Paternity Test

Paternity Test

DNA paternity testing determines the biological father of a child. We all inherit our DNA from our biological parents — half from our mother, and half from our father. A DNA paternity test compares a child's DNA pattern with that of an "alleged father" to determine if there is a match. When performed correctly in an experienced laboratory, it's the most definitive proof of a biological relationship.

If you need paternity test results that can be used as a legal document, then a Legal DNA Test must be performed. Listed below are some common legal reasons that this test is used for:

• Child Support • Birth Certificate • Court Order
• Child Custody • Tax Forms • Adoption
• Immigration • Will/Estate • Other Legal Reasons

Locations near you

A legal paternity test requires that all tested parties have their DNA samples collected at a certified facility — such as local hospitals, medical offices and health departments. When you place your order with DDC, a scheduling specialist will find an office near you to arrange an appointment.

One advantage of using DDC over other companies is that we have the largest network of certified facilites in North America, so finding a convenient location near you is easy!

DDC holds 6 laboratory certifications, including the prestigious AABB accreditation in relationship testing since 1996.

Home Paternity Test — 1-800-613-5768 (Prices Below)

If you do not need a DNA test for a legal matter — but just need a paternity test strictly for your own knowledge — you have the option of purchasing a Home DNA Test. The tested parties collect their own DNA samples and mail them to our laboratory. When you call to place an order, we will send you a DNA kit within one business day and explain the step-by-step completion process. Before ordering a home test, please consider the legal test if you believe the results will ever be used beyond personal knowledge — this way, you won't have to purchase another test in the future.
