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

Establishing Paternity in Williamstown, NJ
When two unmarried Williamstown residents have a child, the father will possess no parental rights over the child until he and the child’s mother establish legal paternity. In the state of New Jersey, the Paternity Opportunity Program provides unmarried Williamstown parents an easy and free way of legally establishing paternity. Through this program, the paternity establishment process is as simple as completing a Certificate of Parentage.
The completion of a Certificate of Parentage is completely voluntary and should only be done if both parents have full confidence in the child’s paternity, or if DNA testing has been completed to confirm the child’s father. The form will first be presented for completion by hospital staff following the child’s birth but can also be completed later through a Gloucester County Vital Statistics or Welfare Office.
Navigating a Difficult Paternity Establishment Process in Williamstown, NJ
For instances when a Williamstown parent refuses to establish paternity due to disbelief in the child’s paternity, they may require court assistance to complete the process. By filing a paternity petition through Gloucester County Family Court, either parent can request that the courts establish paternity for them.
This process will require both parents and child to submit DNA testing to accurately determine the child’s father. If results can prove the paternity claim is correct, then a judge can move forward with the paternity establishment process as well as the establishment of child support obligations if necessary.
Experts in Williamstown, NJ Say…
Following the establishment of paternity, two unmarried parents may need to further establish a custody agreement to provide the child healthy parenting time with both individuals. Typically, two parents should go through the process of mediation to set aside personal disagreements and develop a plan that works best for the child. Unfortunately, this will not always be successful and will sometimes require the assistance of the courts.
According to Williamstown Family Law Attorney Victoria Rand, litigation may be necessary to protect a child’s best interest when dealing with a custody agreement. In court, a judge will assess the current situation and evaluate a variety of factors including the parents’ living and income situations, in addition to criminal history. Using these details, a judge will then construct a custody plan that works in the best interest of the child.
