Although one of the most popular DNA testing types is a paternity test, there are many, many different types available that people don’t even know about.

The reason why paternity testing in particular has become so popular is because of the publicity it has gained from many daytime talk show programmes on television. They frequently feature paternity tests in order to settle disputes between families, but are always used as a first resort, rather than a last resort, as they should be. In some cases it is extremely important to get a DNA test for the sake of peace of mind. However, as it is such an accurate test, the results can change familial situations dramatically. There is also the legally binding reason to get a DNA test, in order to follow a court order. Either way, whatever the reason for the test, the process of getting the test results is always the same. So if you are thinking of getting a test for peace of mind reasons, as long as you are certain the samples have come from the correct participants, you do not need to worry that it will be less accurate than a legally binding test.
