Why DNA Testing is Required in Legal and Civil Cases

In many legal contexts, especially those involving the welfare of children, paternity or maternity confirmation is crucial when documentary evidence or personal testimonies are in question. AttoLife offers a comprehensive range of DNA tests that are admissible and respected by UK courts and legal entities. Paternity tests are used to determine a father-child relationship, whilst maternity tests are used to confirm a mother-child relationship.

Child Custody and Support Cases:

Establishing parentage to determine custody arrangements and support obligations.

Inheritance Claims:

Confirming biological relationships that may impact the distribution of estates.

Immigration Cases:

Verifying familial ties in visa applications to comply with UK immigration laws.
