Our lab is fully AABB accredited and as such is capable to perform legally binding court admissible DNA testing and produce an AABB certified result.  Legally binding DNA tests can be used for many different purposes from court cases involving family matters such as child support or visitation, to change a name or birth certificate, to obtain social security or insurance benefits and more.  We also offer Immigration DNA testing for Embassies and USCIS offices world-wide.

Let our experience and expertise in the area of legal DNA testing put your mind at ease.  Our knowledgeable staff can assist you with any questions you have on the process or procedure, as well as make recommendations if you are unsure about which test is right for you.  Please contact us, we are happy to assist in any way possible. 

PaternityUSA is proud to offer the upgrade of free overnight shipping.* 

To be a court admissible test, the AABB (previously the American Association of Blood Banks) requires that the sample collection be witnessed by a neutral third party with no interest in the outcome of the test. Furthermore, photographic proof of identity is required to be submitted with the test to verify the identity of the persons submitting the samples.

This witness service can be performed by using your own witness or by using our professional services.  To read more about the chain of custody and witnessing requirements, please visit our PaternityUSA Legal DNA Testing page.  Please note that if you are conducting an Immigration or Embassy CRBA test, you must use the professional collection service.  If you would like to read more information on our Immigration testing services please visit PaternityUSA Immigration DNA Testing.

DNA is customarily collected through a buccal (or cheek) swab.  This is a painless process and is easy to do.  We do offer testing in blood however, if you prefer.  

If your parties cannot get together to do the test at the same time, whether it be from living in different areas or other mitigating circumstances, we can still serve your testing needs.  Simply select an additional collection address in the checkout process and enter the second address in the comment section of the order form.

As an alternative to using your own witness for a self-collected legal test, we also offer professional collection services. If you prefer, or have a situation where the test participants may not get along with one another or cannot agree upon a neutral witness, then a professional collection would most likely be the best option. Additionally, if the parties do not live in the same local area, separate DNA collections may need to take place. In cases like these, professional collection is often preferred over each party using their own witness. Using our witnessing services is highly suggested in instances where everyone does not live in the same area. We strive to offer different collection options to provide your legal DNA testing service at cheap prices.
