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:

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.

Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Wilson, NC

Establishing paternity is the process of giving a child a legal father. In Wilson, NC, a child born to unmarried parents does not have a legal father until paternity is established. Paternity may be established by signing an Affidavit of Parentage or by a court proceeding. Many paternity cases are settled before going to court by using DNA testing. If the case goes to trial, the judge may order DNA testing, and the mother, alleged father, and child must submit DNA samples. In Wilson, NC, if the DNA test shows at least a 97 percent probability that a man is the child's father, paternity will be established through the court.

Experts Say...

Dummit Fradin, North Carolina Attorneys at Law, says, "Many times we've encountered fathers that are worried they don't have rights to their child if they're not on the birth certificate. This is not true. Even if you're not on the birth certificate, you still have just as much right to your child as the mother." If paternity is questioned at any point, the law firm recommends DNA testing. According to the law firm, once a father receives child custody orders, his name can be added to the birth certificate. "In North Carolina, there is no presumption as to which parent is more fit. Both parents are deemed to be fit and capable of caring for their children. Child custody is determined based on the best interests of the children."
