DNA Test - Wichita, Kansas

Wichita KS DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Wichita, Kansas clinics:

Paternity Testing can conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child.

Relationship Testing for other close family relationships can be performed at our testing centers. Our DNA testing services can confirm or deny biological relationships between grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, half-siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews:

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 alleged father and child or children. 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 ordering one of our testing kits online and shipping the specimens back to us.

Legal DNA Tests vs. "Peace of Mind" At-Home Tests

A Legal Paternity Test is a court admissible lab testing service performed at an AABB accredited laboratory. 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. A legal paternity DNA test will hold up in court for such matters as child support or to change the name on a birth certificate. This test must be performed using strict chain of custody procedures. Our Wichita DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Wichita, Kansas - DNA Testing

Experts Say...

Stange Law Firm, serving Wichita, KS, says "Many men who have children want to care for their children. While they don't necessarily need to have legal documentation to do this, some decide that they want the legal acknowledgment of paternity." The law firm explains the importance of establishing paternity and that it benefits the child, mother, and father. "Once a man is confirmed to be a child's father, his name is recorded as the biological father," the firm explained, "The child becomes eligible for financial support from their mother and father." This can include government benefits that a son or daughter is eligible to receive through the father. He may then be asked to pay child support, and he may exercise his legal right to request visitation or custody of the children.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Wichita, KS

In Wichita, KS, a father and mother that have a child must establish paternity for the child to have a legal father. Paternity can be established by signing a Voluntary Acknowledgment of Paternity form. This form should only be signed if the mother and father are sure that he is the child's biological father. If there are any doubts, DNA testing should be requested to prove paternity. If both parents will not voluntarily sign the Acknowledgment of Paternity form, they can establish paternity through the court system, and the court may order DNA testing.

Family Law in Wichita, Kansas and Sedgwick County

The 18th Judicial District Court's family law clerks handle all paternity and visitation cases. They are located in the Sedgwick County Courthouse at 525 N. Main Street in Wichita.

At-Home DNA Tests vs. Certified Lab DNA Tests

Wichita, Kansas residents who find they need a DNA test for a paternity case should be aware that "at-home" DNA testing will not hold up in court as well as DNA testing administered by a certified lab. To expedite paternity, child support and child visitation court cases, we advise Wichita residents to use only certified DNA testing.
