, they will go to court.

A paternity case is brought to family court with an Order of Filiation, a court order that names the man as the father, giving him the right to custody or visitation of the child and the obligation to pay child support.

When an Order of Filiation is signed voluntarily, the parents are both agreeing the man is the father and that DNA testing is not needed. However, if either parent disagrees about who the father is, the court will order DNA testing to prove paternity. DNA samples are taken from the mother, alleged father, and child.
