Do You Need a Legal DNA Paternity Test?


A Legally Admissible DNA Paternity Test and the associated documentation process, called the “chain of custody process”, ensures that your DNA test results will be legally admissible in a court of law for paternity and other government agencies such as the U.S. Embassy and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The Chain of Custody process requires samples to be taken by a neutral third party.Therefore test participants are required to go to one of our local Service Center locations to have their DNA samples collected for submission to the lab.
