Is the test safe for the baby?
A non-invasive prenatal paternity DNA test is a simple blood draw from the mother's arm to extract the fetal DNA and a buccal mouth swab from the alleged father(s) to analyze for paternity. There is little to no risk to the unborn fetus. Unlike an an invasive amniocentesis prenatal paternity that requires amnio fluid to be extracted from the mother's belly with greater risk to the unborn fetus.
How much does it cost?
Before scheduling an appointment, we encourage you to call in to speak with a DNA collector. We can help you choose the best test pricing option for your situation. Once you choose the appropriate test option, we then collect a $500 deposit so you can schedule your DNA collection at the lab. Once the test results are ready, we then notify you and ask that you pay the remaining balance so we can release the test results. We do not pressure you to pay within a certain time period but we cannot release the test results until the finaly payment is collected.
What if the father doesn't want to submit a DNA sample at the lab?
If the alleged father does not want to be present for DNA collection, we can accept a toothbrush sample in his absence. A toothbrush is the next best DNA sample if the person can not be present at the lab for DNA collection. There is an additional fee of $350 to analyze a non-standard DNA sample.
What is the mother or alleged father lives in a different city?
Our DNA reference lab has DNA collection sites located throughout the US so we can likely accommodate especially if the other party lives in a major, metro area. There is a small additional collection fee associated with test out-of-state but we can accomodate.
