Paternity Testing In New York

Paternity Testing New York 01

Are you looking for information about paternity testing in New York? Confirming paternity is a very sensitive and controversial issue. Nonetheless, it is crucial for a number of legal and social matters.  While you may think that it is better to take a home paternity test, it is not always a good idea to do so. There is no need to be hesitant when taking a paternity test. A well-accredited lab will only reveal the test results to you. The paternity test is also useful for some immigration applications. You never know when you might need to take a paternity test, so it is good to know everything about it and where to get an accurate paternity test.

What is a Paternity Test?

The paternity test is a type of DNA test. DNA paternity test confirms the relation of a child with their father. It is used to find out whether the alleged man is the father of the child or not. The paternity test is of great importance in legal matters and resolving family issues. Paternity test matches the DNA profile of the alleged father and the child to confirm their relationship. The doctor or the lab needs only the blood sample of the child and the alleged father to run the test.

When do you require a Paternity Test?

There are several instances where a child, a person, or both need to get a paternity test. A paternity test can reveal shocking results that can disrupt families and relationships. However, in many cases, a paternity test can clear up misconceptions and misunderstandings.

 A paternity test for legal and personal issues

There can be cases where the paternity of the child is uncertain due to pregnancy before marriage, extramarital affair, second marriage, or unfortunate situations, such as rape.

If the parents of the child are not married, they would definitely need a paternity test to determine matters regarding the custody and rights of the child. The relationship of such a couple also needs documentation that requires a paternity test as proof.

 A paternity test for benefits

Other than legal matters and disputes, authorities giving out benefits and security also need proof of paternity.  Social security services can ask for a paternity test to resolve a family dispute that is affecting the child. Health insurance companies may ask for a paternity test if they have a suspicion or a doubt.

A paternity test for immigration

The DNA test is the only method that can prove relations for immigration purposes when the birth certificate and other documents are missing. A paternity test for immigration is used to prove a close family relationship when either the important documents are missing or if the immigration authorities have some kind of suspicion.

Paternity Testing New York City

AB DNA Testing services are accredited for all types of DNA tests for immigration. If you want to ensure that you do not get false results and that your immigration application goes easily, then get DNA test services from us.

Paternity test in cases of adoption

It is very natural for anyone to know their correct parentage.  Adults who are conceived by the donor, are adopted or do not know about both the parents or father because of any reason they can get DNA paternity test very easily.

The paternity test for an unborn child

It is possible to know the paternity of an unborn child. There are two methods for that

 Invasive prenatal paternity testing

Through chronic villus sampling, it is possible to determine the paternity of the child while it is inside the womb. With this method, the doctor retrieves amniotic fluid from the pregnant women’s abdominal wall by inserting a needle.  This test is highly accurate as the test sample comes directly from the fetus. However, there is a chance of miscarriage through invasive prenatal pregnancy.

Non-invasive prenatal paternity testing

This method is very advanced, but the accuracy level is very high. This type of test uses the mother’s blood while she is pregnant. The mother’s blood carries some of the DNA from the fetus which is the ccfDNA. This method is very safe and has no risk of miscarriage.

If you are looking for the best DNA Paternity test services in NYC, contact us at 718-701-0292. AB DNA Testing has all the credentials of DNA testing for legal matters, and immigration process. We are one of the very few DNA testing centers whose test results are easily acceptable by the court, immigration officers, and other agencies. We give accurate results very quickly so that you do not have to worry.

Who’s the Father? DNA Testing

Do you need a DNA test to see who’s the father of your child?There had been other biological identification tests like Blood typing, HLA test, and serological testing in the past to identify the alleged person as a father of the child. These tests still have good chances of confirming paternity, but they can be less accurate, time taking, and less conclusive than the DNA test.

DNA tests have been of the prime importance of confirming the child’s father when the paternity is in doubt. Parental DNA test has helped resolved issues regarding the rights and custody of children in sensitive cases, especially divorce. Parental DNA testing can confirm paternity for both children and adults.

How Does Parental DNA Testing Work?

Collection of DNA Sample

For a paternity test first, you need to collect the buccal sample of the person. You will need to rub the inside of the cheek with a cotton swab to get as many buccal cells. After that, you will send it to the lab for testing. You will also need to send the sample of the alleged father to match with the child or person.

DNA Profile

Parental DNA test uses the DNA profiles of individuals to check the paternity. Your DNA is the combination of both your mother and father’s DNA. You have to make a comparison between DNA profiles of the person and alleged father to identify the alleged person’s fatherhood.

In case of testing paternity of a male, the matching of the Y chromosome is also useful as the Y chromosome transfers directly from father to son.

Test Results

The analysis and comparison of DNA profiles take place in a way to find out the probability percentage. If the probability is 0%, the test denies the paternity of the alleged person. If the probability is 99.9% or greater, the parental DNA test confirms the paternity.

Techniques for DNA Test

The techniques currently in use for parental DNA testing are RFLP( Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism) and PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction). RFLP involves cutting of DNA with a special type of enzymes, namely restriction enzymes. The fragments of DNA separate according to their length on an agarose gel. Patterns of DNA fragments differs for every individual.

The use of PCR is prevalent for parental DNA test. In simple words, PCR generates millions of copies of DNA from a minute amount of sample. The primers with fluorescent tags attach to the extracted and denatured DNA before the amplification( production of million copies). The fluorescent tags make the DNA markers luminescent on the agarose gel.

DNA Test for Unborn Child

A paternity DNA test for the unborn child is also possible. The DNA test for the unborn child can be either invasive or non-invasive. Invasive parental DNA test involves the collection and examination of the chorionic villus sample from a pregnant woman. The test yields highly accurate results as the sample come directly from the fetus.

The noninvasive test is simple as it requires only the collection and examination of the blood of a pregnant woman. There is a little amount of fetal DNA present in the mother’s blood after seven weeks of the baby’s growth. However, the test results are slightly less accurate than the invasive gestation test.

Deceased Paternity DNA Testing

What is deceased paternity testing?

deceased-paternity-dna-testing-nyc-01Deceased paternity testing is the testing of DNA from a deceased person in order to confirm the paternity of that alleged father to a child, either young or grown. Deceased paternity tests are actually quite common, as many people desire to establish legal paternity even after an alleged father has passed away. These tests are most often performed to establish a child as a legal heir to any assets of the alleged father, but we can perform deceased paternity tests for other reasons as well.

Traditional Paternity Testing

When we perform a traditional paternity test, we usually collect buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. We take samples from both the child and the alleged father to be tested.

paternity-testing-lab-queens-ny-03

We then use these DNA samples to compare their genomes side-by-side. A person’s genome is all of their DNA put together and is unique from anyone else’s genome. However, when people are related, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not related. When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar the genomes are. This comparison is called DNA profiling or Genetic Fingerprinting, and is the same process used in criminal investigations to see if someone’s fingerprint or hair matches the genome of the suspect.

Using buccal cells to perform a paternity test is traditionally how we do things in our lab. However, if the alleged father is deceased, performing a paternity test becomes more complicated.

Deceased Paternity Testing

When the alleged father is deceased, we look to non-standard methods of paternity DNA testing. In the absence of living buccal cells, you can bring in other samples of DNA from a deceased person such as blood, hair, or nail clippings, if possible. This is the preferred method for deceased paternity testing.

However, we recognize that gathering these DNA samples from a deceased person will not always be possible. If you are not able to provide any such DNA samples from the deceased person, the next best option is to test the DNA of a close relative to the alleged father. The closer the relative to the alleged father, the more accurate the test results will be.

An example of a close DNA relative of the alleged father is the alleged father’s biological parents. In this case, we prefer to test both of his parents, if possible, to increase the accuracy of the paternity test. However, testing only one of his parents can still be helpful.

If for some reason we are unable to test the DNA of the alleged father’s parents- for example, they themselves are deceased- then the DNA of another close relative can be used. But keep in mind that the accuracy of the paternity test will decrease the more distant the relative is from the alleged father.

Results

After we perform the paternity test, you will receive a percentage result. This percentage represents the probability that the child and alleged father are related. If the probability is 0% then they are not related. If they are related, the probability may be as high as 99.99%.

Traditional paternity tests are extremely accurate. But deceased paternity tests can be less accurate if we are not using the alleged father’s DNA. The more distant the relative, the less accurate the test will be. Therefore, it is best to obtain DNA samples from the deceased father if at all possible.

The Options Available for Paternity Testing

top-doctor-for-paternity-testing-ny-nyc-01For many men, doubts in relation to whether a child is theirs can create huge problems. It not only affects their personal lives and mental well being but can put enormous strain on the relationship between them and the child as well as with other family members and their partner. This is why paternity testing should be carried out as early as possible if there is any doubt about paternity and there are various options available for this.

If you do require a paternity test, you will generally need to provide a cheek swab as the DNA sample for yourself and the child. In addition, it is advisable to get a sample from the mother although this is not mandatory. However, it can cause delays and require further investigation if this is not provided.

Some of the testing options available

 There are a number of options available for those that require a paternity DNA test to find out whether they are the biological father of a child. The key options are:

Testing at home

 You can get kits that enable you to carry out the test at home and these are available online or at some stores. This is an easy and affordable means of getting a test and it provides people with greater convenience. However, many prefer something that is more conclusive and accurate, and in legal proceeding these results would not be admissible by the courts.

Getting a laboratory test

 Another option is to find a reputable DNA testing center and have the tests carried out at a laboratory. As long as the lab is an accredited one, this is fine for legal proceedings and means you can benefit from greater peace of mind and reassurance when it comes to the accuracy of the results. The fees are higher than with home testing but for some, this is the most suitable option.

Getting a court order

 court-order-for-paternity-test-nyc-02If you are going through legal proceedings in relation to the child, your legal representative may be able to get the courts to order a DNA test if they feel that it is necessary. This is another option you may want to consider depending on your situation and the circumstances.

Unsure of Your Relationship with a Child? A DNA Test Can Help

dna testYou love your child, but you just are not sure. Perhaps you received a notice from someone you knew long ago claiming that their child is actually yours. On the other hand, you may be a child and want to know (or confirm) that someone is truly your parent. DNA testing can help to answer this question and it can give you the information you need to have to make a decision of how to move forward. There are several options available to you and, in all cases, you can be confident in the results you receive.

How Can DNA Testing Help You?

Perhaps you just want confirmation. You may not need a legally binding DNA test. You want something you can do quickly and perhaps even without a lot of information getting around to your family. A DNA testing kit can help you with this. The process is very simple. You will obtain a kit, follow the instructions on it to submit the necessary DNA, and the lab will send you the results. Though you are conducting the testing yourself, it is still likely that, as long as you follow the instructions provided, you’ll get a very accurate result.

But, what if you want more? Perhaps there is a question about legal paternity and a matter of heirs or child support? Perhaps your grandfather wants a paternity test to confirm your newborn child to ensure he or she is truly his heir. When this is the case, you may wish to seek out a legally binding DNA test. For this type of test, the process is very much the same. However, you will need to visit the DNA testing center and allow a lab technician there to obtain the DNA samples. This still involves a swab test and there is no blood drawn. However, because it is being conducted by a professional, it is considered legally binding.How Can DNA Testing Help You?

Paternity DNA Testing NYC

DNA TestingPaternity DNA testing is the single most accurate method currently available. Everyone, with the exception of identical twins, has a completely unique DNA profile, much like a fingerprint. We inherit half of our DNA from our father and half from our mother. DNA paternity testing finds the 50% match between the DNA profiles of the child and the parent. This method is considered to be 100% accurate. Paternity DNA testing results can be used in court to prove fatherhood, and can be used as evidence for parental rights, child support, social benefits, and other situations in which proof of parental relationship is necessary.

Paternity DNA Testing

Paternity DNA Testing

Once DNA specimens are obtained by the laboratory, results are generally available in as little as three to five days. Expedited testing services can provide results within 24 hours in certain situations. Paternity DNA tests can be conducted before the child is even born so that paternity can be determined during pregnancy. An obstetrician/gynecologist will be involved in the collection of the child’s DNA sample. This procedure is performed during a specific timeframe in the pregnancy in order to ensure there is minimal risk to the developing fetus or the mother. Results obtained from prenatal DNA testing are as accurate as those from a standard paternity DNA test conducted after the child is born.

Sources of DNA

An individual’s DNA does not ever change during their lifetime, and the type of DNA sample used in the paternity test will not affect the accuracy of the results in any way. Therefore buccal swab samples are just as accurate as blood samples. Buccal swabs collect cell tissue from the inside of a person’s cheek. This method is less invasive than drawing blood, and it’s faster and painless. Non-standard samples such as cigarette butts, hairs (including roots), and personal items like toothbrushes are also potential sources of DNA. These can be useful for collecting DNA from individuals who are not cooperative with the paternity testing process.

Legality of Paternity DNA Test

All steps in the Chain of Custody of DNA samples must be properly identified and documented in order to be legally admissible in court. In a legal paternity DNA test, collection and handling of the samples must be properly done and documented. And anyone involved with the testing process, from the person collecting the specimen to the laboratory analyst performing the paternity test must be an objective third party who has no interest in the test results.

Paternity DNA tests that are properly conducted will always show a 0% probability of paternity if the man who is tested is not the biological father. They will also show a greater than 99.9% probability of paternity if the man is the father. These results are considered decisive by the court and definitively prove or disprove paternity.

The Facts About a Paternity DNA Test

BestPaternityTestingNYC1A DNA paternity test is the most widely known and most common of all relationship DNA testing.

Statistically, more than one million men in the United States have paternity tests every year. Of these million men, about one in three discovers that he is not, in fact, the biological father of the child in question.

Obviously, this could have devastating emotional effects and if the paternity testing was performed for financial reasons, the results can also have a tremendous impact.

Why is a DNA paternity test done?

Reasons for a Paternity DNA Test

There might be one of several reasons why someone would want or need to have a paternity test done. Here are a few of the most common reasons:BestPaternityTestingNYC2

  • Child Support
  • Inheritance
  • Social Security Benefits
  • Disability Benefits
  • Death Benefits
  • Immigration
  • Adoption
  • And More

There are legal and non-legal DNA paternity tests.

BestPaternityTestingNYC3Legal vs Non-Legal Paternity Tests

In cases where someone wants a paternity test just from a personal, private desire to know either whether or not they are the biological father of a child or a child who wants to know their parentage….a legal DNA paternity test isn’t necessary.

But, if there is money involved or in cases of immigration issues, it is advisable or even legally necessary to have a legal paternity test performed.

The major difference is that with a legal paternity test, there is a chain of custody that is observed through each step of the process. The parties must have verifiable identification and photographs are taken of each participant.

Still, even if you don’t need a legal paternity test, it is best to use a testing lab that uses the same techniques and standards for both legal and non-legal.
