family relationships can be proven through dna testing
DNA testing is the use of DNA profiles to determine whether the biological relationship with another person.
Paternity and relationship testing can be especially important when the rights and duties of the father are in issue and a child’s paternity is in doubt. Tests can also determine the likelihood of someone being a biological grandparent, an aunt or uncle. We can also determine if two or more siblings are full siblings sharing the same mother and father, or a half sibling, sharing the same father, or not related at all as siblings.
Twin Zygosity testing can also be performed to be able to tell with 100% accuracy if the twins (or any number of multiples!) are identical or fraternal.
A grandparent DNA test is used to establish a genetic family relationship between a possible grandparent and grandchild or to establish paternity when the father is not available.
Aunt – Uncle
Avuncular DNA testing is used when the sample for the alleged father cannot be obtained. The child is then compared to the alleged father’s full sibling (either aunt or uncle).
A twin zygosity test can be used to conclusively determine if twins are identical or fraternal, for personal interest, or to establish compatibility for blood or tissue donation.
If you need DNA profiling for identification purposes, we can provide legally binding DNA profile report. High risk occupations are often required to obtain this report.
Our DNA banking services allow you to prepare for the future by preserving your individual genetic profile information for 15 years to allow you to test in the future.
This test can be performed as early as the 7th week of pregnancy. Our a prenatal DNA is completely non-invasive and safe for both mother and fetus.
A family reconstruction DNA test is done with one person who is questioning, and 2 paternal relatives such as alleged aunts, uncles, grandparents or siblings of the suspected father.
YSTR Male Relationship
Y-STR testing conclusively determines if (2) or more males (brothers, paternal cousins, grandfather/grandson, uncle/nephew)originate from some the same male line.
mtDNA Maternal Relationship
Unlike a YSTR test, both males and females, who believe they are related through a common female maternal lineage, can perform the mtDNA test, and can expect a 100% accurate result.
The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) often requests a DNA test to prove a biological relationship. We work with our AABB accredited lab partner to make the process easy
Legal DNA Test
Our results are 100% accurate, and we can provide you the admissible court approved evidence you need for your legal case or name change on a birth certificate.
