Paternity Testing in San Antonio

What Is a Paternity DNA Test & How Does It Work?

A paternity test is a scientific test that compares the DNA of a child with that of the alleged father to determine whether they are biologically related.

DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the genetic material that makes up every living organism. Each person has their own unique DNA, which is passed down from their parents. Paternity tests can be used to confirm or rule out paternity in cases where there is uncertainty about who the father is.

The test itself is simple and only requires a cheek swab from both parties. With Fastest Labs NW San Antonio, the results of the test are usually available within 2-3 days. Paternity tests are reliable and accurate, and they provide peace of mind for both parents and children.

Whether you are trying to establish paternity for legal reasons or simply want to know for your own personal reasons, a paternity test can give you the answers you need. Learn more about our paternity testing in San Antonio by calling Fastest Labs at (210) 361-6497.

Reasons to Schedule a Paternity Test

There are many reasons why you may wish to conduct a paternity test, whether for personal reasons or to aid in the resolution of a legal dispute or court case.

Some of the most common reasons we conduct paternity tests include:

  • To Determine Parentage: One of the primary reasons to get a paternity test is to determine parentage. If there is any doubt about who the father of a child is, a paternity test can provide conclusive evidence. This is important not only for the child, but also for the parents, as it can help to establish legal and financial responsibility, as well as custody rights.
  • To Receive Child Support: If you are a mother who is not married to the father of your child, you may be entitled to receive child support from him. In order to receive child support, you will need to prove that the man is the father of your child through a paternity test.
  • To Access Genetic Information: Paternity tests can also provide access to important genetic information. This information can be used for medical purposes, such as determining whether a child is at risk for certain inherited diseases. Additionally, this information can be used for genealogical research.
