Home Paternity Test Kits
Our Home Paternity Test Kits are just as accurate as our clinic paternity test (99.9% or greater). The most important thing to know about getting a take-home paternity test is that the results are not court admissible. This means that if you might need to use the results of a paternity test for some legal purpose, you’ll need to get our legal paternity test instead. If you don’t anticipate using the results for any court proceedings, birth certificate changes, or other legal matters, you can save time and money administering the test in the comfort and privacy of your own home.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Accurate Are Home Paternity Tests?
Both our at-home paternity test kits and legal tests are statistically conclusive at the rate of 99.9% or greater. The biggest difference between the two tests (home vs. legal) is how you anticipate using the results.
How Do I Order A Home Paternity Test?
To get a home paternity test, simply purchase this product online and we’ll ship you a home kit. The kit is simple to use – all instructions are provided. The kit even includes a prepaid overnight shipping envelope for you to send the samples back to our laboratory. Our laboratory analyzes the specimens with the same quality and same techniques used in the Legal DNA test.
Can I Use Home DNA Paternity Test Results in Court?
The results of a Home Paternity Test, otherwise known as a “non-legal DNA test” or a “peace of mind DNA test,” are for your information only. The results cannot be used in court, nor for any legal purpose, simply because the DNA specimens are obtained at home. Since no independent party is checking photo ID when you do a home test, the results don’t hold up in court. However, a home paternity test provides the same accuracy of a legal test, and allows you do it in the privacy of your own home.
About Our Home Paternity Test Kits
What is a Home Paternity Test?
Home Paternity Tests compare the DNA of one person to the DNA of the alleged father to determine whether or not they are related. The most notable difference between a home DNA test and a legal DNA test is that the test results cannot be used for legal matters with a home test. However, if the test results aren’t needed for legal purposes, then home paternity testing proves to be a cheaper, more convenient option. We’ll send you the paternity test kit with instructions to be completed in the privacy of your own home, and when you send the DNA samples back then they’ll be tested using the same testing methods that we use for DNA tests performed at our clinics.
If you need additional swabs to test more than one person, be sure to add the quantity needed during the checkout process. Simply configure your order according to the number of people you need to test.
For residents of New York: Please note that non-legal DNA tests are not available for purchase in NY state.
