Need closure? Our paternity testing services can help
At Divergent Healthcare, we understand the problems of the people in our community. This is exactly why we offer a number of testing services, including paternity testing, at our clinic in Calgary.
Samples are collected, dropped off or witnessed by staff if a legal test is required. At Divergent Healthcare, you can get both legal and non-legal paternity tests done. What this means is that you can use the results of our legal tests as proof in court and other legal situations. Paternity tests can also be done for a number of other reasons including providing closure to the entire family and for child support.
How does paternity testing work?
Self administered buccal swabs — from the child and alleged father– are used for paternity testing at Divergent Healthcare. These swabs are provided in a kit that is provided. You can do this in the comfort of your own home or at the clinic. They are self administered kits. Processing may take up to 3-5 days, however, this is not a problem for many as the results of the test are accurate and confidential. If you would like to receive your results faster, an additional cost can be added.
Relationship tests can also be performed at our clinic in Calgary. These involve testing a relative instead to determine whether or not the child belongs to the same family. This is done in cases where the father is unavailable. A self sampling kit can also be sent to the father’s address so that he may send samples back to the laboratory at his own convenience.
We Can book appointments for paternity testing within 24 hours.
