dna paternity test

A Peace of Mind Paternity Test is a paternity test that determines whether an alleged father is biologically related to a child.

The difference between a Peace of Mind Paternity Test and a legal paternity test is a Legal DNA Paternity Test can be used for legal purposes.

For example, if you wanted to change the name on the birth certificate you will be requested in most instances to provide a DNA test to prove the biological relationship between a father and child. Then a legal DNA test would be the better option.

Peace of Mind DNA Tests are for informational purposes only. They can be used for the purposes of evidence submission to prove a biological relationship for Family Court or Birth Certificate name changes.

Please note: New York State residents are required to obtain a prescription from a New York State licensed physician before performing a DNA Test.
