One of the most popular uses of DNA testing today is paternity
establishment. Establishing paternity is one of the most important
things parents can do for their children. Once paternity is established,
children born to unmarried parents can legally receive the same
benefits and privileges that other children receive from parents who
Legally Acknowledging Paternity
When a child is born, paternity can be established in one of two ways:
- Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity - This is a written
admission of paternity of a child born to unmarried parents. It is
sometimes called an affidavit acknowledging paternity and is
typically completed at the hospital. All hospitals have voluntary
acknowledgement of paternity forms. Voluntary
acknowledgement of paternity forms can be completed any
time after the child leaves the hospital until the child's 18th
birthday (in most states); forms are available at the local or
state child support agencies. The acknowledgement of
paternity becomes a legal finding of paternity within 60 days of
signing if it is uncontested.
- Legal paternity hearing (court or administrative) - A court can
order a paternity test or review other evidence to determine
the paternity of a child. If an alleged father fails to show up for
a paternity hearing, he will be named the father by default. If
taking a paternity test, the probability of paternity will establish
a legal presumption of paternity if the man is the father. Some
states allow children to bring action to establish paternity if they
are between the ages of 18 and 21 years old.
Some additional notes you should consider:
If the alleged father is missing, a child support agency can assist the
family in tracking him down through location services.
If the mother is married to a man who is not the biological father, her
husband is automatically indicated as the father unless legal action is
taken. This action often includes disestablishment of paternity or legal
involvement in the biological father's affidavit acknowledging paternity.
||Common DNA Tests Used for Paternity
The following DNA tests are most commonly used for
establishing paternity, directly or indirectly:
Paternity Test - To verify the biological relationship between
an alleged father and a child using DNA samples.
Viability Test - To analyze an unusual biological sample to
determine if it has enough viable DNA to use in a DNA
relationship test. This test is frequently used when an
alleged father or other tested party is missing, unavailable,
Grandparentage Test - To verify the biological relationship
between grandparents and their grandchild using DNA
samples. This test is often used to indirectly determine the
paternity of a child when the alleged father is missing. In
some states, grandparents are liable for grandchildren born
to minor children.
If the necessary participants for any of these tests are
missing or unavailable, several other tests can be used to
identify relationships between children and their alleged
fathers. These tests include:
Genetic Reconstruction - To verify the biological relationship
between alleged family members using DNA samples. Most
often, this test is used in cases where a child's alleged
parent is missing or deceased and immediate family members
of the alleged parent are available for testing.
Y-STR Test - To verify biological relationships between
males, based on the Y chromosome.
mtDNA Test - To determine if people are biologically related
through the maternal genetic line.
