What is a DNA Paternity Test?
A DNA paternity tests the comparison of a child's genetic material to an alleged father's genetic material to determine the probability of them sharing a biological relationship. The mother’s sample is strongly recommended and improves statistical results.
What is the difference between the Legal Test and the informational only?
A legal test is court admissible. The identity of each individual tested is verified and the chain of custody is tracked. A third party performs the collection. Results are delivered within 3 to 5 business days. Informational or private test is for your own peace of mind and is not court admissible. An informational test can be collected by our professional collectors or even yourself with a home kit.
Can paternity be determined if alleged father is not available to test?
Yes, we offer other tests that can prove relationship with the alleged father using external family members and siblings. Grandparents, aunts and uncles, full or half siblings can be used to establish relationships with out the true alleged father's sample.
