FAQ

The type of DNA test you need to prove paternity depends on several factors including:

  • Is the suspected father able and willing to submit a DNA sample?
  • Are you needing to know the paternity of an unborn child?
  • Will the results of the test be used for your own peace of mind or use in a legal matter?

If you are not certain which test is right for you, you can talk to one of our Genetic Consultants at 1-855-362-5224.

There is no difference in the results we on our tests between a home test and a legal test.

The difference is in how they can be used. A home test is not usually able to be used for legal purposes as there is no chain-of-custody, and no way to verify the identify of the participants.

Legal DNA sample collections must be done by an independent third-party, follow a strict chain-of-custody process, and be notarized. These steps are what allows the results to be used for legal reasons.

Your DNA test results are usually available in one business day, once the lab has all the DNA specimens, for paternity, maternity, and twin zygosity tests. This time frame is both home and private results.

Sibling, grandparent, and avuncular (aunt/uncle) test results are usually available in two business days once all DNA samples have arrived. The time frame is the same for both legal and home DNA results.

Prenatal non-invasive paternity test results, and Y-STR results are available in 3-5 business days, one the samples arrive at our lab.

All tests are run twice, reviewed, and signed off as accurate by a lab Ph.D. prior to sending them to you.

 DNA samples for determining paternity or other family relationships are generally done by a mouth swab. This process is painless and, in some cases, more accurate than a blood sample.

Prenatal paternity testing (non-invasive) requires a small blood sample from the mother, and a cheek swab from the suspected father.

In some cases, for example discreet testing,  it is not possible to obtain a mouth swab from participants. In those cases you may be able to have us examine an
alternative specimen for DNA, depending on the test.

Alternative samples are not able to be used in legal testing, with the exception being postmortem DNA testing. Please contact one of our expert Genetic Consultants at 1-855-362-5224 to review your case if this is your situation.

A paternity test can be performed at any time on a person of any age, including newborn babies and grown children and adults.

There is no minimum age requirement.  The DNA specimens are collected using a cheek swab which is gently rubbed on the inside of the mouth to collect cheek (buccal) cells.

We understand that DNA testing can be sensitive and emotional. We also know that most of our clients do not want other people to know that they are taking a DNA test.

We take every precaution to make sure our services are 100% private and confidential. Your information is secure from the moment you place your order, to the delivery of your results, and beyond.

We will never sell your DNA to companies that want to profit from it (a common practice). We will not provide it to any database, whether private or government. And, we do not use it for any other purpose than the specific test you request.

All results are removed from our company records 30 days after delivery of your test results. We keep them only for that time period to provide support on your case, if needed.

No. The DNA markers that are tested for paternity and kinship testing are not known to provide any information on any specific physical or medical condition that could affect your health care insurance.

A doctor’s order is not usually needed. However, in compliance with New York State law, we may ask for a prescription, court order, or a licensed attorney for all legal DNA paternity or relationship tests performed in New York state.
