The Importance of Court-Approved DNA Tests

Although our at-home DNA tests are just as accurate, our court-approved DNA tests are designed specifically for legal proceedings. Court-approved DNA tests are often used for:

  1. Establishing paternity among unmarried parents
  2. Divorce and child custody cases
  3. Establishing child support

Using court-approved DNA paternity testing ensures accuracy, reliability, and strict adherence to legal standards.

Why Is the Chain of Custody Important?

Chain of custody of evidence in DNA testing means that a lab sample's whereabouts must always be known to ensure its reliability. From the moment the DNA sample is collected to the delivery of results, each step is carefully documented. This process involves neutral third-party collection to avoid any unauthorized person potentially tampering with them.

Health Street's Accreditation and Compliance

Health Street uses a simple cheek swab to collect DNA samples, which are tested in certified laboratories. To ensure comprehensive analysis, we compare 21 genetic markers. Our legal paternity test determines a relationship between the man and the child with 99.9 percent certainty. This level of precision is crucial for court-approved DNA paternity testing. As an accredited entity with an extensive network of clinics and corporate partners, Health Street has expertise you can rely on.
