Legal DNA Paternity Test

Posted by DNA Forensics Laboratory on April 26th, 2021

A Legal DNA Paternity Test is helpful in legal cases. Apart from emotional, physical/relational, and financial matters, the paternity test is vital for a mother’s or the alleged father's future and a child’s wellbeing. The paternity test establishes the biological relationship between a child and the alleged father. The test can be particularly essential when there is uncertainty about a child’s paternity and a father’s duties and rights. Various reasons are critical to a Legal DNA Paternity Test in India.

  • Useful in child custody, child support, adoption, birth certificates, and immigration cases

  • Helpful in establishing social, legal, and collective benefits, including legacy, veteran’s, and social security

  • Strengthens a father-child bond

  • Facilitates accurate medical history of a child for his/her health

Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) is the basis of a Legal DNA Paternity Test. A person’s DNA is the same in every non-reproductive cell. Sexual reproduction brings together the DNA of a father and a mother to create a child’s new genetic material. This unique genetic material is found in the nucleus and makes the child’s nuclear genome. Comparing a child’s DNA sequence with that of the alleged father can prove their biological relationship. The DNA test is the most advanced and reliable technology to determine the relationship between a presumed father and a child. The technique now even enables paternity tests even during a woman’s pregnancy. The result of a Legal DNA Paternity Test is 0% if the alleged person is not the child’s biological father. It is 99.99% when the alleged father is biologically related to the child.

For a Court Approved Paternity Test, the DNA samples from the child, the alleged father, are taken in the court or under the supervision of a court-appointed representative. The presence of the mother is not necessary for a Legal DNA Paternity Test. However, if a mother is present, then the process becomes simpler. Hence, it improves both accuracy and speed. However, we need to do additional DNA analysis for a single parent-child DNA test.

A Legal DNA Paternity Test should be admissible in the courts and legal systems. Hence, we carry out the required test under proper chain-of-custody. DNA Forensics Laboratory Pvt. Ltd. is the only Indian company to provide legal DNA tests to the courts and other agencies. Reliable and court-admissible paternity tests can be done here at an affordable cost of DNA testing.

A Legal DNA Paternity Test may be required in:

  • A court case

  • Organ Transplant Centers

  • Embassies/Immigration Agencies

A Court-Admissible Paternity Test may often be crucial to a legal matter, and sometimes the only desirable way to establish the father-child relationship.
