DNA Test – Whittier, California

Whittier CA DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Whittier, 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:

account_box
Grandparent DNA Test (if the father is not available for testing)
account_box
Sibling DNA Test (possible brothers, sisters, or half-siblings)
account_box
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 Whittier DNA testing technicians are trained to follow guidelines that ensure that the results can be used for legal purposes.

Experts in Whittier Say…

Whittier, California’s Law Office of Steven Ibarra explained that DNA testing to determine paternity has become more advanced over the years, and determining paternity has become more standardized.

“In most cases, paternity determination is wanted in cases involving child support, visitation rights, inheritance, and other legal issues,” the law office pointed out. Other reasons for determining paternity include:

child_friendly
confirming parentage before paying child support
child_friendly
for inheritance purposes
child_friendly
to obtain financial support from both parents
child_friendly
to receive medical records from both sides of the family
child_friendly
to receive any health benefits, life insurance, Veteran’s benefits, or other benefits the child may qualify for

RM Law Group of Whittier, CA also speaks of the importance of establishing paternity by stating, “When a parent has completed a Declaration for Paternity form, and the form has been successfully processed, the State of California will grant the parent vital legal rights to both the child and the father. Without the form, the child may be unable to receive an inheritance from the father or other death-related benefits. Further, the child may also be unable to claim life insurance from the father, should he pass away. One of the most difficult matters is that the child may be given up for adoption by the mother without proper notification to the father.”

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Whittier, CA

In Whittier, CA, establishing paternity can be done voluntarily if both parents agree to sign a Declaration of Parentage or Paternity form. The form should not be signed if there’s any question from either parent about who the father is. If one parent does not agree to sign the voluntary form, paternity can also be established through the local child support agency or by going to court. In some cases, DNA testing may be necessary to prove paternity.
