Legal Maternity DNA Test


Ormond Quay Paternity Services specialise in Legal DNA Testing and our test results resolve family law matters such as child support, child custody, divorce, inheritance and probate. We have conducted tests for the legal aid board, TUSLA and the majority of family lawyers in Ireland.


At Ormond Quay Paternity Services we handle all aspects of Legal DNA testing, we liaise with each party’s solicitors and schedule DNA test appointments with one of our independent third-party doctors for clients. Where required we organise separate collection appointments for the mother and child. We strive to handle this process in a timely and efficient manner.

We have a large network of partner collection clinics all over Ireland. We organise a considerable number of legal DNA tests for clients in worldwide and have organised tests in Europe, America, Asia, Australia and Africa.

Our legal maternity testing procedure follows a strict chain of custody which ensures that our test results are legally defensible in court. Strict chain of custody requires that the samples are collected by a doctor, photo identification is taken from all parties along with 2 recent passport photographs and DNA samples are securely packed for transit to the laboratory. When the samples arrive at the laboratory they are inspected thoroughly for tampering before DNA testing is conducted. DNA analysis takes 4 working day and results are produced and sent by secure email to all parties, where required they can be posted out.
