I used DNA Plus in August, 2010 to help me determine the correct biological father of my child. At that time, I was 18 weeks pregnant. I was told that the noninvasive paternity test was 99.999% accurate.
After paying out $1249.00 and following all of the instructions that DNA Plus told me to follow, I was given false results. I had assumed that, since DNA Plus had said that they have been around for so many years, that the results were correct. This company even offered a child confirmation test to be included after the baby's birth . (like a 2 for 1 DNA test)
I had the man, who was confirmed as the father, by DNA Plus, and his family all involved with the rest of my pregnancy & the birth of my daughter. The man who was presumed as the father & his family all travelled over 250 miles to be present at "our" child's birth.
After "our" baby was born, I had decided leave my job & to move to the location where the father & his family were located for support. I had gotten the "child confirmation" test results when my daughter was 1 & 1/2 months old. The second test had different results. Now, the other guy was pointed out the father. He was living in the original location that I had just moved away from. :(
I had to call the original father & the new father to straighten out the mix up. We all went through a second company because of conflicting results to find out that the second test from DNA Plus was the right one!
Damaged lives here! The first family is heart broken over losing who they thought was their new addition to their family. Not to mention the money spent by both myself & the other family all gone down the toilet. Also, the actual father never had th opportunity to be involved with my pregnancy & even worse, missed our daughter's birth!
I do not feel that this company should be allowed to do this "99.999% accurate" prenatal paternity testing anymore. It was in FACT wrong & cost our families grief.
I did call for a refund & DNA Plus told me that another girl had the same thing happen to her 6 months ago. I ended up with half of my money back. I could have sued, I'm sure. However, since all I want to do now is move on with my life, I choose not to persue any lawsuits. I DO want to make it known to any pregnant female out there unsure of paternity... DO NOT make the same mistake that I did!!!!!!!
