Frequently Asked Questions

How Is a paternity test performed?

A buccal swab is a type of sample collection method used to collect cells from the inside of the cheek. It involves gently rubbing a sterile cotton swab along the inner surface of both cheeks, which collects loose cells and saliva for analysis. Buccal swabs are commonly used in medical diagnostics, forensic DNA testing, paternity testing and criminal investigations due to its accuracy and ease-of-use.

How do paternity tests work?

Paternity tests work by comparing the DNA profiles of the alleged father, the child, and, if available, the biological mother. At Fastest Labs of North Providence, we collect DNA samples using a simple, non-invasive cheek swab. The samples are then sent to our trusted laboratory, where they undergo analysis to determine the probability of paternity. The DNA profiles are compared, and the results provide conclusive evidence of the biological relationship between the alleged father and the child.

How early can you do a paternity test?

We recommend waiting until the child is born before conducting a paternity test. The accuracy and reliability of paternity test results are higher when the child has been born. However, consulting with our professionals to discuss specific cases and circumstances is essential. Our knowledgeable team can provide guidance based on your situation and help determine the optimal time for conducting the paternity test based on your unique situation.

Can you get a paternity test while pregnant?

Yes, it is possible to perform a paternity test while pregnant. Fastest Labs, however, does not perform the sample collection necessary for this type of test in-house. It is also safer for both mother and child to wait until the child is born.

If a paternity test must be done before the child is born we recommend seeking specialized prenatal DNA collection services that involve collecting samples such as amniotic fluid or chorionic villus sampling (CVS) performed by medical professionals. These tests can determine paternity during pregnancy. It's crucial to consult with your healthcare provider and discuss the available options for prenatal paternity testing to ensure a safe and accurate procedure.

How long does it take to receive the results of a paternity test?

At Fastest Labs of North Providence, we understand the importance of timely results for paternity tests. The turnaround time for paternity test results can vary depending on the specific type of test and the laboratory used. However, in most cases, you can expect to receive your paternity test results within a few business days to a week. Our team strives to provide accurate and expedited results without compromising quality.

Are the results of a paternity test legally binding?

Paternity test results obtained through Fastest Labs of North Providence are highly accurate and can be used as strong evidence in legal proceedings. These results hold significant weight in establishing legal paternity. However, it's important to note that the legal implications and requirements vary by jurisdiction. If you require a paternity test for legal purposes, it's recommended to consult with an attorney who specializes in family law to understand the specific legal requirements and implications in your jurisdiction.
