DNA Testing for Immigration

Individuals petitioning for immigration to the United States are required to provide documentation of a biological relationship between themselves and a beneficiary (citizen) currently residing within our country. It is often difficult to prove a familial relationship if records or documents are challenged. DNA Paternity, Maternity or Siblingship testing is widely accepted by the U.S. Office of Immigration and Naturalization Service, embassies and consulates as direct evidence of the claimed biological relationship. The staff at the DNA Identity Laboratory at UNTHSC has worldwide experience in coordinating, collecting and transporting the appropriate samples to meet the testing requirements of the various immigration offices. Our DNA testing services are regularly requested by immigration attorneys for their clients. UNTHSC's DNA testing provides court admissible results that assist people who want to immigrate to the United States or other countries in order to obtain the necessary resident status.
