When ordering a paternity DNA test, be sure to ask if your test results will be legally admissible. (The price is different for different types of tests, so a low cost test may indicate results that cannot be used in court).
Even if you order a paternity testing through an AABB certified lab or reseller you may not be able to use the results for child support, court proceedings, immigration, Social Security benefits etc.

Inexpensive home DNA testing kits are not useful in court. If you need results for child support or custody issues, divorce, inheritance, or other issues that need to be resolved in a court, be sure you are getting a legally admissible result.
Our sample collections are done by trained staff, so we can prove chain-of-custody of the sample. In other words, we can prove who the samples came from and therefore the results can be used for child support, immigration, divorce, inheritance, or establishing paternity in the eyes of the court or other government office.
When you use an inexpensive home kit (self collected) the results may be accurate, but be sure to choose the correct test the first time so you don’t need to order a duplicate test in the future.
