Legal Y-Chromosome (Y-DNA) DNA Test
A legal Y-DNA DNA test is done to establish whether a child is biologically of the same male lineage as the other donors providing DNA mouth swab samples. This test is usually performed when the alleged father is not available for testing directly against the primary donor. A legal Y-STR test is often used to establish indirect paternity for a court case such as child support and Social Security benefits, however it cannot verify as specific relationship. It also is often used for probate questions and, when necessary, legal guardianship for a child(ren).
If you do not need the results for legal reasons, we suggest you consider our at home Y-Chromosome DNA test. The results are the same, and the lab performs the same testing, as a legal test. However, since there has not been legal proof of who was tested, determined by a chain of custody, the results are not considered legally admissible
Our test includes 2 male donors, professional DNA collection, and 100% accurate, legally admissible results from our AABB accredited lab. A payment plan is available.
