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.

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.

White Bear Lake, MN - DNA Testing

Establishing Father's Rights in White Bear Lake, MN

When two White Bear Lake parents are not married at the time of their child's birth, only the mother will hold legal parental rights and responsibilities. Without legal proof of marriage, Minnesota paternity law cannot automatically assume a child's legal father and the two parents will need to take the necessary steps to declare the biological father and grant him his paternal rights.

Through the state of Minnesota, parents can complete a Voluntary Recognition of Parentage directly at the hospital or birthing facility following a child's birth to legally declare the child's father. At the time of completion, both parents must agree upon the given paternity claim to sign and submit the form to the Minnesota Office of Vital Records for paternity for it to be legally declared.

Why DNA Paternity Testing is Important in White Bear Lake, MN

During the paternity establishment process, White Bear Lake parents can be quick to submit the form without verifying the child's biological father through DNA testing. While DNA testing is not always required, it's important to understand that once a man is legally declared a child's father, he will be held responsible for child support obligations.

If a parent learns at a later date that the original paternity of a child was incorrect, the man who was declared the legal father will still be required to comply with any child support payments until the establishment is dismissed in court. To prevent legal complications and headaches, it's important for White Bear Lake parents to first use DNA testing if more than one man could be the child's biological father.

Paternity Laws and Regulations in White Bear Lake, MN

When mistaken paternity is learned and a paternity acknowledgment must be rescinded, Minnesota law allows individuals to file an action to vacate this agreement under certain circumstances. Under Minnesota Statute 257.75, an action to vacate a recognition of paternity may be brought by a parent within one year of executing the paternity recognition.

To terminate the agreement and any child support obligations, the individual will also need to demonstrate proof of genetic tests indicating that the man who originally completed the recognition is not the biological father.
