DNA testing is the most accurate and reliable test available for determining the identity of parents. Every person inherits their DNA from their biological parents. This test compares a child’s DNA to that of the donor to determine if the donor is the biological parent. DNA test results are often utilized by the courts to establish paternity for the purposes of child support and visitation. DNA tests can also be utilized to prove parentage in the absence of an accurate birth certificate.
DNA testing is a quick and painless process. A mouth swab is taken from the child and the donor for whom paternity is being established. The results are returned in approximately a week.
DNA testing costs $325 for up to three people (child, mother, father or child, father 1, father 2)
