Questions about paternity and simple relationships can be answered by taking a Peace of Mind DNA test.

Peace of Mind testing process - how do I proceed?

The process is simple to start, and the application form can be downloaded here:

Order your test:  Peace of Mind application form

Complete the application form and make an appointment at one of our nominated collection centres. You can choose the collection centre that is most local to you.

Present with all donors to the appointment making sure to bring along the complete application with payment. Adults are required to have photo ID for our collector to sight.

All donors on the application are to present to the appointment where mouth swabs are collected from each of them.  Results are typically issued in 10 working days from receipt of the samples to the applicant.

Please note: The sample collection process for Peace of Mind  testing does not comply with the Family Law Act and therefore reports are not admissible for legal purposes. Testing that has been performed to the standards set by NATA or Family Law Act 1975 may avoid costly repeat testing.
