  1. When will my results be ready?

  2. Once our laboratory has received all the tested parties’ samples, we will complete the test within 2 working days and you can check your results using our online results login. If you have a pending court date and time is of the essence, you could opt for our 1-day express service. Please call 1-800-613-5768 to discuss your express service options with one of our knowledgeable case managers.

  3. How will I receive my results?

  4. First-class mail is our primary method of sending paternity test results. To protect our patients’ privacy, we send the results in a plain envelope that is not marked with our company name or logo.

    For patients who would like to see their results sooner than first-class mail permits, we offer two other options for a nominal fee:


    Fax—Patients who complete a Fax Authorization Form may receive their results via fax.
    Courier delivery—Patients may also request next-day delivery using a courier service.

    Please call 1-800-613-5768 to discuss your options with one of our helpful case managers.

  5. What do the results look like, and how do I interpret them?

  6. A paternity test result includes a table that lists:

    The allele sizes of the different DNA markers examined and used in the statistical analysis portion of the test (i.e., the DNA profile)
    A Probability of Paternity value
    A Combined Paternity Index (CPI) value

    You will want to focus on the Probability of Paternity. A result of 0% means the alleged father is not the biological father; a result of 99.99% or higher means the alleged father is the biological father. The CPI value represents the odds against another random, untested male in the population having the same results as the tested man.
