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.

Establishing paternity in Wyoming, MI

Unmarried parents from Wyoming, Michigan, can establish paternity in two ways. The most common and simplest way to establish paternity is by signing an Affidavit of Parentage voluntarily. If parents have no reason to doubt who the birth father is, they can sign the Affidavit form. This can happen in four different locations:

At the hospital right after the baby is born

At the local Registrar's Office

If parents are unsure or disagree about who the biological father is, the best course of action is sometimes to establish paternity through the court. Typically, the judge will order a DNA test for both the child and the alleged father to establish paternity. From there, the judge may determine custody, visitation hours, and child support if necessary.

Wyoming, Michigan: Benefits of establishing paternity

Establishing paternity is more than adding the father's name to the child's birth certificate. Doing so is especially important for unmarried fathers. Once parents determine paternity, the father can ask for custody and visitation hours, which can allow him to build a relationship with his child. When parents sign the Affidavit of Parentage, it grants custody to the mother unless agreed otherwise or decided by the court in favor of the father.

Parents are not the only ones gaining benefits from establishing paternity. The child will be entitled to support from both parents; they may also receive the father's medical and life insurance benefits, Social Security, and veteran's benefits if applicable. Once paternity is established, the child can also inherit from the father and receive access to family medical history. For those looking to establish paternity, Health Street offers reliable and accurate DNA paternity testing services that provide peace of mind and can be used for legal purposes.
