Interpreting Results

Due to the science behind DNA testing, results for a PATERNITY testing have to be worded in a certain way  that isn’t always easily understandable. Paternity testing will typically return one of two results: “cannot be excluded” or “excluded”. 

 

If your report contains the statement, “…[name] cannot be excluded as the biological mother / father of [name]”, this means the genetic evidence determined that the tested parent is the biological parent of the tested child.

 

If your report contains the statement, “[name] is excluded as the biological mother / father of [name]”,  this means that there is no direct parent-to-child biological relationship between the tested parent and  tested child.
