First of all it is important that you should have a faint idea about who the father is and do the test on him. This will save a lot of pocket expenses.

To perform the paternity test you have to first take the sample of the DNA of father and the baby. DNA is present everywhere in the body whether it is blood or saliva. DNA shows the characteristics and other important things about the person. If the two persons are related to each other then some of the DNA strands are similar but if they are not related to each other then there is no characteristic that can be similar. This is most often gathered using a buccal swab of the mouth or through a blood sample.

Buccal swab is available in the home testing kit. For gathering the DNA samples just put the swab into the mouth and take the material from the inside of the cheek. This is because DNA is also present in the saliva.
