Each state has various laws regarding paternity, and what tests are allowed. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Georgia please go to PATERNITY LAWS.

A Home Grandparent Test Kit In Georgia Has No Restrictions, Unlike Some Other States.

A DNA grandparent test can be performed for either personal knowledge, or for judicial or other other legal reasons. There is no difference in the outcome in Georgia, due to the stringent standards required by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be recognized in a judicial setting however, because there is no unbiased demonstation of whose DNA was taken. When a chain-of-custody DNA test is completed, the DNA specimens are collected by a competent professional collector who can authenticate the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when a paternity test with a grandparent is done, it is for personal knowledge information. A legal grandparent test will be needed, however, apply for Social Security benefits for a child, have a probate issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been requiring some tax filers to verify their dependents by the use of DNA testing.
