Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly will I get results?
For paternity tests, we will provide a detailed and comprehensive report within 3-4 business days after receiving the samples.
How old does the child have to be?
There are no age limitations. We can do collections on infants a few days old.
What if the alleged father is not available?
Paternity can still be established by testing other known family members to reconstruct the DNA lineage. Grandparents, siblings, Aunts, Uncles, can all be used to reconstruct family relationships.
Is the biological Mother’s DNA sample required?
No, we can assist with a “Motherless” test. If the biological mother is available and willing to participate, we do appreciate it.
