The FBI’s forensic DNA case load is so backlogged that it would take two years to complete – even without any new cases added, according to a new report released by the Department of Justices’ inspector general.More than 3,200 backlogged DNA cases are still awaiting analysis as of March, and the number is growing. DNA analysis is a lengthy process, and it can take up to 600 days for FBI labs to provide testing results.According to the report, missing persons cases represent the biggest portion of backlogged cases, The average time that it takes the FBI Laboratory to provide DNA testing [more...]

Augusta Military Divorce Attorney - Who's the father?

That's because occasionally a child's DNA will have novel mutations that differ from both biological parents. In those cases, a lab would need a knowledgeable geneticist to help interpret the results and thus avoid a false negative. The problem with drugstore testing is that there's no proof that the DNA samples came from the people claimed to have sent them. Therefore, such results wouldn't hold up legally. The customers for DNA tests tend to be equally divided between men and women, said Kristine Ashcraft, a molecular biologist at Genelex Corp., a company that also offers such tests over [more...]

The only time a DNA test can be enforced is the case where both parties have consented to the test.

In figuring out if the presumed parents are genuine biological ones or in determining actual biological mother or father-child bond, subjects undergo parental screening.
