Identilab offers NATA accredited maternity tests for legal purposes, such as in Family Law disputes (custody, child support), and for changing birth certificates. By following the instructions provided, your samples will satisfy the requirements set out in the Family Law Act 1975.

A legal maternity test tells you if a woman is the biological mother of a child. Because children inherit half their DNA from their mum and the other half from their dad, comparing a child’s DNA profile with that of the questioned mother shows how likely it is that the child inherited their DNA from them. At Identilab, we look at 23 DNA markers (as well as 2 markers that tell us the sex of the person), meaning you are getting the best results available.

You don’t need a referral from your doctor or a court order to undertake a court-admissible maternity test.

This legally admissible maternity test kit contains testing for the alleged mother and one child (additional children can be tested for $195 each).

It is often possible to perform maternity testing even when the alleged mother is deceased. Please contact us on 1300 114 294 to discuss your specific situation.

If you want to know if you are the father of a child, you’ll need our paternity DNA test.

There are 3 easy steps to

“The Identilab team was amazing to work with for my DNA sample testing. They were super responsive, had a very friendly and professional approach, and were amazing at guiding me through the process. I highly recommend their services to others.”

2. Collect

Your collection kit includes full instructions on how to have your samples collected by your chosen medical professional. It’s just a swab from inside the mouth – no blood tests required. Please note that any charges for this collection are to be negotiated with the collector and are not covered by Identilab testing fees. A security satchel and pre-paid envelope are included for returning the samples to the laboratory. If you are located in Brisbane, we can collect your samples in our office at no charge.

3. Results

Once we have all the samples at the lab, we’ll perform our testing as quickly as possible. You’ll receive your results via email within 5 business days of us receiving your samples (providing the samples are of good quality and additional testing is not required).
