Each of us has a unique genetic makeup known as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA, for short) which is passed along to us from our biological parents.
Comparing the DNA of individuals through a DNA test can often determine whether or not a genetic connection exists.
The results of DNA testing are only admissible in court for judicial matters if chain-of-custody is maintained. Though we do offer DNA testing that does not maintain the chain-of-custody, we highly recommend that DNA testing be done to maintain the chain-of-custody. The difference in the costs between the two types of DNA testing is minimal and, in most every situation, the results are needed for legal and/or judicial matters.
Beyond the peace of mind it provides, there are several important legal reasons to identify the father of a child through a DNA Paternity Test.
Paternity and maternity DNA tests can conclusively identify genetic connections. Our genetics laboratory ensures you receive the most accurate and conclusive results for your DNA test. We routinely achieve results which indicate there is a 99.99% or higher probability of verification of paternity/maternity (inclusion) and 100% probability in cases in which paternity/maternity can be excluded.
DNA testing can rule in or out other biological connections required for legal proceedings or just for peace of mind.
