Peace of mind paternity testing is known as home paternity testing and non-legal paternity testing.

Parentage testing can be performed to determine if there is a biological relationships between a child and a potential parent. Paternity testing specifically seeks to determine if a father-child relationship exists. This is achieved by looking for matches in genetic markers between individuals to determine how likely it is that a parent-child relationship exists.

There is no need to get a referral from your doctor for this test.  You can simply order and pay for the test online and we will send you the test kit today.

Frequently Asked Questions

The point of a DNA parentage test is to find out who the biological parent of the child is. The most common parentage test is the paternity test, which is normally taken by men looking to establish whether they are a child’s father.

For paternity and relationship testing of any kind, the most accurate result possible is always obtained when we have samples from all parties in the biological relationship. In the case of a paternity test, this would mean a sample from the mother, the alleged father and the child. It is also possible to conduct a paternity test using samples from the alleged father and child only.

Testing both parents will provide a more accurate result. The mother’s sample provides more genetic information for the case and with that information we can more accurately determine the father’s genetic contribution. We can still perform testing without the mother, however the paternity index will be lower, but this won’t change the overall outcome of the test (included or excluded father).

We’ll normally ask you for:

  • The biological relationship you are trying to establish, i.e. “Am I the father?”.
  • The name, age and sex of each person giving a sample.
  • The availability for testing of the family members.
  • Contact details on a completed application form.

In really complex cases we may ask for a few more details, or for additional family members to provide a sample.

All information and DNA test results are strictly confidential. Reports will only be issued to the person who signed the sample application form and their authorized representatives.

If the genetic profile between the alleged father and the child does not match, then it is 100% certain that the alleged father is not the biological father. If the profiles match, there will be at least 99.9% certainty that the alleged father is the biological father.

We need the application form signed by the parent/guardian of the child, who is over 18 years of age.

Paternity tests can be performed with samples from the father and child only.

Whomever has guardianship and can sign legal documents on their behalf.

Yes, the test kit will be sent in a plain envelope. There is no company branding on the envelope.
