Frequently Asked Questions
"Is A $99 test is the right choice for me."
- A $99 paternity test can be more expensive to the consumer in the long run. These tests do not hold up in
court. They are generally not reliable because the testing could be done outside industry protocols and/or performed by inexperienced staff, which could lead to results that are interpreted
incorrectly leading to false results. If you are inquiring about a paternity test for any legal matter, further testing would have to be done, which would require more fees. Wouldn't it be better to
pay only once for something so important?
- "If I get a test, people will find out about it."
Each case is unique and should be handled with the utmost confidentiality. The procedures will be private and discreet. At a private laboratory, your results are confidential.
However, if you go through a child support agency, your results will be public record. Also, if the case goes to court, a judge may need to see the results.
With a privately conducted test, once you receive the results, you decide what to do with them.
- "Can I do a paternity test if the potential father of my child lives hundreds of miles away from me."
We have many potential collection sites in all 50 states and in 168 countries around the world. Each sample collection site is equipped to handle the Chain of Custody process, which
requires samples to be taken by a neutral third party. The Chain of Custody enables the results to be used in court. Separate appointments for sample collection can be made to accommodate those not
living in the same area. Samples can be collected at different times and at different collection sites.
- "I can't stand the sight of blood or needles, so I could never participate in a paternity test!"
While a blood sample can be used, most labs use a painless buccal swab to collect sample DNA from inside the participant's cheek. The swab is similar to a cotton swab, but is made of a material
called Dacron, which creates a consistent surface for the cheek cells to adhere to.
As mentioned above, this collection process is painless.
