What does the process of paternity testing involve?
After you have set up a case with a case manager, DDC takes care of the details. They will help you set up a convenient appointment at one of our collection sites. Because DDC has thousands of collection partners all over the country, we can collect DNA from an alleged father, mother or child who may live in different states. During your appointment, a simple cheek swab is all that is needed to obtain a sample of your DNA. This process takes just a few minutes and will be repeated for each person to be tested. After all samples are collected, the cheek swabs are shipped to our lab where our scientists extract and analyze each sample twice to ensure accuracy and reliability in the results. We mail the results to all tested parties or the tested parties’ authorized reprentatives.
