The turnaround time in order to receive your results will depend on a couple of factors.
1. Do all parties involved with the DNA test reside in the U.S.
2. Does the beneficiary live abroad
Domestic DNA testing services have an average turnaround time of 1 to 3 business days from the date in which the laboratory receives all genetic samples. If one or more parties reside abroad the average turnaround time pre-COVID-19 was 6 to 8 weeks. Since COVID-19 the turnaround times for the completion of international DNA testing cases are to be determined. As soon as our partner AABB accredited parentage laboratory gets notified by the Department of State to resume DNA Tests Kit shipments will be when we will be able to notify the petitioner that the process has resumed.
