There are many reasons someone may desire a maternity or paternity test. These are DNA tests used to confirm a child’s biological parents, either for personal knowledge or for legal reasons. These DNA tests are extremely accurate.
We typically perform maternity tests for people who need a legal confirmation of maternity for immigration, citizenship, or passport purposes. This test can also be performed for other legal reasons, such as confirmation of Native American Tribal
Membership. However, we also perform maternity tests for other reasons, including for non-legal reasons. An example of a maternity test performed for a non-legal reason would be a grown child who, after being adopted, wants to confirm who their biological mother is. Or perhaps there is a mix-up in the maternity ward at a hospital and the doctors need to confirm the mother of a child. In this case, they would seek a maternity test.
Another reason someone might seek a maternity test is in the case of surrogacy. Surrogacy is the process in which a man and woman use in-vitro fertilization to have their fertilized embryos placed in another woman’s uterus so that she will grow and birth the child for that couple. This process does not always work, and, in some cases, the surrogate mother will become pregnant with her own child instead. A maternity test would be needed to confirm if the child belongs to the couple or the surrogate mother.
As with maternity tests, most paternity tests at our laboratory are performed for immigration purposes. However, we also perform many paternity tests to establish legal parenthood. These paternity tests can help the court decide about things such as custody, visitation rights, and mandatory payment of child support. Sometimes we perform paternity tests because a mother and/or her child would simply like to know who the father is for their own personal information.
Whatever your reason for seeking either a maternity or paternity test, it is important to know how these tests work.
When we perform a maternity or paternity test, we usually collect buccal cells (cheek cells) from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. We will need swab samples from both the child and the alleged father and/or mother to be tested. Once we have the cell samples, we are able to perform the DNA test for paternity or maternity.
Each person has a unique set of DNA. All of a person’s DNA put together is called a genome. When people are related, their genomes are more similar to each other than when they are not related. When we compare the genomes of multiple people, we are able to see how similar the genomes are. This comparison is called DNA profiling or Genetic Fingerprinting. This genome comparison will give a percentage result.
This percentage represents the probability that the two people- in this case a child and parent- are related. If the probability is 0% then they are not related. If they are related, the probability may be as high as 99.99%.

DNA tests can be required as part of the immigration application if other proof for biological parenthood, such as a birth certificate or other records, do not exist or are insufficient. Often, biological familial relationships must be proven to obtain an Immigrant visa, a passport for another country, or Consular Reports of Birth Abroad.
An Immigration DNA test may also be needed to qualify an applicant for an immigration benefit based on family relationships. DNA testing for immigration is extremely common now, but this has not always been the case. There are multiple reasons for the recent increase in popularity of DNA testing for immigration in the United States.
Nowadays, DNA testing for immigration is extremely common. However, until recently, the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) has used DNA testing as a last resort for the immigration process. This is partly because DNA testing has not always provided the accurate results that it does today.
Today’s DNA testing labs, such as our lab, usually collect buccal cells, or cheek cells, from inside a person’s cheek using a cheek swab made of cotton. This is a painless, non-invasive method that is preferable to the previously used method of obtaining a blood sample. Buccal cell samples provide results just as accurate as those from blood samples and therefore are now the most popular method for obtaining a DNA sample.
The first DNA testing in the United States occurred in 1987 for use in a criminal case. However, DNA testing did not become more widely available until the late 1990s. Since then, DNA testing has become more common and more accurate because the process of DNA comparison, known as DNA Profiling, has become more accurate as science has advanced.
Throughout the history of the USCIS, which assumed responsibility for the immigration services of the United States federal government in 2003, the policy on DNA testing for parentage has remained unchanged. However, in 2018, the USCIS updated its policy on DNA evidence to be in support of sibling relationships. In other words, the policy will now permit the suggestion and consideration of sibling-to-sibling DNA test results as part of the immigration process, due to the increased accuracy of sibling DNA testing in recent years. This policy provides standards for evaluating both full siblings and half siblings.
Today in the United States, this immigration DNA testing must be performed by an AABB accredited DNA testing laboratory, such as our lab, and cannot be performed via home DNA test kits or non-accredited testing laboratories. Before proceeding with immigration DNA testing, make sure you’ve received written authority from the U.S. Department of State, USCIS, or U.S. Embassy.
Therefore, the first step to obtaining a DNA test for immigration is to make sure you’ve received written authority to do so. The next step is to contact an AABB accredited lab, such as our lab. We will walk you through the entire DNA testing process.
