Legal DNA Test - Paternity & Family Tests
A new approach to Legal DNA Testing from an established world leading company
DNA testing can provide clarity and truth for your clients.
We understand the process of DNA testing can be an emotional experience – which is why we support your clients from start to finish with an empathetic and experienced team.
With an established international network, we can perform testing within the UK and globally.
Traditionally, cases involving siblings or extended family presented testing difficulties with a failure rate of up to 20% - meaning an inconclusive outcome on 1 in 5 results.
But at DNA Legal we test up to 68 DNA Markers for regular DNA tests (compared with an industry standard of just 16) and over 720,000 for extended family tests.
This gives us a 99% rate of success, guaranteeing you a conclusive result.
Full advice & support to all parties throughout the testing process
We understand that the process of DNA testing can sometimes seem complicated.
This is why we have a dedicated team of case managers well versed in the procedures involved, who will allay concerns and offer guidance throughout – letting you concentrate on your cases without hindrance.
We provide full support to ensure that by the time the court date arrives, all individuals can understand and accept the result of the testing conducted.
Our aim is to remove obstacles for you, and we provide results in just 3-7 working days from receipt of samples.
What We Provide Tests For
A legal paternity test can be required in several situations, including proving paternity in a court of law, changing a child’s name on birth certificate and child custody cases. DNA Legal offer the most advanced legal paternity test to establish if a father and his children are biologically related.
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.
Establish if and how two or more siblings are biologically related with our legal sibling DNA test. A professional sample collector will collect the DNA samples, and the results are approved for court use.
Legal avuncular testing is used to establish if an aunt or uncle is related to their niece or nephew. Avunculur testing can be conducted when an alleged father is not available for testing.
EXTENDED FAMILY TEST
Our extend family DNA tests are designed to establish more distant biological relationships, including grandparent DNA testing.
