What is a Paternity Test?
A paternity test is a type of genetic test that determines the biological relationship between a child and an alleged father. It is used to ascertain whether the alleged father is the biological father of the child in question. Paternity testing is based on the analysis of DNA. DNA contains unique genetic information inherited from biological parents.
During paternity tests, DNA samples are collected from the child, the alleged father, and, if available, the biological mother. The most common method of sample collection is a simple and painless cheek swab, which provides sufficient DNA for analysis. The collected samples are sent to a specialized laboratory for testing.
How Does a Paternity Test Prove Who the Father Is?
After DNA samples are processed, the results of a paternity test are typically presented as a probability of paternity. A probability of 99% or higher is considered as strong evidence of paternity, while results below this threshold are considered as indicating a non-biological relationship.
The following are three options for paternity testing:
- Information Paternity – No ID is required for this test, and it is not admissible in court. A simple cheek swab is all that is required to conduct this test and it is designed to offer clients peace of mind.
Legal Paternity – A valid government-issued ID is required for this test. A legal document
will be provided to clients after the results are obtained. Testing can
be done on grandparents, aunts, uncles, or siblings if the father is deceased.
Tests like this are typically used for:
- Custody cases
- Estate settlements
- Social Security benefits
- Court orders
- Prenatal Paternity – Nine-week pregnant women can take this non-invasive blood test to determine their father's identity.
