Further questions about paternity testing
How do I collect my samples?
For home, legal and immigration testing, sample collection is done using one of our kits. If you are doing a home paternity test, you can easily collect samples yourself whilst for legal and immigration testing, you will need a sampler.

What does the cost of a home paternity test include?
easyDNA offers paternity testing that is fast, accurate and affordable. Our accredited home paternity test for 1 child and alleged Father is priced at only $295. The price includes the DNA testing kit, laboratory analysis and results. Your test results will be ready in 5-7 working days (or 3 working days if you choose our express option).
Do I need to test the mother?
The home paternity test can be carried out with samples from the alleged father and the child, however we do suggest including the mother's sample where possible as this could help us give you a more accurate result.
How accurate is a paternity test?
Our samples are analyzed with state-of-the-art genetic identification systems using 16 different genetic markers. The results guarantee minimum probabilities in excess of 99.99%+ in cases where the alleged father is the biological father of the child. We also confirm with 100% accuracy when the father is excluded as the biological father.
Please note that with non invasive prenatal paternity testing the probability of paternity is always 99.9% in cases where the tested male is the biological father of the child.
How do I go about legal DNA testing?
EasyDNA can provide you with legal paternity testing – our test is NATA accredited and the results can be presented in a court of law or to the Australian immigration authorities as evidence of a biological relationship between father and child. Other reasons for doing this test might include: challenging a will, providing evidence in a court of law or changing the name on a birth certificate. The results can be presented to government departments, Family Law Courts and Immigration Services.
What do I do if the alleged father cannot be tested?
If the alleged father cannot be tested, easyDNA can help you out by suggesting one of the many relationship tests we offer. Thanks to these tests, we can help you get the answer you need by testing relatives of the alleged father but not testing the alleged father himself. We can carry out sibling testing, grandparents testing or aunt/uncle testing. easyDNA provides full customer support via telephone and e-mail. Our management team has a minimum of 9 years’ experience in the field of paternity testing and are always at hand to assist you with your case.
