An Alternative Specimen DNA Test is done by registering online and shipping the specimens to us.

DNA Testing in The City of Yucaipa, CA
Wallin & Klarich, family law attorneys that serve Yucaipa, explain that DNA testing determines the biological characteristics of an individual and is used to determine paternity. “Children inherit DNA from both their mother and father,” they explain, “Thus when DNA is tested, professionals compare the DNA between the mother, father, and child. If the child has DNA comparable to both the mother and father, both are considered the legal parents of the child.”
The law firm describes circumstances when an alleged father will be a presumed parent of a child. To be a presumed father, you must:
Proving Paternity for Child Custody Purposes in Yucaipa, CA
If the mother and father are married when the child is born, the father is presumed the child’s legal father, and paternity will not need to be established. But in Yucaipa, CA, if the parents are not married at the time of the child’s birth, paternity will need to be established, and in some cases, paternity will need to be proven with DNA testing.
Establishing parentage, or paternity may be done voluntarily without help from the court if both parents agree to do so. If an alleged father does not agree that he’s the child’s biological father, the court may order DNA testing to prove paternity. DNA samples will be taken from the mother, father, and child.
Once paternity is established the father will have financial responsibilities to the child and rights, such as visitation or custody rights.
