How Our Paternity Testing Process Works
The process is relatively simple. The individuals being tested will visit our facilities where a certified collector will meet them. The collector will take a buccal swab on the inside of the cheek of both subjects. The samples will then be analyzed for matching DNA sequences. Within the next few days, the results will be provided to relevant parties.
