DNA Test - Yuma, Arizona

Yuma AZ DNA Testing Locations

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

Yuma, Arizona - DNA Testing

Importance of Establishing Paternity in Yuma, AZ

When a child is born to a married Yuma couple, the state of Arizona automatically grants parental rights to the husband, as it is assumed he is the biological father of the child. However, when two parents are not married at the time of birth, the completion of a paternity establishment will be required in order for the father to receive parental rights over the newborn.

By properly establishing paternity in Yuma County, the child can now qualify for government programs, health insurance, life insurance, and even survivor benefits from both of his or her parents. Because of these potential benefits, it's important to first accurately determine paternity using DNA testing before moving forward to avoid any delays or complications.

Methods of Establishing Paternity in Yuma, AZ

For unmarried parents located in Yuma, there are two methods of establishing paternity. The easiest method of establishing paternity is by completing an Acknowledgment of Paternity at the hospital following the birth of a child. Prior to the paternity establishment, if there is any sort of reasonable doubt in a child's paternity, be sure to first seek DNA testing services before moving forward.

An Acknowledgment of Paternity is completely voluntary, and in the event a parent refuses to do so, the second method of establishing paternity will need to be used, via court order. Filing a petition to establish paternity through Yuma County Court creates the ability for the courts to mandate that both parental parties complete the necessary steps to establish paternity, including the use of DNA testing.

Disestablishing Paternity in Yuma, AZ

A Yuma couple may be quick to establish paternity without the use of DNA testing and later learn that the presumed father is actually not the child's biological father. This situation can be very frustrating, as the previously presumed father will still be held accountable for any child support obligations unless a petition to disestablish paternity is filed.

Bear in mind that Arizona law provides 60 days following the filing of a paternity establishment to have it rescinded without the need for court action. Following this 60-day mark, Rule 60(c) of the Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure says that court action must be made within six months of the acknowledgment date and the individual must be able to claim fraud, duress, or material mistake.
