Do You Need A Paternity Test?

Our tests are 99.9% accurate and 100% confidential. In most cases the results can be expected within 48 hours once the laboratory starts processing your samples

Have you ever wondered who your long-lost father is? Has an ex-wife or girlfriend demanded support for a child you are sure is not yours? Has a husband or boyfriend accused you of infidelity to deny support for your child? Have you been denied inheritance by the heirs of the man you are sure is your father? If you have been faced with any of these questions, a paternity test is the best way to find out the answer.

A paternity test is the most accurate method of determining biological fatherhood. It is done by collecting and comparing DNA samples taken from both the suspected father and the offspring. The reliability of paternity testing is as high as 99.9 percent.

Although DNA testing has been around for quite some time, it has only been recently that the costs have gone down and made it available to most anyone. Of all the reasons why genetic testing is done, paternity testing is by far conducted the most.

And these are the most common reasons for requesting a paternity test:
• Child Support
• Child Custody
• Inheritance
• Immigration
• Social Security Benefits
• Military Survivor Benefits
• Insurance
• Peace of Mind

In many instances, especially those involving legal cases to demand child support, custody or inheritance, the paternity test needs to be court approved. In the United States, the only DNA test results legally admissible in court and accepted by government agencies are those that come from a laboratory accredited by the AABB.

Oftentimes, a man who is proven by a paternity test to be the biological father will be more likely to give the material and, at times, emotional support his child needs, and may even assume an active role in his offspring’s life.

However, a legal paternity test benefits not just the party making the demand. Statistics show that one of every three men who undergo paternity testing is not the father. Thus, paternity testing also protects men named as biological fathers in legal cases from being victims of what has come to be known as paternity fraud.

If you need to request a paternity test, make sure the laboratory you choose is AABB-accredited, has a solid reputation, is affordable, has a facility located near you, and can deliver the results of the test as quickly as possible.

Collecting a sample usually involves swabbing the gums with a Q-tip, sealing the sample and sending it off. But hair, a toothbrush, or fingernail clippings work well as samples. Even cigarette butts, old blood stains and envelope flaps that a test subject has licked can be used as samples.
