Legal vs. Private DNA Testing

Private DNA relationship tests are suitable for individuals who wish to find out the truth about a biological relationship in private, before deciding on the next step.

For private knowledge testing, the DNA sample can be collected by anyone, without any witnessing, fingerprinting or other legal obligations. The sample collection process is quick and easy, and takes just minutes to complete.

Legal DNA relationship tests are intended for court use and are accepted as legal evidence of a biological relationship in court.

For legal DNA testing, sample collection must be performed and witnessed by an unbiased third party who has no interest in the outcome of the test. You may choose to arrange your own sample collection and witnessing services or our laboratory can arrange for sample collection and witnessing at one of our collection facilities across North America.

Both legal and private DNA tests are equally accurate. The only difference is whether the sample collection is witnessed or collected in private.
