Product Description

  • Legal Paternity Test
  • Legal Maternity Test


If testing is required for legal purposes, for example a custody case, a legal test is required. DNA Testing Centers of Canada has a national chain-of-custody network that helps our clients get tested wherever they are. The process works by providing legally accepted identification to one of our collection centers so that a chain-of-custody can be established. Examples of accepted identification for adults include a passport, citizenship card, or a driver’s license. For children who are minors a birth certificate and health card are acceptable. Each individual requires two pieces of ID. Each individual must provide a coloured passport size photograph.

Legal testing can be done for the following:

  • Legal Paternity Test
  • Legal Maternity Test
  • Legal Grandparentage Test
  • Legal Aunt/Uncle Test
  • Legal Siblingship Test

The test is performed with each person doing a buccal (cheek) swab. This consists of you rubbing a soft swab on the inside of your cheek for 30 to 40 seconds and air drying it. Tests can only be done in office.
