I have been using a variety of different firms for DNA and drug and alcohol testing for years as a solicitor for the local authority. Before I found you, none of the others have the approach with all staff members that I was seeking, or the speed at which you respond to queries, issues etc.. before I came across Cellmark. Thank you.
The decision to have a paternity test is one faced by thousands of people every year, often in complicated emotional circumstances. Cellmark is committed to ensuring that all parties have access to independent advice and guidance and the following links may help you in making your decision to proceed (or not to proceed) with testing.
Please consider that choosing to have a 'peace of mind' or 'curiosity' DNA test may not be the cheapest option - if you subsequently end up having to go to court to resolve the issue you will need to undergo another test - this time a court approved test - so careful consideration of your options is sensible. We recommend that you talk to a third party such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, your GP or a family friend (or see list below).
