Or do you want to discover more about your blood line? We can help you get whatever answers and information you may need.

Here are some common reasons for paternity testing:

  • Child Custody/Support – Tests can serve useful in cases where there may be cracks in child custody or support legal battles or agreements. This is one of the most common reasons for acquiring legal paternity test results.
  • Personal Knowledge – a paternity DNA test may help in their search for more information about their family history. It can even in their search for a biological parent! These are just a few of the personal reasons one may have for wanting to conduct such a test.
  • Immigration – The United States accepts DNA testing as proof of a biological relationship. This helps when it comes to proving nationality citizenship, and other immigration statuses.
