Paternity - How to Establish Paternity | Expert Guides | Yodle ...

Generally, after some fraught, high-pitched conversation, the host will challenge the so-called father to take a paternity test. Left with little choice, the man reluctantly agrees. More often than not, he is proven to be the father. A real-life version of this scenario is one I come along all too often in my family law practice. Paternity is often contested. But a father should never neglect his duties, which beyond those of fatherhood can often be financial and practical for the mother. Here are a few methods to prove someone is the father of a child. Marriage at time of birth – If you [more...]

Paternity Blood Test | Diet and Health Tips & Products Reviews

Today, the most accurate tests (99.99%) to determine the paternity of a child are made through DNA. Collecting DNA sample is done two ways: Buccal swab (swabbing the inside of the cheek) and blood samples. Known as PCR (polymerase chain reaction), the procedure is used in comparing samples of the childís DNA with that of the alleged father. Since the childís DNA is a fairly equal combination of DNA of his parents, excluding the DNA of the mother gives us a genetic profile of the biological father. However, before science knew how to isolate DNA, blood samples were the standard in a variety [more...]

Ancestry DNA Testing

DNA research worldwide led to the discovery of genetic markers that are used to evaluate ancestry. These markers follow three types of inheritance pattern categories. These are autosomal DNA line, the paternal DNA line and maternal DNA line. The autosomal DNA line is made of all DNA in the cells excluding the X – chromosome, Y – chromosome and mtDNA. A person inherits half of autosomal DNA from the biological mother and the other half from the biological father. The Y chromosome markers are paternally related and passed from a father to his son. They are used to trace a person’s [more...]
