The legal paternity test is intended for court use and is accepted as definitive legal proof of paternity or non-paternity in courts throughout the US. If you need a legal Paternity test, We can schedule all the parties involved at one of our collection facilities.
It all depends on what you are looking for. The DNA test kits, such as those offered by Accurate DNA test and Ancestry DNA, are the best if you are looking to forge connections and relations with family members, shared ethnic groups, or organizations.

The baby’s free-floating fetal cells enter the mother’s bloodstream by passing through the placenta. At one of our collection centers, we take a blood draw from the mother and a cheek swab from the possible father. Finally, the lab isolates the fetal cell DNA from the mother’s blood and compares it to the possible father’s DNA profile.
Paternity testing with just a father and a child usually produces a definitive Probability of Paternity (usually 99.99% or greater if he is the father or 0% if he is not the father). However, sometimes the matches between father and child are not strong enough for conclusive results. In those rare scenarios, the mother will also need to submit a sample for results.
There is no minimum age for a child to be tested.
No. Our DNA testing kits are easy to use, done with a simple buccal cheek swab. Think of rubbing a large Q-tip on your inner mouth cheeks – that is not painful at all.

However, the samples are stable at room temperature for up to three months after sample collection and you may send the samples back anytime within three months of sample collection.
