Legal DNA Testing for Surrogacy

Many families start their journey to having children using surrogates both inside and outside of the UK. There is often a requirement for a Legal DNA Test to be conducted as part of the Parental Order application. It it is sometimes needed when a child is born outside of the UK, in order to issue them a Passport to bring the child back to the UK.

At dadcheck®, we have been assisting many intended parents with their surrogacy DNA tests, with many of our families in the UK but also abroad.  Sampling overseas is not a problem at all and we are happy to help you arrange this.

You will find many recommendations on online forums from our previous customers as we have been assisting families conceiving through Surrogacy for many years.  In most recent years, many of our families have worked with surrogate mother's in Ukraine, Georgia and USA.

There are two types of Surrogacy:

In Traditional Surrogacy, the surrogate mother used her own eggs and was artificially inseminated by the intended father's sperm.

In Gestational Surrogacy the eggs of the intended mother or a donor are used and there is, therefore, no genetic connection between the child and the surrogate.

We have been assisting families with surrogacy DNA testing for over 18 years and are highly recommended in Surrogacy advice groups online.

We are able to work both UK nationwide and worldwide using our DHL Express Worldwide courier account for fast and efficient shipments overseas.

Our team of highly skilled and qualified scientists adhere to strict laboratory requirements of internationally recognised quality standard, ISO 17025 (an accreditation for testing and calibration laboratories).
