DNA paternity testing determines the biological father of a child. We all inherit our DNA from our biological parents — half from our mother, and half from our father. A DNA paternity test compares a child's DNA pattern with that of an "alleged father" to determine if there is a match. When performed correctly in an experienced laboratory, it's the most definitive proof of a biological relationship.
Legal Paternity Testing vs. Non-Legal / Private Paternity Testing
If you need paternity testing for any legal reasons such as: child support, child custody, immigration, birth certificate, tax forms, will/estate, court order, adoption or other legal issues a Legal Paternity Test is required. This test can be performed in our office and the samples are sent to an accredited lab. Please call for any questions or to schedule an appointment.
A Private Paternity Testing is one that you collect yourself in the privacy of your own home. This test is not admissible in court. However, this is an economical option for those who just want to know for themselves. A home kit can be purchased with all the instructions needed for you to perform the collection yourself.
