Legal DNA Test - Paternity & Family Tests

A new approach to Legal DNA Testing from an established World leading company

DNA testing provides a great point of truth for your clients. However going through a test can be a traumatic and emotional experience. To ensure the best care for your clients DNA Legal have set up fully supported testing for both UK and international immigration clients.

For cases involving siblings or extended family members other UK and international labs only have an 80% chance of a result meaning 1 in 5 tests come back inconclusive.

At DNA Legal we test up to 68 DNA Markers (compared to 16 markers which is the industry standard) for regular DNA tests and over 720,000 for our extended family tests meaning we have a 99% chance of a result.

Full Advice & Support to all parties throughout the testing process

We understand that clients find the process of testing confusing. Our dedicated case manager will support your clients throughout the entire process.

This allows you to focus on what you do best and DNA legal will complete all the testing that is needed for your case.

We provide full support to ensure that by the time the court date arrives all individuals understand and can accept, the result of the testing conducted.

Our aim is to take away any obstacles we can for you, before court providing results in just 3-7 working days.

What We Provide Tests For

PATERNITY TEST

DNA Legal offer the most advanced legal paternity test to establish if a father and his children are biologically related.

MATERNITY TEST

Our legal maternity test is designed for court requirements, and can be used to establish if a mother and her children are biologically related for various legal reasons.

SIBLING TEST
