What Is A Wisconsin Approved Avuncular DNA Test?

The purpose of this variety of genetic study is to determine paternity (in most cases) when the potential father is not able to submit a specimen for DNA testing to determine if a child is the niece or nephew of a possible aunt or uncle. If the result is positive, this would indicate that their brother is the father of the child(ren). Each state has distinctive laws regarding paternity, and what tests are permitted. If you want to learn more about the paternity laws in Wisconsin please go to PATERNITY LAWS.

A Home Avuncular Test Kit In Wisconsin Has No Regulations, Unlike Some Other States.

An aunt or uncle DNA test can be completed for either personal knowledge, or for court or other other legal reasons. There is no change in the outcome in Wisconsin, due to the strict standards required by our partner AABB accredited laboratory. DNA reports from home kits may not be endorsed for use in court however, because there is no objective confirmation of whose DNA was contributed. When a legal DNA test is completed, the DNA specimens are collected by a experienced professional collector who can establish the identity of those being tested. Most of the time when an avuncular test is done, it is for peace of mind verification. A legal avuncular test will be needed, however, apply for Social Security benefits for a child, have a inheritance issue, or for immigration reasons. It also may be of interest to know that the I.R.S. has been demanding some people to verify their dependents by the use of DNA testing.

The findings generated by an avuncular DNA test will show the possibility of relation. As an example of comparing this test to other relationship DNA studies, siblings share 50% of their DNA, and a niece or nephew share about 25% of their DNA with their aunt or uncle. Our AABB accredited partner laboratory will begin the DNA test looking at 24 genetic markers. If a strong enough finding cannot be determined, your test will be upgraded to test additional markers, up to 46, as the lab deems necessary. There is no added cost for the upgrade as we just want to ensure your results are the strongest possible.

How Is The DNA Collected?
