While a home DNA test can provide peace of mind, if you need to use your DNA testing results as part of a legal process, for example as part of a child custody case or a maintenance settlement, then you will need to arrange a ‘Court Approved DNA test’. This will mean having DNA samples taken and your identity verified by an independent sampler.
