AABB Accredited Legal DNA Tests For USCIS Immigration Visa, Child Support Enforcement, and Social Security Benefits. According to the Laws of South Carolina and paternity statute 20-7-956 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

Voluntary Acknowledgment Of Paternity

"(4) A verified voluntary acknowledgment of paternity. This acknowledgment creates a rebuttable presumption of the putative father's paternity except that a verified voluntary acknowledgment of paternity executed after January 1, 1998, creates a conclusive presumption of the putative father's paternity subject to the provisions of Section 20-7-958. The person acknowledging paternity must be given the opportunity to seek legal advice prior to signing a verified voluntary acknowledgment. A verified voluntary acknowledgment must be made by a sworn document, signed by the person acknowledging paternity and witnessed by (1) that person's attorney, parent, or guardian or (2) a person eighteen years of age or older who is not related to the child and not employed or acting under the authority of the Department Bureau of Social Services. The witness must attach to the acknowledgment a written certification which specifies that prior to signing the acknowledgment, the provisions of the acknowledgment were discussed with the person acknowledging paternity and that, based upon this discussion, it is the witness' opinion that the acknowledgment is being given voluntarily and that it is not being obtained under duress or through coercion."

20-7-9545- Child Support Enforcement may establish paternity

(A) The division Office of Child Support Enforcement may establish paternity of a child in the course of a negotiation conference held pursuant to Section 20-7-9525 based upon an application for services or receipt of services by the custodian pursuant to Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. Service on the alleged father pursuant to this section must be made as provided in Section 20-7-9520. In addition to the notice of financial responsibility as set forth in Section 20-7-9515, the division office must serve the alleged father with a notice of paternity determination which shall include:

(1) an allegation that the alleged father is the natural father of the child involved;
(2) the child's name and date of birth;
(3) the name of the child's mother and the name of the person or agency having custody of the child, if other than the mother;
(4) a statement that if the alleged father fails to timely deny the allegation of paternity, the question of paternity may be resolved against the alleged father without further notice;
(5) a statement that if the alleged father timely denies the allegation of paternity:
(a) the alleged father is subject to compulsory genetic testing and that expenses incurred may be assessed against the alleged father if he is found to be the father;
(b) a genetic test may result in a presumption of paternity; and
(c) upon receipt of the genetic test results, if the alleged father continues to deny paternity, the alleged father may request the division office to refer the matter to Family Court for a determination of paternity pursuant to Section 20-7-9540. An order for child support resulting from a subsequent finding of paternity is effective from the date the alleged father was served with the notice of paternity determination.

(B) The alleged father may file a written denial of paternity with the division office within thirty days after service of the notice of paternity determination.

(C) When there is more than one alleged father of a child, the division office may serve a notice of paternity determination on each alleged father in the same consolidated proceeding or in separate proceedings. Failure to serve notice on an alleged father does not prevent the division office from serving notice on any other alleged father of the same child. [More]

DNA Analysis For Birth Certificate & AABB Immigration Testing

In general, when a person wishes to have their last name added to a child's birth certificate, the state will require that a legal DNA test be performed to prove the biological relationship. Any realtional test may be used to prove kinship such a paternity, maternity, siblingship, grandparent, and avuncular. This is also true when you desire to collect Social Security benefits or get a visa from the USCIS & Deapartment Of Homeland Security in an immigration situation where someone is being brought into the United States from another country.
