Which type of DNA test do I need?

Paternity DNA Test

This type of paternity testing is used when you only need the results to satisfy yourself about the paternity of your child. Remember: The results of paternity peace of mind testing are not admissible in any LEGAL situation.

Legal DNA Test

Use this test when you need paternity test results for any legal purpose. Legal DNA tests from Affirmative follows a strict chain of custody procedure, making your test results legally defensible and acceptable to the courts.

Immigration DNA Test

Use this DNA test for any cases involving the requirement by the UK Border Agency to prove biological family relationships for the purposes of gaining entry and residency in the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer pre-natal DNA testing.

Paternity DNA Test

This is a straightforward test, which is undertaken to establish the parentage of a child or children.

The DNA paternity test is carried out by you, in your own home with a free test kit, there is no need to visit a doctor. The test is pain-free and only requires a mouth swab (very similar to a cotton-bud) to be wiped around the inside of the cheeks of those persons to be tested.

The mouth swab will be sent back to us in a reply-paid envelope supplied in the kit and the biological material gathered on the swab is then analysed by our laboratory to generate a DNA profile for each of the persons being tested.

The resulting DNA profiles will then be compared against each other to establish the parentage. The results of this peace of mind test will then be reported to you by phone, email or post, whichever you choose.

Legal DNA Test

The Legal DNA test is used when a court has ordered that a DNA Paternity Test must be undertaken (usually under Section 20 of the Family Law Reform Act 1969).

However, the DNA test sample collection must be performed and witnessed by an unbiased third party who has no interest in the outcome of the test. This witnessing and collection is normally carried out at a doctor's surgery.

Both the Peace of Mind and Legal DNA tests are accurate and completely confidential. The only difference is whether the sample collection is carried out by you, in your own home to determine Paternity or Maternity, without any legal implications; or whether the collection of the sample is witnessed by an independent party for use in a legal context.
