For legal proceedings

A DNA parentage assessment provides either clear proof of a particular familial relationship, or a definitive exclusion of paternity.

A child inherits half of its genetic material from both its mother and father. In routine cases, an assessment is made on the basis of DNA samples from the mother, child, and the possible father.

In the case of a child under the age of consent, a parentage assessment can be made with the agreement of the mother, but without any further involvement of the mother. In cases known as deficient cases (e.g. if only one parent is available), parentage can be determined with the involvement of another relation (e.g. siblings, grandparents, among others). Such assessments can be very involved, so we prefer to discuss them with the client in advance.

The DNA features assessed in this way do not allow any personal traits to be identified, apart from sex.

The prices of these services can be found in our current price list.
