What is DNA Testing?

Each of us is born with a unique DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) blueprint. One half of our DNA comes from our mother and the other half from our biological father and is present in nearly all types of cells in our bodies. DNA testing can determine paternity, maternity and other family relationships including siblingship questions. It can be stored to provide a method to identify us throughout our lifetime, and is used by law enforcement in a wide variety of criminal proceedings.

When should DNA be tested?

  • When anyone seeks peace of mind regarding parentage or other biological relationships
  • When there are concerns about marital infidelity
  • When paternity has not been established prior to the death of an alleged father
  • When you are curious about your ancestry
  • When parents are concerned about identifying a child should the unthinkable happen

How accurate are the results?

Typically results that prove paternity are reported as 99.99% or higher. If the alleged father is not the biological father, the probability of paternity is reported as 0%. These reported percentages are accepted as proof of paternity (or exclusion) in courts across our country and internationally.

Can paternity be proven if the alleged father is deceased?

Yes, in many cases paternity can be proven after the death of an alleged father.

Typical scenarios include:

  • If the alleged father has been killed in an accident or as a result of a violent crime, in many cases, the coroner's office has a blood spot card or other material that can be tested after it is released to us by the next of kin.
  • Samples can be obtained at the mortuary prior to interment or cremation.
  • Parents of the alleged father can be tested.
  • Non-legal testing can be performed on baby teeth or from biological stains on clothing.
