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.

Everything You Need All At One Place! 

Employment screening and background checks are vital to maintaining workforce safety. TRF has recently introduced “One Stop,” a full-service employment screening for your hiring process.

Notary Public

Why hire us for notary? In the US, a notary public is a person appointed by the state government or the state legislator. Their primary role is to serve the public as an impartial witness when important documents are signed.

At TRF, we are organized, proficient, and decisive when providing notary public services. Whether it deals with deeds, power-of-attorney, estates, foreign business, acknowledgments, oaths, etc., we have you covered.

Cheating Spouse

Many marriages fail due to infidelity. With the advent of the internet, cheating has become even more widespread, and the definition of cheating itself has been expanded by some to include online relationships. Sources estimate that 45% to 50% of married women and 50% to 60% of married men engage in extramarital affairs at some point in their relationships.

Who Is the Daddy?

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. Our paternity tests start at only $295.00. Let us help you determine which type of paternity test meets your specific needs. Test results are available in an average of 3 to 5 business days after specimens are collected from all tested parties.

Who Is the Daddy?

The facts provided in these types of investigations can assist your attorney in the recommendation of executing a child custody investigation, child visitation, child support issues, child abuse, and neglect investigations to obtain sole custody or supervised visitation.
