Paternity Testing Facts

  • Based up the AABB 2010 annual report, 24.87% of men tested for paternity were proved not to be the father in 2010.
  • Uncles, grandparents and aunts are able to submit DNA for paternity testing if a parent is unavailable.
  • If his/her parents are not married, a child may not have a legal father until paternity is established.
  • Please note that paternity testing results are only legally-admissible if DNA specimens are collected directly from the source. Despite this, hair, toothbrushes and fingernail clippings can all be used for paternity testing.
  • One of the common collection methods is a cheek swab. This manner of gathering a sample is quick and non-invasive.

Non-Invasive Prenatal (Pre-birth) Paternity Testing

To give pregnant mothers the comfort of knowing their children’s paternity during pregnancy, safe, accurate DNA testing is now available to identify the biological father as early as eight weeks after conception. Unlike pre-birth paternity testing, other prenatal testing, such as amniocentesis or Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) test, have been linked to miscarriage.

This process is possible because Fetal DNA is present in a blood sample from the pregnant mother, which makes it possible to compare a blood sample from the mother to the DNA of a potential father, obtained via buccal (cheek) swab and obtain results with over 99% accuracy.

Many men are hesitant to offer emotional and financial support to a mother during her pregnancy if they are unsure the baby is theirs, but will offer this voluntarily if they know for a fact she is carrying their child. In many states, a court can’t order a paternity test to determine support until after the baby is born, often leaving the mother without the father’s support during pregnancy. Having confirmed paternity and the support of the father improves health of the unborn baby, the mother, and the long term relationship of the new parents going forward.

In cases where rape victims are unsure of whether their baby’s father is their husband or partner, they may terminate the pregnancy at an early stage. Before this non-invasive, early detection, prenatal dna test was available, the only tests that could prove paternity were risky, expensive, and could not be done until a later stage of the pregnancy. This test can help people make better informed decisions in these kinds of traumatic situations.
