Typically, for paternity testing, consent forms must be signed by both the adults and custodial parent of the minor child being tested. Valid identification is also required. Adults must have a government-issued ID such as a driver’s license, passport or military ID.

For minor children, parents are required to present a birth certificate or Social Security card for identification. To prevent paternity fraud, the identification is photocopied with a photograph and thumbprint of each person tested.
