Maternity Test

A maternity test is used to determine whether a tested female is the true biological mother of a child.

Such tests are often associated with immigration cases or in cases where individuals who are adopted as children have traced their biological/birth mother and both parties are wanting a DNA test to confirm their relationship.

A maternity test is performed in exactly the same way as a paternity test and the results are just as accurate.  As always, we strongly advise where possible to involve both parents in the test for a more conclusive result.
