Immigration Paternity Testing

One of the common genetic testing services USCIS may suggest is a paternity test. This test helps to determine a biological relationship between an alleged father and child. The option to perform a paternity test may occur when an immigrant family lacks primary supporting evidence to prove a claimed biological relationship.

Immigration DNA Tests

Paternity testing is only one testing option that may be suggested based on the petitioner’s relationship to the beneficiary. Here are other suggested testing options.

  1. Maternity DNA Test - This testing option helps to determine a biological relationship between a mother and child.
