While a simple DNA paternity test can be helpful, you might need a court admissible test in some situations. If you are considering a paternity DNA test, consider the benefits of a court admissible paternity test.

No Chance of Tampering
The primary difference between a personal DNA paternity test and a court admissible one is the presence of a third party or witness. Instead of a kit being mailed to you, it will be mailed to the third party, who will ship the samples after collection. This process removes the opportunity for an alleged father, child, or other party to tamper with the samples. While an at-home kit is often just as accurate, court require a more thorough approach. In some cases, you might want that additional level of assurance for yourself as well.

Results May be Used in Court
Even if you are not currently involved in a court case where a court admissible test is required, it may come up in the future. If you are going to pay for a personal test, it is not much more to upgrade. This way, you can keep the records for use in court, if you ever need them. While you might not anticipate problems, you cannot predict the future. An accurate, legal paternity test could be extremely valuable down the road.

The benefits of a court admissible paternity test are significant, and are absolutely critical if you are or think you might need to go to court. Call Choice DNA at 800-219-4362 to learn more about court admissible paternity testing today!

During child support and custody battles, paternity of the child may come into question. In these instances, the court may request a paternity test be completed. These days, your pharmacy section may have an at home testing kit that one can complete for DNA testing. You may wonder why, then, should you go to a DNA testing lab instead of just getting one of these handy kits. There are many reasons why, but there are two that are the most important in a paternity situation.

The Difficulties of Home DNA Paternity Testing

People Can Cheat The Test

While you may never consider this, some people do go out of their way to cheat the test. The at home system is more of a peace of mind test, a quick way to make sure for those who wonder about the paternity of their child. However, when it comes to serious situations such as court, people can tend to hedge their bets to make things go their way.

Non-Court Admissible

As easy to pick up as these tests are, the fact they are cheatable and the potential for mishandling make these tests non-court admissible. Again, while you may not have ever considered such actions, there are people out there who have had this happen. It can be infuriating to take a personal paternity test to find out later that you cannot submit it to court. For this reason, it is best to start with a legal, court admissible DNA test.

When you need a court admissible test, Choice DNA Testing is available for you. Call us today at 866-593-8586.
