Legal Paternity Test
Our legal paternity test includes one possible father, one child, and the mother (optional), professional DNA collection, & court ready results in 1 business day.
A chain of custody, court ready paternity test establishes if a man testing with a child is that child’s biological father. Our legal paternity results can be used for a court case involving an issue such as child support, or child custody. The test can also be used to support placing the father’s name on a birth certificate, or changing the name on an existing birth certificate. Journey Genetic Testing insists on following every legal requirement concerning the chain of custody with your sample. This means there will be no question as to the validity of the DNA results. This is important when they are entered into evidence in a legal setting. Our testing laboratory employs the latest technology to provide the most accurate results for you. We guarantee our AABB approved DNA test for legal purposes is 100% accurate.
How much is a legal paternity DNA test?
The total cost for one father, and one child, is $249.00. This includes the professional DNA collection, and the legally admissible results. There are no hidden fees. We also offer a no interest payment plan through our corporate partner Sezzle.
We understand that not everyone needs, or wants, a court admissible paternity test. When you need to know who the biological father is without a legal DNA test, there is another option. We recommend ordering our home paternity test when that is the situation. Our home paternity test provides the exact same results as our legally admissible test do. The DNA samples are processed in lab exactly the same way. Where there is a difference is that there is no chain of custody involved. Home DNA tests are not generally accepted in court as there is no legal proof of who has taken the test. When you do a home DNA test you alone know who is submitting DNA for testing. Home paternity tests account for almost 3 out of every 4 paternity tests taken.
