If you need a legal paternity test for any reason, DDC can help. Many clients use our legal paternity test results to settle matters of family law, such as child support, custody, and visitation disputes. A legal paternity DNA test can also resolve inheritance disputes and satisfy immigration requirements where DNA evidence is needed for identification.
Our legal paternity test follows a strict chain of custody to ensure the results are legally defensible in a court of law. The chain of custody ensures:
- The samples were collected by a neutral third party, such as a doctor, nurse, or DDC representative.
- The tested parties were appropriately identified at the time of sample collection.
- The samples were sealed with tamper tape at the collection site and posted to the laboratory where they were thoroughly inspected for tampering.
