DNA Test Options
What types of Paternity tests do you offer?
Legal Paternity Test
This is our highly recommended test. If the child is under 18, it is strongly recommended that you choose this option. Results can be used in court to support any legal purpose, including: amending a birth certificate, child support orders, etc.
Has the alleged father recently died?
- We can use a FTA blood card sample or DNA sample from the deceased. The sample is usually collected by the coroner or funeral home director. There is an additional fee for using a FTA blood sample card or DNA sample from a deceased individual. The results to this test may be used for legal purposes, such as SSI or survivor benefits.
- If the alleged father is incarcerated or has been deceased for a long time (body is not accessible) but at least one of his parents are alive and available for testing, then a Grandparentage DNA Test is the best option. Paternity can be legally determined if grand paternity is proven.
Non-Legal Peace of Mind Paternity Test
If you just want to know the truth and you do not need a paternity test that is court admissible, then this is the best option for you
What if I don’t want the alleged father to know about the test, or he refuses to come in for the test?
If you have a toothbrush, eating utensils, toothpick or finger/toe nails from the alleged father, we can use those items to test for DNA. Please call us at 317-620-0770 to get pricing and directions on how to preserve the items for shipping to the lab.
What’s the process to getting a DNA Test?
You book your appointment online or by phone, receive your welcome e-mail from the testing center administrator, show up for your appointment with Valid Government Issued Photo ID (all parties age 18 and over require ID), all parties involved will be swabbed, test will get shipped to our accredited laboratory, test results will come back within 2 business days, results will be e-mailed or read in office.
What if the alleged father is a minor?
If the alleged father is minor, consent from a legal guardian is required. This means the legal guardian will need to be at the appointment in order to give consent that the minor can be tested in our office.
Can I receive my test results by phone?
No, we will not give you your results over the phone. Results will be sent by e-mail or one of the parties involved can come to the office to pick up the results, or there can be scheduled time for administrator to reveal test results in office with all parties present in the event mediation or counseling is needed.
Will my privacy be protected?
Absolutely! We take our clients’ privacy very seriously. We will not release any information about your case to anyone without your authorization. We will always follow any special instructions you give us for communicating with you or other parties involved in your test.
