Legal Paternity 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, the HSE and the majority of family lawyers in Ireland.


At OQPS we handle all aspects of Legal DNA testing process. Where required we liaise with each party’s solicitors to organise the DNA test appointments with our independent third party doctors. We can accommodate separate DNA sample collection appointments for the mother and child and the alleged father.

We work with a large network of independent third-party doctors in Ireland and all over the world.

Our Legal paternity 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 return the case to OQPS, where it is forwarded on to our partner laboratory by DHL. On arrival at the laboratory they are inspected thoroughly for tampering before the DNA analysis process started. DNA analysis takes 4 working day and results are produced and sent to all parties by secure email, on request the report can be posted out via An Post.
