Learn The Basic Process Of DNA Paternity Testing

However, how does DNA testing work? The DNA Paternity Test is conducted by taking DNA sample of the supposed father and the child. The child has a combination of the mother and father’s DNA that is a known fact. Thus, the child’s genome will contain almost equal parts of the mother and the father. The proof of paternity is obtained by comparing the DNA sequences of both the child and the supposed father. If their DNA results match, it means that the supposed father is indeed the child’s biological father. If it doesn’t, then it sets things clear and gives peace of mind to both [more...]

Paternity Prenatal Testing

Clients who wish to determine paternity during pregnancy may opt for a Prenatal Paternity test, similar to normal DNA paternity test, the prenatal test analyses the baby’s DNA with that of the alleged father. The baby’s DNA is established at conception; a prenatal test gives the same conclusive results as a normal paternity test. I must make it clear that a prenatal sample collection is done at the discretion of the gynecologist. This is done because prenatal sample collection poses significant risk to both mother and baby. I recommend counseling with a medical doctor prior to prenatal [more...]

DNA Testing and the Future of Autism

Personally, I'm not entirely sure that developing a prenatal test is such a good idea, even assuming that they are able to predict autism in more than 10% of the autism population. Of course, I'm not sure the details involved in a prenatal test, but it seems to me that it would be more cost-efficient not to have a prenatal test and have a diagnostic test if a child is suspected of being autistic. I mean, think about it, with the potential fears of abortion aside, is it really feasible to prenatal test every child?   A bit more reasonable is to test in families with a family history of [more...]

If your ex decides that he wants to be involved…all he has to do is go to a judge and request a DNA test, you will be forced to consent, and when the baby is proven to be his…the judge will make a decision on visitation and custody and all that.

How DNA is Used in Paternity Testing?

Recently, companies have begun selling DNA paternity tests over the counter at drug stores, which facilitates home testing.

The legality of testing another person’s DNA without their consent varies by state. If a paternity test is to be used in a court of law, chain of custody of the DNA sample must be verified. This means that every step of the paternity testing process and analysis is documented, from the collection of the DNA sample by an [more...]
