A legal test should be used for legal reasons such as changing a name on a birth certificate or as evidence in court.
Legal tests can be used to determine the biological relationship between a child and possible father, child and possible mother, or siblings. The samples must be taken and verified by an approved sampler and a strict chain of custody followed.
If you would like further advice on the type of test you may need please call our friendly Client Liaison team free* on 0870 803 0999.
