Legal DNA Tests
DNA Testing That Can Be Used For Legal Verification Of Paternity and Relationships
Legal DNA testing and home DNA tests use the same technology to determine if two or more people are biologically related. Home DNA testing is not generally admissible for anything needing legal proof however. The reason for this is that in a home test there is no way to verify the individuals who are submitting DNA to be tested. A legal DNA test can be used for applying for Social Security benefits, a pending court case, immigration, probate, adoption, and when the I.R.S. asks for proof of a dependents biological relationship. If you do not need a DNA case for one of these reasons, you may want to consider an at-home DNA test. To see the DNA tests we offer please click on HOME DNA TEST KITS.
