DNA Tests for Immigration

DNA Tests for Immigration

We act in cases of immigration into the UK and generally this is either or both of:

  • a) a paternity test to determine whether a tested male is the true biological father of a child,
  • b) a maternity test to determine whether a tested female is the true biological mother of a child.

Such tests are often associated with immigration cases where the authorities wish to have evidence of the precise family relationship.

A maternity test is performed in exactly the same way as a paternity test and the results are just as accurate. As always, we strongly advise where possible to involve both parents in the test for a more conclusive result.

It is in the interest of your clients to precisely follow our identity check procedures and DNA sampling procedures and you can find information on this in a subsequent section.

Immigration authorities will often require both a maternity and a paternity test.

We will provide any necessary consent forms and give advice on these matters at the time of ordering.

If you would like to discuss a case, request a quotation or place an order, please feel free to call us on either 0131 516 3966 or 0131 240 1280.
