  • Paternity test

    A standard DNA test to determine with certainty if the alleged father is the biological father of the child. The paternity test can be done with the legal dispositions so that it is admissible in court.
  • A DNA test done between two of more people in order to determine if they are related by DNA. For example, a maternity test, an avuncular test (uncle, aunt), a test with grandparents, etc. The relationship test can be done with the legal dispositions to be admissible in court.
  • Prenatal paternity test

    A paternity test done before the baby is born. The test is done via blood drawn from the arm of the mother. Fetal DNA is circulating in the blood fo the mother and will be compared to a saliva sample from the alleged father. This test is done to determine with certainty if the tested man is the biological father.
