We correspond with the contracting party and will only discuss work with others if we have written permission to do so from the contracting party. In cases where we have a legal instruction (solicitor, barrister, local authority), we will only deal with that party and will not deal with your client directly. However, please note that all adults (16 years and over) who have provided a sample for a paternity/DNA test are entitled to receive a written copy of the results. This also includes the person who has Parental Responsibility for the child even if they have not taken part directly in the testing themselves. Results, in the form of a dadcheck®gold report, will be generally dispatched by first class post (or other means as instructed). Extra charges will apply if other means of postage (e.g. next day delivery/courier) are used.
