We will need the following for the alleged father and mother in the case:
Dates of Birth
Doctor’s prescription (only needed for New York residents)
If all parties are in agreement, there is need for only one common address and telephone number.
Also, all adult parties providing DNA samples at our laboratories or any of our DNA collection sites are required to have valid and proper identification at the moment of DNA sample collection.
In addition, we will need the information for your OB-GYN’s office:
Name of Company
Name of Doctor
Case or Reference Number with that office
At this point, you will need to inform your doctor’s office that we will be in communication with him/her, so that we can coordinate how and where the amniocentesis fluid or CVS sample will be shipped. If this test is for legally binding purposes, we will need the doctor’s office to fill out a chain of custody form. In addition, the mother will need to sign a release form for the sample to be sent to our laboratory.
Once you have provided the required information accurately, we will contact you to obtain the necessary payment. At that point, we will inform you where we are going to be collecting the DNA samples for the alleged father or other participants involved. If the samples are being collected at one of our laboratories, we will arrange an appointment for them immediately. If we are using a DNA collection site, we will provide you all the pertinent information and instructions to coordinate a DNA sample collection appointment with them.
All the information required to initiate this case can be provided in our online form. If necessary, you can use the notes section in the online form to provide any additional instructions for our staff.
