Can the paternity test be performed without the mother?

0

bulletYES. DNA paternity testing is so powerful that testing can be performed when the mother is not available. The fee for a paternity test is the same with or without the mother. If she is not tested, and the patterns between the child and the alleged father do not match, then he is still 100% excluded from being the biological father. If the patterns match, we can calculate a 99% or greater probability of paternity. The person who brings a minor in for testing must provide identification for the child and sign a form indicating that s/he has the legal authority to have the child tested.

YES. You can obtain accurate results without testing the mother. However, in a small percentage of cases, not including the mother’s sample can lead to inconclusive results, therefore it is always recommended to include the mother in the test, if she is available.

YES. We can accurately test without the mother’s sample, it simply requires a different set of statistical calculations.

Is a blood sample required? NO. Paternity testing can be performed using a buccal (cheek) swab. It is completely non-invasive, painless and convenient. 3. How are the samples collected? A sterile swab, very similar to a q-tip, is rubbed on the inside of the cheek from the child and the alleged father. If practical, the mother should also be sampled, however this is not mandatory for an accurate analysis. 4. Are you collecting saliva for analysis when a buccal swab is done? NO. While saliva is collected on the swab, it is actually the epithelial (cheek) cells that are being collected for analysis. 5. Is the cheek/buccal swab accurate? YES. Because DNA is the same in every cell in your body, analysis performed on cheek cells
