Legal Paternity Test

We offer private testing services for legal DNA paternity tests.  DNA paternity testing determines whether a man could be the biological father of a child.  The legal DNA paternity tests are designed especially for use in a court of law.  In many unfortunate cases, a home test is purchased in hopes of saving money.  However, these tests do not hold up in court.  They are generally not reliable because the testing could be done outside industry protocols and/or performed by inexperienced staff.  To avoid this situation, we recommend investing once in a legal DNA paternity test that is guaranteed, notarized, and court admissible.  The accuracy of testing is guaranteed to be 99.99% accurate. Legal DNA paternity tests are commonly used for child support, custody, and inheritance.  The turn-around time for test results is generally 3-5 business days.

Testing can be arranged quickly and conveniently, regardless of your location.  Our DNA paternity collectors can collect the sample at your home, at one of our many collection sites nationwide, or at a third-party location such as a lawyer’s office.
