    Yes, they are thought to be extremely accurate . . . but as they are not FDA regulated and there is no additional verification of identity process compared to getting it done at a lab . . . they do not hold up in court to prove paternity or seek child support.

    It depends on what you mean by "work."

    The lab can analyze the DNA samples from the swabs and tell whether or not they match, but because there is no way to prove who each sample came from, the results will not stand up in a court of law for child support, birth certificate, etc.

    Additionally, because these tests are often done by "regular people," as opposed to professional lab techs, it is important to follow the instructions carefully.

    If you need more info on paternity testing and how each test is different (in-home versus a legal test), you can visit this website: www.dnacenter.com. I really hope this helps! Good luck!

    no, unless you're talking the kind where they send you the kit and you send it in for analysis.
