WHAT IS A PATERNITY TEST?
A Paternity DNA Test compares the DNA of a child to the DNA of an Alleged Father, and preferably the child’s mother, to determine the probability of paternity.
WHAT IS THE PRICE OF AN INFORMATION-ONLY PATERNITY TEST?
Our paternity tests start at only $295. Let us help you determine which type of paternity test meets your specific needs.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY PATERNITY TEST RESULTS?
Test results are available in an average of 3 to 5 business days after specimens are collected from all tested parties.
To determine the biological father of a child, get this Informational DNA Paternity Test. This test gives you an accurate determination (with an average probability of paternity of 99% or more) of who the child’s biological father is. This test is for informational purposes only and not admissible in court or for legal evidence that may be needed for documentation.
The process is very simple and easy. It starts by collecting epithelial cell (skin cell) samples using a soft swab rubbed on the inside cheeks of the mouth to obtain DNA from the child and the alleged father. A sample from the mother is not required; however, is useful in the testing process. With the mother’s participation, the lab will be able to determine which half of the child’s DNA was contributed by the mother; therefore, the remaining DNA must then match the alleged father. Then the DNA of the potential father is analyzed to determine the probability that his genetic markers are found in the child. This is known as a percentage of probability of paternity.
Our professional medical assistant will rub soft swabs on the inside of both cheeks of the child and possible father, and any additional participants, to determine the paternity of a single child. If more than one child is being tested or if there is more than one alleged father, additional fees will be incurred. If you have a specimen with DNA on it, please ask the medical assistant if we are able to do the test on your specimen and for additional pricing.
NOTE: The Informational DNA Paternity Test is not admissible in court. Names of the tested parties will not be shown on the test results. If you need the results to be admissible in court, ask about our Chain of Custody (Legally Admissible) Paternity Test.
