Paternity testing is one of the most popular DNA tests provided throughout the United States today. Many children have come to our facility to confirm the biological relationship between themselves and their father. Reasons for this type of testing can be for personal reasons or for legal reasons. Result of test can provide peace of mind or be used for court cases such as child custody or child support. It is important to specify if you are requesting a LEGAL TEST which is court admissible or for private use.
DNA Test Participants
In a standard DNA paternity test, the tested parties include a child, the alleged father, and the mother (called a trio).
The mother’s participation in the paternity test helps to exclude half of the child’s DNA, leaving the other half for comparison with the alleged father’s DNA. However, we can perform a paternity test without the mother’s participation; this is called a “motherless”, which is common. A motherless test involves additional analysis, however East Texas DNA Solutions does not have an additional charge.
Results are equally conclusive whether or not the mother participates.
Standard DNA Paternity – $395.00
The basic cost for the Chain of Custody DNA test is $395.00 for one child and one alleged father, with or without the mother. All DNA fees are paid directly to East Texas DNA Solutions. This covers our laboratory cost, coordinating the case, sample collection, appointment coordination, and shipping.
The result of a DNA paternity test is either an exclusion (the alleged father is not the biological father), or an inclusion (the alleged father is considered the biological father). For a standard paternity test, our results are guaranteed. Results are routinely at least 99.9% probability of paternity for inclusions or 100% certainty of exclusion.
