Peace of Mind Paternity employs a convenient collection method that uses a simple cheek swab, so it’s non-invasive and ideal for all ages. The process is painless and takes only a few minutes. Our samples are collected using a Chain of Custody documentation process. By using this process we are able to ensure courts and other government agencies will accept the results as proof of paternity. The average turnaround time for our standard paternity test is 5 – 7 business days. Our laboratory is fully accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks and utilizes advanced technology and quality control measures that allow us to provide guaranteed 100% error-free results with a probability of paternity that is typically 99.99%.
