Peace of Mind vs. Court Admissible
Court-Admissible (Legal) test results are required for clients who need to establish biological relatedness for child support, child custody, birth certificates, probate, or other legal purposes.
Court-Admissible relationship tests requires that all tested parties have their DNA samples collected by an unrelated third party with no interest in the testing outcome. Collectors can be medical professionals, attorneys, pastors, etc. Court-Admissible tests also require strict chain-of-custody be maintained throughout the sample collection and testing process.
Peace of Mind tests do not require impartial, unrelated sample collectors or strict chain-of-custody. Sample collections for informational tests can be performed in the comfort of your own home. If your testing needs are for personal knowledge and isn’t needed for any legal purpose, then an informational test is right for you.
