Our private DNA paternity test is a reliable way to confirm paternity. It’s a popular choice among new fathers who want to confirm their biological relationship with their child. It can also be used in situations where an alleged father is unsure if they are the biological father of a child. Furthermore, paternity testing is often utilized in IVF cases and adoption/reunification cases. The legal paternity test offers results that can be used in legal proceedings, such as child custody and child support cases, as well as immigration matters. Our legal DNA paternity test reports are recognized by the US Department of Homeland Security as evidence of paternity for immigration purposes.

Legal Paternity Test
The legal paternity test is for individuals who need to receive legally admissible documents for use in court. Our legal paternity test results reports are legal documents which are admissible in courts throughout North America as conclusive evidence of paternity or non-paternity. Legal paternity testing requires a chain-of-custody procedure to be followed during sample collection by an unbiased third party collector/collection site. If you choose the legal test, you cannot collect the samples yourself. You will need to attend an appointment for chain-of-custody sample collection. This ensures proper witnessing, verification of identification and fingerprinting of the individuals participating in the test. Results will be available 1 to 2 business days from the date the samples are received at the laboratory.
Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about this test.
If the individuals to be tested live in different cities, or even different countries, we can split the kit and send each component to a different address. Since the kits are individually barcoded, the samples will still be tested together even if the are sent back separately. To order a split kit, please write the following into the comments box of the online order form “Please split kit”. Please also indicate the name and address to send each component. For example, please state “send the Alleged Mother’s portion to… (specify the alleged father’s name and address)” and “send the Child’s portion to… (specify the Child’s name and address).
