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

A legal paternity test tells you if a man is the biological father of a child. Because children inherit half their DNA from their dad and the other half from their mum, comparing a child’s DNA profile with that of the questioned father 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 paternity test.

This legally admissible paternity test kit contains testing for the known mother, the alleged father and one child (additional children can be tested for $195 each). We highly recommend including samples from both parents to ensure you are getting the most reliable results, but testing can be performed with the father only.

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

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

“I'd like to pass on my deepest thanks to the Identilab team. I can genuinely say that Identilab has provided the best customer care that I have ever received. Despite my own case involving some complications, I always felt supported. I felt that I could ask questions about anything, answers would always be patiently provided, and updates were frequent. So thank you!”

Kits are sent in discreet packaging via Australia Post for free, or there is an Express Post option for an additional fee.

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.

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).
