For court-related purposes like child support or immigration cases, DNA tests must adhere to a legal chain of custody and be conducted in an accredited laboratory.

The chain of custody ensures the sample’s integrity from collection to testing submission. This meticulous process guarantees the reliability of the sample throughout. Once the results of the legal DNA test are obtained, they can serve as evidence in various settings. Whether it’s a state, tribal, or federal court, or for adoption or immigration through the appropriate authorities, the results will be considered valid and accurate if the chain of custody process is followed.
