DNA Test Participants

In a standard DNA paternity test, the tested parties include a child, the alleged father, and the mother. The mother's participation in the paternity test helps to exclude half of the child's DNA, leaving the other half for comparison with the alleged father's DNA. However, we can perform a paternity test without mother's participation. We won't charge you more to include the mother in testing.

DNA Collection Kit

Collecting DNA sample is quick and painless. Once you place an order we will mail you a DNA sample collection kit. The kit will contain the following:

  • Complete instructions for collecting the DNA samples
  • Buccal swabs and swab envelopes for the child, alleged father, and mother (if participating)
  • Pre-paid return envelope for shipping the samples back to the laboratory

What happens if we live in different locations?

We can send separate kits free of charge, even if the tested parties live at different addresses.

How will I get my results?

After you send in the kit(s) for testing, you have a choice of testing times (as fast as 1 day) and how you want to receive your results. Your results can be mailed to your address, or you can set up a user name and password, and download your results directly from our website portal. Most of our clients choose to access their results online, because it’s the fastest way to know the results of the test after the lab completes the analysis.

How much does a DNA test cost?

This is the number one question asked by our clients. The answer is not the most popular one, but the right answer is: It depends on YOUR circumstances and what YOU intend to do with your results. For example, some clients say “As soon as I get the results I’m going to take him (her) to court!” If that’s the intent, it’s important to know that courts don’t often accept results from “home” collection kits. That’s why DDC staffs dozens of DNA testing experts that have heard every possible situation, and can recommend the test that is best for your situation, and for your wallet. The best way to start is with a phone call.

What if I’m 100% sure I want a home paternity testing kit?

If you’ve done the research, and you’re sure a home test is what you need, then we are happy to help. DDC runs every home test twice too ensure guaranteed accuracy. The DDC home paternity test receives the same laboratory processing that has made our Legal test the #1 referred paternity test in the U.S. Home tests can be found that are cheaper, but none has the same focus on quality that the DDC test has. Also, with the DDC test, you have unlimited access to our service staff to ask questions about your results.
