Is a Court DNA Test different than a Home Paternity Test?
Court DNA testing has a strict chain of custody that is followed and samples have to be collected by a certified DNA collector. You will also get legal court admissible DNA results that are notarized. The results for court testing can be used for various legal reasons and in a court of law.

The home DNA testing kit is collected by yourself in the privacy of your own home. The DNA samples will still go back to the same testing laboratory as the legal testing. But since the lab does not have proof of the people that were collected, the results cannot be used for legal purposes.
