DNA Test - Willoughby Hills, Ohio

Willoughby Hills OH DNA Testing Locations

Types of DNA Tests at our Willoughby Hills, Ohio 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 Willoughby Hills DNA testing technicians are trained to follow these guidelines so that the results will be legally admissible.

Experts Say...

Attorneys from RaslanPla and Company, LLC, serving Willoughby Hills and Lake County, explain children's rights. "A child has the right to enjoy the emotional and financial support of both parents," the law firm said. "In cases where parents are not married, the only way to ensure the parents are equally involved in the child's life and upbringing is to establish paternity. When paternity is not established, the father could lose many rights including having a say in where the child is moved or whether the child may be adopted by a spouse of the mother."

Establishing Paternity in Willoughby Hills, OH

Paternity means fatherhood. When a child is born to married parents in Willoughby Hills, the husband is presumed the child's legal father. However, when a child is born to unmarried parents, they must establish paternity for the biological father to become the legal father. Establishing paternity grants the child the same rights as a child born to married parents. Paternity also allows the child access to financial support and medical coverage from both parents and allows the father to share parental responsibilities. The easiest way to establish paternity in Willoughby Hills is by signing a Paternity Affidavit, a legal form stating the child's father. Parents should not sign the affidavit if there's any doubt about the child's biological father. If they cannot agree to sign the form, they can establish paternity in court. Parents can obtain a court order of paternity at Lake County's juvenile court, located at 53 East Erie Street in Painesville.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Willoughby Hills, OH

Parents can request DNA testing, or a judge can require a DNA test to determine paternity. DNA specimens are taken by swabbing the cheeks of the alleged father and the child. DNA tests from certified labs are more than 99% accurate and can be used in court to establish paternity.
