Legal Grandparent DNA Test
Our Legal Grandparent DNA Test includes one possible grandparent, one grandchild, and the mother (if available). It also includes the professional DNA collection, and results in just 2 business days.
A legal DNA grandparentage test is done to establish whether a child is a biological grandchild of the alleged grandparent(s). The grandparent test is usually performed when a child’s alleged father is not available for paternity testing. A legal grandparent test is often used to establish indirect paternity for a court case such as child support and Social Security benefits. It can also be used for probate questions, immigration cases, and when necessary, legal guardianship for the child(ren).
If you do not need the results for legal reasons, we suggest you consider our at home grandparent DNA test. The results are the same, and the lab performs the same testing, as a legal test. However, since there has not been legal proof of who was tested, determined by a chain of custody, the results are not considered legally admissible.
