What is the Difference Between At-Home Paternity Tests and Legal Paternity Tests?

Legal Paternity Tests are conducted under strict conditions, requiring a third-party witness to oversee the DNA collection process, which ensures the results are admissible in court for cases such as custody disputes or child support.

At-home paternity tests are designed for personal knowledge, offering the same high level of accuracy without the need for a witness, making them ideal for individuals seeking answers in a more private setting. At-home paternity tests are convenient, private, and easy to administer in the comfort of your home.

Why Take an At-Home Paternity Test?

Opting for an at-home paternity test offers a unique blend of privacy, affordability, and the pursuit of truth, making it a preferred choice for many people seeking answers. It allows individuals to remain anonymous and discreetly take the test without involving or alerting the other parent.

We also offer At-Home Maternity Tests and At-Home Relationship Tests to verify meaningful biological relationships. At-home DNA tests are a great resource for adopted individuals who are looking to take the first steps into confirming biological relationships. Similarly, grandparents with doubts about their grandchild’s paternity can confirm their biological connection.
