DDC UK offers special paternity testing services for individuals whose needs cannot be met through standard testing. For instance, some clients need answers about an alleged father who is deceased and therefore unavailable for testing.
To meet our clients' unique testing needs as best as we can, we offer special paternity testing options. It is best to call us directly to discuss your situation. In the case of a deceased tested party, more information is provided below.
When a child's alleged father is deceased, we may be able to perform a paternity test using a preserved biological sample that has been stored by a coroner or medical examiner. Before a paternity test can be performed on an unusual sample, it must undergo a viability test to verify whether it contains sufficient DNA for further testing. For more information, please see our Viability Test page.
