Paternity Test Requirements for the State of New York
New York requirements for paternity testing are unique. All residents participating in a paternity test must complete the legal paternity test once they receive authorization from a participating agent, such as a physician or an attorney. The legal paternity test involves having collections witnessed by a third party. To ensure the integrity of the samples, the witness (Collector) is responsible for sending the samples and paperwork to the IDENTIGENE laboratory.
New York Paternity Test Costs
The paternity test kit can be purchased at a local retail outlet for about $30. The complete service for the New York paternity testing process (including witnessed third-party collections) is about $300. Because of the special requirements for New York residents, you want to consider contacting our Client Support Team to assist you with the process. Expert representatives are available at 888-404-4363, Monday-Friday from 9 AM to 5:30 PM Eastern Time.
