Paternity DNA Test for Peace of Mind

Paternity DNA testing from DNA Diagnostics Centre can help you finally put to rest any doubts about the paternity of your child.

A paternity test works by comparing a child’s DNA profile with that of an alleged father
(and often the mother as well). Because a child inherits half of his or her DNA from each biological parent, such a comparison reveals whether the child could have inherited DNA from the alleged father. When individuals are biologically related as parent and child, their DNA profiles show predictable patterns of genetic inheritance.

Peace of mind paternity testing, also called private or in-home paternity testing, is characterised by the self-collection process. We send sample collection kits to the tested parties, and they perform their own buccal swabbing to collect their DNA samples. Because of this collection method, private paternity testing produces results that are not legally defensible. Included with the kit are consent forms, which must be signed and sent with the samples and payment.

If there is any possible reason why you may need your paternity test results for legal purposes, please check out our legal paternity testing service. To learn more about all of our paternity testing options, please read the information and visit the links below.

  • Paternity testing for peace of mind. Consider private paternity testing when you only need the results to satisfy personal curiosity about the paternity of your child. Remember: The results of peace of mind testing are not legally defensible and therefore cannot be used for legal purposes.
  • Legal paternity testing. Use this option when you need your paternity test results for any legal purpose. Legal DNA testing from DNA Diagnostics Centre follows a strict chain of custody procedure, making your test results legally defensible. Our legal test results are often used in family law cases, such as child support or child custody disputes, as well as in immigration cases.

Please note that in order to proceed with a DNA test, consent must be provided by all of the tested parties. If a child below 16 years is tested, a parent or somebody with parental responsibility over the child needs to give consent for the child's DNA to be tested.
