How much does it cost to establish paternity?
Costs will vary, depending on which types of procedures are performed. Prices can range from $400.00 to $2,000.00. Non-invasive prenatal testing is often more costly than testing done after a baby is born because of the technologies used to isolate the fetal DNA from the mothers DNA.
Some testing sites offer lower-cost testing that is non-court-approved, or “curiosity testing.” Many sites offer payment plans and will require full payment before they release the results to you. The new SNP microarray procedure will cost approximately $1,600.
You can reach the DNA Diagnostics Center at 1-800-798-0580 for a free consultation to discuss any of the options and find more specific costs.
Can I use the DNA test results in court?
Many centers now offer court-approved tests, but also lower cost “curiosity testing.” If you aren’t sure if you will need the results for a court case, it is probably worth the extra cost to go ahead and have a court-approved test done.
Who do I call for Paternity Testing?
