How does a DNA test prove or disprove paternity?

A child inherits half of his or her DNA from each biological parent. With a paternity test, the DNA from both the child and the possible father are isolated and analysed. If we find that 50% of the child’s DNA comes from the man tested, then the possible father is considered to be the biological parent.

Consent and the Human Tissue Act of 2004

If you’re considering testing, be aware that appropriate consent is needed for DNA paternity testing. As a requirement for all paternity tests, including those with home collection, the donor/person sending in the sample for analysis must give their consent in writing. In the case of a minor child, consent must come from someone with legal parental responsibility. The Human Tissue Act of 2004 also states that the donor must be made aware of the use of the DNA and its intended purpose.
