Legal Paternity Test

A Legal Paternity Test for child maintenance, inheritance disputes and immigration purposes with fast, fully accredited results that can be used as evidence in court.

Only $399 with results in 3-5 working days from receipt of samples

Government departments, such as the Border Agency, and courts such as the Family Court, require a legally compliant testing process before they will accept DNA test results as evidence of a biological relationship. They need to be sure that the correct person has been tested and that the samples have not been tampered with at any stage. You may have started with a Home DNA Paternity Test because these are convenient and cost-effective, but on receiving the results, you may feel the need for further action. Home DNA tests are not legally valid as evidence in a court, because the legal system demands certain safeguards to ensure that the sample has been collected in controlled circumstances. For this, you need a Legal Paternity Test.

What Makes a Legal Paternity Test Legally Valid?

To make the test valid, everyone taking part must start by proving their identity, using valid identification documents, with photo ID such as a passport or driving licence.

Each test participant must also provide two passport-sized photographs. These are endorsed on the back by the sample collector to verify that they are a true likeness of the person providing the sample.

An independent sampler, often a doctor or a nurse, then takes the sample and testifies that it was done properly. The samples are sealed on the spot with tamper-proof seals. They are then documented, before being sent to the laboratory. When they arrive at the laboratory, they are logged again and thoroughly checked before being tested.

This secure process provides what the law calls a “chain of custody”. This is a watertight process, during which the evidence, in this case the DNA samples, cannot be interfered with.

Will a Legal Paternity Test Help in A Family Law Case?

Legal paternity tests can be used by parents who are seeking either to prove or to disprove paternity. A mother or other carer may wish to prove paternity, in order to seek support for a child. A father may believe that a child is not his, and may wish to challenge any support order.

A legal paternity test can also be used by a parent who is being prevented from seeing a child, to prove that the child is theirs, and to support a case for access to the child.

DNA tests are not only used to prove or disprove the parentage of a child. They can also be used in cases where a will or estate is being contested, and there is uncertainty about who is legally entitled to inherit the estate.

Dog Allergy Testing Kit Review
Hello Team, I would love to thank all involved in testing my dog allergies. Since that test she finally lives her life itch free as it enabled us to avoid products causing her allergic reaction. I am very grateful for this report as her health massively improved after we removed all listed products from her diet. Since that time I have been suggesting other dog owners which battle similar issue to use your service. 5* from Blue.

Dog Allergy Test Kit Review
We had our dog allergy tested with you last year. We were advised that it is not a good enough test by our vet and many others online. This however couldn't be more wrong. We used the results to remove foods from her diet and even hypo-allergenic shampoos etc. Since she turned 1 years old we had her allergy tested by blood at the vet to see if she had out grown any of these allergies. The results were exactly the same as we were given by yourselves. Everything in red she is still allergic to. Without your help I'm not sure how we would of been able to help her in her first year. Especially given that she is allergic to almost everything hypoallergenic.

Dog Allergy Testing Review
Please forward my praise to your superiors with regards to your customer attention - thank you for all the communication at all times, and making sure all OK. Much appreciated. 1 day into eliminating salmon oil from her diet (daily supplement I was giving her for for her arthritis) and the turkey menus she is considerably better, all in 24 hrs. Can’t wait to see how she improves within a few weeks of elimination.
