DNA Test - Wichita Falls, Texas

Wichita Falls TX DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Wichita Falls, Texas 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.

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

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Wichita Falls, TX

When a child is born to unmarried Wichita Falls parents, only the mother will possess legal parental rights at birth. Without the presence of a legal marriage, Texas family law cannot automatically declare the child's biological father. By establishing legal paternity in the state of Texas, the father will gain parental rights and be able to seek custody or child support services if necessary.

In addition to providing the father with his parental rights, a Wichita Falls child can also significantly benefit from the legal establishment of paternity. By legally declaring the child's biological father, the child can receive benefits from both parental parties including but not limited to inheritance, health insurance, monthly support, and social security when available.

How to Establish Paternity in Wichita Falls, TX

Under Texas paternity law, two Wichita Falls parents can establish paternity through the use of an Acknowledgment of Paternity (AOP). This form is a legally binding document used by unmarried parents to declare a child's biological father and establish his legal parental rights. While both parents are given the opportunity to complete an AOP following the birth of their child, this form can also be completed at a later date through an AOP-certified entity.

Bear in mind, this form is completely voluntary and if either parent refuses to sign it, the opposite parent will need to file a petition to establish paternity through a Wichita County Family Court. This petition will allow a judge to issue a summons to the opposing parent and request they complete the necessary steps to establish paternity. These steps typically include a DNA paternity test to confirm the biological father.

Assistance Determining Paternity in Wichita Falls, TX

When two Wichita Falls parents need to establish paternity, it's extremely important to first confirm the biological father before moving forward with the establishment filing. If either parent holds doubt over the child's paternity, they must seek DNA testing services to accurately determine if the presumed father is indeed the biological father. Failing to properly determine paternity could cause significant legal complications later on if a parent learns that the presumed father is not the biological father and looks to revoke the establishment and/or child support obligations.
