Paternity Testing

Chosing a Test:

Simply call for a free, confidential consultation. Our case managers are ready to answer any questons you might have, and help you determine which testing options are best for your situation.

The most common test our clients choose is our standard legal Paternity Test, in which we test the child, alleged father and mother (called a trio). Because we arrange the collection of the DNA samples, the results produced are a legal document, and can be used for a wide variety of purposed.

If you are only seeking private confirmation of paternity, you might consider a “home” collection. The collection process is simple and painless. You’ll receive the same quality testing as the legal paternity test, but the results will not be considered as a legal document.

We also accept paternity cases in which mother is not available for testing (called a motherless test), and we offer several special paternity testing options such as paternity testing while pregnant and immigration DNA testing.

Paying for a Test:

The fee for a legal paternity test is $475. This fee includes taxes and shipping. The laboratory that collects your samples charges a separate collection fee, usually $30-$50 per person. For your convenience, we pre-pay these fees and add them to your final bill. Before we can book your appointment, we need to receive a partial payment of $100.

The fee for a paternity test when you collect the samples at your home is $275. This fee includes taxes and shipping. We’ll send the kit directly to the location of your choice.

We accept credit cards, Western Union, and personal checks for payment. Please contact us at for more information or to book your appointment.

DDC is recognized as an Accredited Testing Laboratory by the SCC, Canada’s national accrediting body.
