DNA paternity testing determines the biological father of a child. We all inherit our DNA from our biological parents — half from our mother, and half from our father. A DNA paternity test compares a child's DNA pattern with that of an "alleged father" to determine if there is a match. When performed correctly in an experienced laboratory, it's the most definitive proof of a biological relationship.
What happens and how long does it take?
On the day of the appointment, you will be required to bring the following: Legal photo identification (e.g. drivers license or passport) and Social Insurance Card or other identification.
Using sterile swabs our collector will take cell samples from the inside cheek from the mother, father, and child. The collected samples are then sent to our laboratory where the samples are run through a process where DNA markers are established. By identifying the DNA profile, the lab can then see if there are enough similarities between the child and the father in order to establish clear paternity.
The turnaround time for legal DNA paternity testing is 3 to 5 working days.
What about Chain of Custody and Identification?
RK Agency follows strict identification procedures during the time of your appointment to ensure full court admissibility.
A picture of the participant is taken during sample collection. Please note that these identification procedures are required only if you are using the results in court.
Detailed results are sent to the individual requesting the DNA test unless otherwise requested. For immigration cases, an official copy can be delivered directly to the embassy.
The results of the test are of 0% means the alleged father is not the biological father; a result of 99.99% or higher means the alleged father is the biological father. The CPI value represents the odds against another random, untested male in the population having the same results as the tested man.
