Performing a secret paternity test with an alleged father not knowing is not something I would necessarily recommend but, I do understand there some situations that may call for you to perform paternity testing.
Today, I will share with you what you should know about performing a discreet/secret paternity test.
Performing a secret paternity test in secret without the mother’s knowledge is not something I would normally recommend. Especially, if you need the DNA result to be used in court. But, if you are married to the mother of the child in question. The husband could perform a legal paternity test without the mother’s knowledge.
Noncustodial alleged fathers cannot perform legal paternity tests without mother or, legal guardian’s permission. Being a noncustodial parent does not mean you cannot perform a paternity test. What this means is, you cannot perform a legal paternity testing. Only a peace of mind parentage test can be performed.
Peace of Mind Parentage tests can only be used for informational purposes only. If you would like to learn more about the parentage testing. Please checkout IDTO DNA Testing Center click here.
The most common DNA samples used for parentage testing without someone knowing are, toothbrush (must have been used at least 3 months), used Q-tips, cigarettes butts, etc.
Hair samples can be used but, they can be challenging. Please check out my article on DNA Testing for hair follicles here.
The standard samples have an average turnaround time of 2-3 business days. Forensic DNA test results can take an average of 2 weeks, Sometimes longer depending upon the sample being tested. Please note, utilizing forensics samples may not have enough genetic material that can be analyzed effectively. This can be due to the how the sample was maintained and handled.
It is important that you consult with the relationship testing company you decide to use about your sample was kept. I recommend that you be completely honest about your samples were kept. Therefore you can get the highest frequency of assistance.

Yes. Home paternity testing (self-collected kits) or, if you have a DNA sample collector collect your sample at your home, office or anywhere you deem private do have the same accuracy as a legal DNA test. The main differences between the two are a legal paternity test requires a legal chain of custody which allows for your result to be admissible in court.
