DNA Testing In Arizona
Journey Genetic Testing provides the most accurate, the most trusted, and the most affordable, direct-to-consumer DNA testing in Arizona. We guarantee 100% accuracy in your DNA results.
Arizona Paternity Testing
Discovering the truth about paternity in Arizona does not always mean needing to directly test a suspected father and child. We know that there may be times that is just not possible. We can also establish paternity indirectly by using a sibling, a grandparent, or an aunt or uncle.
We’re experts in a specific type of DNA testing in Arizona that gives our clients peace of mind. We can also do legal DNA tests when needed. You might wonder why we concentrate on paternity and family relationship tests. The reason is that tests for ancestral origins and health issues aren’t always 100% accurate.
In fact, we often provide services after someone gets an ancestry report saying they have found a possible long-lost relative. Almost 50% of the time, when taking our accredited tests, they find they can not possibly be related. When concerns are raised about household relationships, they do not normally disappear till the fact is exposed. Understanding this, and assisting you through this time, is why we are here.
Various states have rules about the kinds of DNA tests available in direct-to-consumer testing. We offer DNA testing that’s approved for use in the state of Arizona. Everyone should have the choice that suits them. We also respect the laws that decide which tests can be performed.

How Can AABB Accredited DNA Testing In Arizona Help Me?
Questions about family often come up, whether it’s through DNA tests or family stories. These questions usually don’t go away until the truth is known. If there are doubts about family relationships, we’re here to help you understand and navigate these situations.
In many situations, home DNA testing kits are enough to get the answers you’re looking for. Our home and legal testing kits give the same exact results. However, for legally accepted test results you need a DNA collector who isn’t related to you and a complete chain of custody. We have more than 125 certified DNA collection centers in Arizona for legally admissible specimen collection, but it’s necessary to make an appointment prior to having the sample collected.
We can set up DNA testing anywhere in the world. It doesn’t matter where the people being tested are; we’ll assist in finding nearby DNA collection sites for everyone. We often arrange DNA tests for people in different cities or states.
Arizona Paternity Law
It can be helpful when you are considering verifying paternity to have an understanding of the law in Arizona, and each state has their own requirements. If you are wanting to have a private test, and do not need to have a court admissible result, then you can determine for yourself if any of the state statutes apply to your situation. Our Arizona approved home DNA test kits will deliver the same 100% accurate results as our legal DNA tests, just without the legal paperwork.
This information about Arizona paternity laws is provided as general information only. Journey Genetic Testing does not provide legal advice or representation. We encourage you to research your state laws for the most current information, or contact a family law attorney.
Read Arizona’s Paternity Law
Arizona Paternity Laws: Section 25-814
Presumption of Paternity:
A. A man is presumed to be the father of the child if:
- He and the mother of the child were married at any time in the ten months immediately preceding the birth or the child is born within ten months after the marriage is terminated by death, annulment, declaration of invalidity or dissolution of marriage or after the court enters a decree of legal separation.
- Genetic testing (an AABB accredited paternity test) affirms at least a ninety-five per cent (95%) probability of paternity.
- A birth certificate is signed by the mother and father of a child born out of wedlock.
- A notarized or witnessed statement is signed by both parents acknowledging paternity or separate substantially similar notarized or witnessed statements are signed by both parents acknowledging paternity.
B. If another man is presumed to be the child’s father under subsection A, paragraph 1, an acknowledgment of paternity may be effected only with the written consent of the presumed father or after the presumption is rebutted. If the presumed father has died or cannot reasonably be located, paternity may be established without written consent.
C. Any presumption under this section shall be rebutted by clear and convincing evidence. If two or more presumptions apply, the presumption that the court determines, on the facts, is based on weightier considerations of policy and logic will control. A court decree establishing paternity of the child by another man rebuts the presumption.

Frequently Asked Questions About DNA Testing In Arizona
A home DNA test provides a cheap, private, simple, and 100% accurate method to determine relationships such as paternity, sibling, grandparents, and aunt/uncle. Having your home DNA test kit processed in a AABB accredited lab is important. The same protocols used for a legally binding DNA test in the privacy and comfort of your own home or office will be used for your home DNA test. Our home DNA paternity test can answer your biological questions privately, quickly and affordably.
The recognized and accepted process in Arizona for home paternity testing is very easy. People who take the home DNA test usually collect their DNA sample through a cheek swab, also called a buccal, swab. Rubbing the swab against the inside of the cheek painlessly collects the skin cells needed. Since we conduct two sets of tests on each buccal swab, there will be 4 swabs per person in your collection kit. Two swabs should be taken on each side of the mouth. Don’t smoke or drink coffee or tea for 3 hours before the collection, and rinse the mouth with water. When you’re done, just put the samples in the envelope we provide.
The cheek swab is the most common method of collection. Sometimes a test participant cant submit a sample because a family member is deceased, imprisoned or unavailable. For these reasons, we also offer forensic DNA processing services for other types of DNA samples, which are referred to as “non-standard samples.” Ear wax, hair (must have the root attached), discharge on a tissue, nail clippings, and toothbrushes are the most common forensic samples. A viability test is required on all non-standard samples, which requires an additional fee. For more information about the different items that can be tested, please click on NON-STANDARD DNA SAMPLES.
Unlike many locations outside of the U.S.A., almost all states will allow testing using non-standard samples. If you have a particular concern about this, please check the laws in your state.
A lot of test participants live too far apart to do the home DNA test using the same DNA kit. For these situations, we offer an option to have multiple collection kits shipped out. Simply choose the option for an additional address when you place your order. Upon selecting that option, we will send a second collection kit to the shipping address indicted for the additional kit(s). When your DNA samples and case information are received back in the lab, identical case numbers will link them together.
Our home paternity DNA test provides privacy and peace of mind with the DNA collection done in the comfort of your home. If you need a legal paternity test for court or other legal reasons, we have over 3,500 collection locations in the USA. We are sure to have a collection site for a legal DNA collection near you. If that’s the case, you can just order our AABB-accredited DNA test for legal purposes. Learn more by clicking on LEGAL DNA TESTS.
Paternity tests always give a clear yes or no answer. If the father is unavailable, there are other DNA tests we offer to determine paternity. For example, a sibling DNA test may be used to test for possible brothers and sisters. You can also perform a grandparent DNA test for the alleged grandparent and grandchild.
The aunt/uncle avuncular DNA test with a full sibling of the alleged parent would also be convincing. Consider a Y-DNA test if 2 men want to find out if they are related through the male line. This test is also always conclusive. If more than one paternal relative is available to participate in a DNA test, maybe a family genetic reconstruction test. Not certain which choice is right for your situation? One of our Genetic Consultants would be glad to provide you help. Just give us a call at 1-855-362-5224.
We offer the best home paternity tests available in direct to consumer DNA testing. Our results are guaranteed to be 100% accurate. Our paternity test kit will provide a conclusive result. This will proves if a man is either the biological father of a child, or not.
We offer the lowest price for a 24 marker AABB paternity test in the U.S.A. You can find a paternity test at CVS ®, Walgreens ®, Rite Aid ®, Target ®, and Walmart ® . Maybe when you see these drug store brands like Identigene ®, HomeDNA ® they appear to be a cheap option. Don’t be misled. All you are getting is a box that has instructions and swabs. A lab processing fee you still has to be payed (up to $139 additional) after you pay for the kit. You will end up paying MUCH more with a drugstore DNA test.
You will see a lot of different companies online selling home DNA test kits. It can be confusing when deciding which company you should choose. We believe, along with the thousands of satisfied clients we have served, that our 24 marker home DNA tests are a superior test. It is more accurate than the standard 16 marker paternity test offered by many competitors. If we are not able to get the strongest result with 24 markers, we will automatically upgrade the test and examine more markers until we are confident in the findings. There is no additional charge to you if we upgrade to a higher number of markers.
Our corporate headquarters, and our parent testing lab, are located with the United States. Our lab is the largest, most reputable, most accredited, and most trusted relational DNA paternity testing lab in the world. And finally, our at home paternity test is less expensive that other companies offering lab direct prices, with results in just one day.
