A recent latimes.com article explains that the company Genelex is offering a 10% discount on its home DNA tests, including California paternity tests. The discount coincided with Father’s Day.
The home paternity test compares the DNA of a father and a child and retails for $400. If there is a question as to who the father of a child is, a second man can be added to the test for $200. While the tests are not admissible in court, the company does offer court admissible tests for additional cost.
The Genelex website indicates that the legally admissible version of their DNA test is useful for all legal purposes including child custody and support, social security, insurance, military, adoption, inheritance, tribal and immigration rights and benefits. The test includes notarized legal document issued according to AABB Parentage Testing Committee accreditation standards and including full disclosure of test results.
With so many children being born out of wedlock in today’s society, it is no wonder that a service like this exists. California paternity tests can be powerful tools in an individual’s efforts to establish parentage and secure child support or child custody. Paternity may become a contentious matter that goes to court when a couple does not agree on who the father of their child is.
