How Soon Can You DNA Test A Baby After Birth?

peace of mind paternity test

One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is , How soon can my baby perform a paternity test? In this article we answer this question.

There is no specific age for a child to perform DNA test for the purposes of establishing paternity. As soon as a child is born the baby can be tested with the alleged father.

The earliest a child can be tested is several days after the mother has given birth. This is assuming the child is given a clean bill of health from the hospital. DNA sample collections can be performed at a hospital or at home if we have a mobile collector in your city. If the baby can travel the sample collection can be done in-office.
