A: No, there is no need for everyone to be in the same country or city in order to be tested.
For legal tests that need to follow chain-of-custody of samples, we can arrange for your DNA samples to be collected anywhere, with more than 2,000 certified sample collection centers around the world. However, if we don’t have a collection center near you, we will help you find one, send the doctor a sample collection kit, explain the process, and help coordinate the shipment of the samples to our laboratory.
For example, if the Mother and Child live in Chiang Mai, Thailand, they could go to our existing certified collection center in Chiang Mai and have their DNA samples collected there. We would arrange the appointment with the doctor. Meanwhile, if the Alleged Father is in Atlanta, USA, then they would go to our sample collection center in Georgia; we would arrange the appointment for him. We then coordinate the shipping of all three samples from the two international locations, to our laboratory in the Missouri, USA, where testing will begin once all samples have arrived.
