DNAForce proposes the DNA paternity test. The test can be done for peace of mind purposes (curiosity), or for legal purposes (court admissibility, name change, custody, etc.).


Legal option (court admissible):

If the legal option is selected, the samples must be collected according to a strict chain of custody procedure. Consequently, the report will be admissible in court, with the government or other institutions. This option is offered for the test done in the clinic. This option must be chosen when you buy the services and before the testing begins.

A DNA test for paternity is the most reliable way to determine a biological link between a father and his offspring.

A test is usually done when one of the two parties suspect the presence or absence of a biological relationship with the other. It is also done for other reasons such as validating a birth certificate, or to determine the recipient of an inheritance. The result of the paternity test is accepted as the most definitive and irrefutable proof of paternity.

What should you expect?

A paternity test appointment can be scheduled for you within approximately 2-3 business days of contacting DNAForce. The nurse will collect a swab from the inside of the mouth of both parties. The entire process takes less than ten minutes and is completely painless. The swabs will then be sent to a laboratory where the DNA will be extracted, analyzed and compared. The result will be sent to you by mail, email or telephone, whichever is convenient for you. Alternatively, you can perform the DNA test at home yourself.
