If this test is initiated in connection to a U.S. Immigration matter, then we will need the following:
A copy of the letter / written request provided by the U.S. Embassy or USCIS Office. This document typically contains:
Your file / case number
The names of the persons that need to be tested
The type of relationship that needs to be proved
In addition, we will need the following from the participants in the U.S. and abroad:
Dates of Birth
If there is no U.S. Immigration case depending on this DNA test results, then we will just need the following for all participants in the U.S. and abroad:
Dates of Birth
Once you have provided the required information accurately, you only need to make your appointments to have your samples collected at the clinic or doctor’s office we will use. We will handle everything else with the collection kit shipping, testing, and reporting of the DNA Test results to the client, or if this test is in connection to a U.S. Immigration matter, to the corresponding immigration agencies.
If this test is not for U.S. immigration purposes and the participants in the test are overseas, we first must evaluate if we count with a local clinic or doctor’s office to collect the DNA samples for all the participants abroad. Unfortunately, sometimes this is subject to availability. However, given that many times these adoption procedures might be needed for local authorities, they can suggest the acceptable local clinics or DNA collections sites they may accept. If this suggestion is given to the client, often we can communicate with those collectors and coordinate the DNA sample collection process for the parties abroad.
