Immigration Testing

As stated on DNA Solutions’ Immigration Testing page, “DNA testing is requested by a U.S. Embassy or United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) office when they cannot prove a clear biological relationship with prior submitted documentation. DNA Testing is the most accurate way to prove biological relationship.” DNA Solutions is our preferred lab for this testing method and we are proud to be partnered with them.

DNA Paternity Testing

If you need DNA paternity testing, Butterfield Testing can help you obtain the type of test you need, depending on your goals. We can assist you with at-home DNA tests for paternity, prenatal paternity testing (non-invasive), and legal, chain of custody paternity testing. 

Legal Paternity Testing 

Some of the most important types of paternity tests are those required for legal purposes, such as establishing proof of familial relationships. This testing is typically required for matters relating to child custody, child support, immigration, birth certificates, etc. 

In most cases, legal paternity tests require proof of chain of custody. This requires conducting testing onsite, at an approved facility. Our extensive network of approved testing sites makes getting the legally recognized results you need simple and efficient. 

Home Paternity Tests 

At-home paternity testing kits are the perfect choice when you need answers and peace of mind. Although the results are not admissible as court evidence, this type of test is simple to complete in the privacy of your own home. Simply collect DNA and submit the samples. Results will be returned directly to you. 

Prenatal Paternity Testing 

Butterfield Testing can also assist you with non-invasive, prenatal paternity tests. This safe and highly accurate testing can provide critical answers prior to your baby’s birth. This test can be administered as early as seven weeks into a pregnancy. 

Contact Butterfield Testing Solutions today for assistance with any of these types of DNA paternity testing. 

DNA Lifestyle Testing

There is a lot you can learn about yourself through DNA testing. Want to discover strategies for your optimal health? You can do this through genetics. The analysis of your genes is related to weight management and skin care. 

You are then given information that can help you make important decisions like exercise strategies and information about nutrition. A DNA lifestyle test also provides scientifically-based insights about ingredients and treatments.  This information might then help you achieve beautiful and more youthful-looking skin.
