Paternity Tests by GTL Australia
If you have any doubts about the paternity of a child, you can only get the answer you need through a home paternity test.

Genetic Testing Laboratories Australia offers immigration DNA testing. Individuals immigrating into Australia might, in some cases, require a legal proof of biological relationship between themselves and their relatives. A DNA test is done to confirm that the beneficiary (the person who wishes to enter Australia) is biologically related to the petitioner (the person requesting the DNA test). Immigration testing can thus aid in granting a visa or citizenship by virtue of Australian descent.
Reliable proof of parentage can be especially important for legal reasons and Genetic Testing Laboratories Australia can provide you with a legal paternity test suitable for a myriad of different legal cases. The results of a paternity can be used in a court case to support any claims to the paternity of a child or perhaps to invalidate any previous paternity claims. Anything from getting child support to a paternity affidavit could necessitate a legal DNA test.
GTL offers a highly accurate, non-invasive prenatal paternity test with 0% risk – a scientific breakthrough in the field of prenatal testing. Your other, invasive prenatal paternity testing options are risky – with them you stand a chance of miscarriage or harming the baby. Our non-invasive test is the safest and most accurate test available.

Why Get a Prenatal Paternity Test?
The most obvious reason to get a prenatal paternity test is to know, before a child is born, just who its biological parents are. If there’s any doubt regarding the paternity of the child, prenatal paternity testing can help identify the biological father so that, ideally, your child is properly cared for by those who have decided interest in – or responsibility for – the child’s overall well-being. Our prenatal DNA test can help you do just that.
Another reason people seek a prenatal paternity test is because laws in many states require unmarried couples to fill out a form known as an Acknowledgment of Paternity form at the time their child is born. This form is a legal document that acknowledges the identity of the child’s biological father. In the event that this form remains incomplete, and the mother has not been married within the 300 days previous the birth of the child, no father will be listed on the birth certificate.
How is DNA collected for a Prenatal Paternity Test?
A home prenatal paternity test from GTL Australia can help you determine the paternity of your child while it is still in the womb – with the help of your OB/GYN. For a prenatal paternity test, DNA samples can be gathered during the first or second trimester of your pregnancy. The difference from our other paternity test options, where you collect your own DNA samples, is that prenatal paternity testing requires that your child’s DNA samples be collected by your OB/GYN via a CVS procedure or an amniocentesis.
The first method for gathering prenatal paternity test DNA is the CVS method. The CVS method can be used for early pregnancy testing, as samples can be gathered as early as the 10th week in some cases. In this procedure, chorionic villi are collected from the placenta and tested for chromosomal differences.
As mentioned, in addition to the CVS method, amniocentesis becomes a second option for collecting DNA samples for a prenatal paternity test. During an amniocentesis, an ultrasound is used to help determine the ideal place to insert a long, thin needle, which will penetrate the amniotic sac and draw a small sample of amniotic fluid. This sample contains cells shed by the unborn child. In total, an amniocentesis takes approximately 45 minutes to perform and can be used for collecting prenatal paternity test samples as late as week 21 in some cases.
