Purpose of Test – This is an informational test for your own personal knowledge.
- While there is nothing to prevent you from printing your test report and submitting it to the authorities, we do not offer it for that purpose and caution you that you will likely spend more money attempting to convince officials that the persons named in your test report were in fact the ones whom you actually tested and that you did not tamper with the lab report than it would have cost you to purchase our Legal test. Please ask your attorney about chain-of-custody.
- If you think that you might go to court but have no definite plans, you should select the option on our Legal test to defer purchasing the notarized, hardcopy report until you are certain that you are going to court. That way you can prove the chain-of-custody should the need arise but not waste your money if it doesn’t.
- Court is expensive and slow. If you are serious about filing a case, the small additional cost for our Legal DNA test is a worthwhile expenditure.
- Your attorney should advise you further. We are restricted by law from providing you legal advice. However, we are permitted to discuss these matters in great detail with your attorney and we do not charge for such consultations. We suggest that you print the appropriate example report from our website and take it with you to your attorney or the NSO to inquire.
Indicate whether the mother is being tested or only the alleged father and child. We do not charge extra to test the mother’s DNA so most clients avail of this option. More about that in our FAQ
If you would like to test additional children or alleged fathers, please indicate the number of extra participants. There is a small charge for each additional participant however we do not charge for the additional analysis that must be performed to differentiate among related alleged parents as long as they are submitted together. Related potential fathers will have many genes in common so if the possible fathers are related, then you MUST either test them all or purchase our extended panel in order to rely on the results.
In general, it is less expensive to test all possible fathers/mothers and children together than to run additional tests at a later date.
Indicate whether you wish to use your own cotton buds or have us send you some. Ours are very nice however it is faster and more private if you obtain your supplies locally and only costs a few pesos. We provide detailed instructions by email. We are happy to send you supplies if you later change your mind so please be sure that the ship-to address is accurate.
When privacy is a major concern, it is a good idea to choose “pick-up at our office” to assure that we do not inadvertently mail you supplies.
