DNA Paternity Testing
At Choice DNA, you can get a legally admissible paternity test for $320, because we are committed to providing such results at a fair price. It will normally be completed in two to three business days.
There are two different kinds of paternity tests available, but we use the one known as PCR (Polymerase chain reaction). It offers the most advanced technology on the market when it comes to DNA paternity testing, and can conclusively determine parentage and non-parentage. A cheek swab is taken to collect the DNA.
The PCR can conclusively reveal either parentage or non-parentage. The results for non-parentage can be determined at 0 percent, and if the test is positive, it will be reported with a greater than 99.99 percent accuracy rate. In the past, it was acceptable for courts to use a Combined Paternity Index (CPI) of 100 to 500. Now, the tests can reveal a CPI of at least 10,000 — which is why the results are so accurate.
The cost for paternity tests are as follows:
- Non-Legal paternity test AT YOUR LOCAL OFFICE (one child and one alleged father): $175
- Non-Legal home DNA test kit MAILED TO YOU (for one child and one alleged father): $180
- Legal paternity test (one child and one alleged father): $320
Our home paternity tests are 100 percent accurate and confidential. So if you need any further information about DNA paternity testing, we’re here to help. A paternity test will provide definitive answers about a child’s father.
Paternity tests: Just the facts
With our world-class technology, we can determine parentage for a variety of reasons, including child support, custody, legal proceedings, immigration needs, insurance claims, birth certificates and simply for your personal knowledge and peace of mind.
A paternity test can be performed on a child of any age — even before he or she is born. One of our trained technicians will come to your home, office or any other location to have the test done, or you can stop by one of our many locations across the country. You can also choose to have a kit mailed to you.
If you need legal testing, you’ll need to bring valid photo identification with you to the appointment. Each test takes about 15 minutes to administer, and chain of custody procedures (meaning the legal paper trail) will be followed. Home collection kits aren’t admissible in court, so please keep this in mind when deciding which option is best for you.
Your results will be available two to five business days after the samples have been collected. Your report will include the entire genetic profile for each person who was tested. You’ll also receive a legal document about the results that is approved for court use throughout the country. In addition, you will get an explanation of the results in layman’s terms. If you need the results to be forwarded to someone else, such as legal counsel, we can arrange to do so.
