The most commonly ordered DNA test is a Paternity Test to conclusively establish whether or not a man is the biological father of a child. DNA Paternity Testing is the most advanced and accurate method available for resolving parentage for medical, legal, or personal reasons.

With advanced DNA technology, paternity testing is accurate, rapid and affordable. Paternity can now be determined within 1 to 3 business days after the samples arrive at the laboratory. Results are released immediately once the testing is completed.

We offer two types of DNA Paternity Testing which are - Legal Paternity Testing and Private Paternity Testing.

Private Paternity Test

A private paternity DNA test is an excellent choice if you want an answer for personal knowledge or peace of mind only.  Michigan Court Services will provide the kit for specimen collection and will send samples to the lab. The results of the private paternity testing are not court-admissible. The price for the private paternity test starting at:
 

  • $189 for duo (1 child, 1 alleged father)

  • $199 for trio (1 mother, 1 child, 1 alleged father)


Other options such as: (2 or more children, 1 alleged father and or mother) are available upon request. Please contact us for custom options and pricing.

Who should consider the private test option? 

The private DNA paternity testing is suitable for individuals who wish to find out the truth about paternity before deciding on the next step. The sample collection process is quick, easy and discreet and takes just minutes to complete. Once the lab receives the samples, testing is completed within 1 to 3 business days.

Does the mother need to be tested? 

Testing the mother is optional. The test is absolutely conclusive even if the mother is not tested.

Important Note:

We do NOT provide paternity test while pregnant (prenatal DNA testing).

Legal Paternity Test

Legal Paternity Testing (also known as chain-of-custody testing) is intended for court use and is accepted as definitive legal proof of paternity or non-paternity in courts. It can also provide results as proof for child support, custody, immigration, birth certificate, social security, or other legal reasons. 

If the legal testing option is chosen, an appointment will be scheduled for the parties involved for sample collection at a designated Michigan Court Services, Inc chain-of-custody sample collection facility.

The price for the Legal Paternity Testing starting at:

  • $349 for for duo (1 child, 1 alleged father)

  • $375 for trio (1 mother, 1 child, 1 alleged father)

Other options available upon request. This could be (2 or more children, 1 alleged father and or mother). Please contact us for custom options and pricing.

Can the results from the Private DNA Test be used in court? 

There is no difference in the accuracy between the private test and the legal test. However, for results to be admissible in court, proper steps must be taken during sample collection to ensure witnessing and verification, a process called "chain of custody".

Is the Private DNA Test as accurate as the Legal Test? 

The Private DNA Test is just as accurate as Legal Tests and will provide absolutely conclusive results. The only difference between the Private Test and the Legal Test is whether the sample collection is witnessed.

How DNA testing works?

During a DNA paternity test, a mouth swab specimen is collected from the child and the alleged father. Testing the mother is optional. The sample which is collected contains cells, and most of the cells in our body contain a full set of genetic information in the form of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). The DNA pattern of the child is compared to that of the alleged father. Because the genetic information of a child is inherited from his/her biological parents, examination of the DNA of the child will conclusively determine whether the alleged father is the true biological father of the child.

Important Note:

We do NOT provide paternity test while pregnant (prenatal DNA testing).

Siblings DNA Test

Do you share one biological parent, or both biological parents? Or maybe none? Michigan Court Services, Inc offers siblings DNA testing services to help brothers and sisters find out if they share both biological parents, a single parent or have no parents in common at all.

 

A siblings DNA test is worthy for when two or more individuals want to verify whether they share a common parent. Sibling testing designed only for people who are brothers and sisters – in other words both female and male participants are involved in the same test.

 

Brothers and sisters taking this test want to know if they share the same biological father. However, a sibling test will never provide a result that is as accurate as a DNA paternity test.

The price for the siblings DNA test starting at:

  • $219 - 2 siblings (male/female or female/female)

  • Turnaround time 5-7 business days.

Siblings DNA Test Results

Siblingship test results are based on statistical calculations which will provide a siblingship index. How accurate a test result will be is hard to predict as it depends on how much common genetic material the individuals share and whether or not they have included the sample of the mother. Brothers and sisters share about half (50%) of their DNA.


Test results are intended to provide a statistical likelihood that gives evidence to support the relationship in question. Providing additional parties to be tested or performing direct relationship testing may provide additional evidence.


We strongly suggest including the sample of a known mother to provide stronger results.

Siblings DNA Testing: Collecting Samples

Samples will be collected with our sample collection kit at Michigan Court Services, Inc office in Waterford Twp. MI. Sample collection done by appointments only. Please call our office at 248-618-0071 to schedule an appointment.

Common Cases for DNA Sibling Testing

The most common use for this test is to determine the likelihood of individuals having the same parents in common. In cases where one or both parents are unavailable or unwilling to be tested, the next option is to analyze DNA between siblings and make direct comparisons.

 

There are many different reasons for brothers and sisters utilize siblings DNA testing. One is to prove a biological relationship, when individuals have been separated from young, and find their alleged brother or sister later in life, frequently after parents are deceased.

 

In some cases a sibling will have doubts as to who their real father is. They will feel sure they share the same mother but have concerns over their biological father.  A sibling test will clarify whether siblings are full or half, possibly eliminating any doubts over paternity. During inheritance disputes or claims, siblings may need to prove their biological relationship as well.

Aunt/Uncle DNA Test

The aunt-uncle DNA test (or avuncular test) will determine whether a genetic relationship exists between aunts and/or uncles and their niece and/or nephew. The test results will show you a probability of relationship between all tested parties. The price for the aunt-uncle relationship DNA test starts from:

  • $219 - Aunt/Uncle DNA Test (1 aunt/uncle and 1 child)

  • Turnaround time 5-7 business days.

About Avuncular Testing

Aunt or uncle DNA testing is an alternative to paternity testing for when the alleged father of a child is unavailable for the test. Comparing the DNA of the child to that of their uncle or aunt can help determine if they are blood relatives. If the child is unrelated to their aunts and uncles, it indicates that the child’s father is also not the child’s biological father. However the lab cannot confirm this test if the aunt or uncle is not a full sibling to the alleged father in question.

 

The alleged father of the children in these cases is unable to perform a paternity test and therefore, seeks to establish paternity indirectly by testing his relatives (sisters or brothers). Aunt and Uncle DNA test will not provide the same conclusive results you would expect from a paternity test. For example, testing the alleged father and child in a paternity test will provide very accurate results in excess of 99.99%. When carrying out avuncular test, the results will only show a statistical probability of relationship.

 

Adding the mother’s sample will help provide a more accurate result because testing an alleged father’s siblings will only allow us to determine half (about 50%)  of his genes. Having the mother’s sample enables lab specialists to quickly eliminate her share of genetic sample in the child’s DNA, so we strongly suggest including the sample of a known parent to provide stronger results.

Test Results

As with all relationship DNA testing, the inclusion of the sample of the other known parents, usually the mother is recommended to strengthen the results. The test result indicates the probability of relationship; usually we use 80% number to indicate the existence of a relationship and 20% to indicate that there is no biological relationship. Test results are intended to provide a statistical likelihood that shows evidence to support the tested relationship in question.

Avuncular DNA Testing: Collecting Samples

Samples will be collected with our sample collection kit at Michigan Court Services, Inc office in Waterford Twp. MI. Sample collection done by appointments only. Please call our office at 248-618-0071 to schedule an appointment.

Grandparent DNA Test

The grandparent DNA test can be used when grandparents need to confirm the biological relationship to their grandchild. This test will provide statistical probability that the grandparents are genetically related to their grandchild. The price for the grandparent DNA test starts at:

  • $239 - Grandparent DNA Test (1 grandparent, mother and 1 child).

  • $239 - Both grandparents and 1 child.

  • $279 - Both grandparents, mother and 1 child.

  • Turnaround time 5-7 business days.

Requirements for the Grandparent DNA Test

We suggest a grandparents test when clients need to establish the paternity of a child through the child’s paternal grandparents. We suggest testing both grandparents if available as this will help obtain more conclusive results. As in all relationship testing, the sample of a common parent, normally the mother, strongly recommended. The cost of the grandparents test will change according to the number of people being tested. Please contact our office for a custom quote.

Grandparents’ Analysis

DNA analysis for both grandparents: we can only offer grandparent testing if we have samples from both grandparents. We do not offer single grandparent testing. The mother’s sample should also be included if available.

 

The grandparent DNA samples are analyzed and compared with that of the grandchild to establish a biological relationship. The mother’s samples needed to quickly eliminate her share of the DNA in the process, which in turn leaves just the paternal half to test.

Grandparent DNA Testing: Collecting Samples

Samples will be collected with our sample collection kit at Michigan Court Services, Inc office in Waterford Twp. MI. Sample collection done by appointments only. Please call our office at 248-618-0071 to schedule an appointment.

Test Results

Results are normally sent by email within 5-7 working days from when we receive the samples at the laboratory.

Test results are intended to provide a statistical likelihood that shows evidence to support the tested relationship in question. Providing additional parties to be tested or performing direct relationship testing may provide an additional evidence.
