Please, take a look at our client’s most frequently asked questions below.
Generally, participants in an Avuncular DNA Test are the child, and a full-sibling of the possible father in the case. Whenever possible, the mother of the child should also be included to help get more accurate results
Unfortunately, this is not the case. The approval process involves reviewing many factors. Although, matching DNA Tests should help expedite your case.
Yes, as long as the DNA sample collections occur reasonably close in days to each other.
No, the mother’s participation is not required, but is encouraged. Since one half of the child’s DNA is contributed by the mother, the laboratory can compare her DNA to the child’s, to determine her genetic contribution. The DNA remaining must then match the alleged father’s, for him to be included as the father. Also, the probability of paternity is statistically higher when the mother participates in the test, since the lab will have known parental information available. A very high probability of paternity can still be obtained without the mother’s DNA though.
DNA Testing San Diego offers legally-admissible DNA Testing, which is performed using strict sample identification and chain-of-custody procedures. Our process is in accordance with the AABB Standards for Relationship Testing Laboratories. These test results are defensible as evidence in a court of law, and are accepted as proof of a biological relationship by government or private agencies, who may require such verification before granting certain benefits.
If an alleged father cannot be tested, regardless of the reason, paternity can be established indirectly through other close relatives. These indirect tests include: Grandparentage Tests, Siblingship Tests, or Avuncular Tests.
There is no minimum age requirement for the child (paternity testing is frequently performed shortly after birth). The samples are collected by rubbing a soft swab inside of the cheek. It is painless, non-invasive, and simple to collect, even from a young child.
In legal cases it is a requirement. However, in informational cases, the mother can be tested, but her participation is not necessary.
Your first step is finding an AABB-accredited DNA Testing laboratory. Only laboratories approved by the American Association of Blood Banks are accepted for Legal DNA Testing purposes. Only AABB lab results hold up in court. After finding the right testing site, schedule an appointment, pay the fees, and show up at the DNA Testing clinic.
Not to our knowledge, DNA Testing laboratories charge for analyzing DNA. Therefore, DNA collection sites charge their customers to cover these costs.
Generally speaking, yes. Actually, a lot of this depends on the DNA Testing site you choose. You want to choose carefully, and go for a reputable site. Ultimately, each business holds their own standard of morals, so make sure to perform your due diligence.
DNA Testing is a simple process. The standard procedure involves using a buccal swab to collect the individual’s cheek cells. Each cheek will be swabbed for up to 30 seconds to collect enough cheek cells, then the swabs will be stored in a sterile container.
Not at all, it’s a quick and noninvasive process. It only takes one minute.
After collecting your sample, the DNA Testing facility delivers your samples to an AABB DNA Testing lab. Then, the lab technicians analyze your DNA, and compile a report. Finally, they will send this report directly to you.
So far, DNA Testing is the ‘Gold Standard’ for various testing purposes, due to its accuracy. DNA Testing is about about 99.99% accurate for cases of inclusion. Conversely, it is 100% accurate for denying the existence of a genetic match.
