Grandparents Can Get Involved With Paternity Testing As Well

Traditionally, we think of paternity testing a something that involves a wronged spouse or a father looking to see if he has a paternal relationship with a particular child, but there are other instances where DNA testing is used for the betterment of people as well.

DNA Testing

We’re all familiar with the fact that DNA testing is widely used to solve criminal activities as well but one of the places where people might be surprised to find it being implemented is with cases concerning the grandparentage of individuals. Generally, this kind of test is used to determine if two people can be the biological grandparents of a child. Like other kinds of DNA testing and including a paternity DNA test before birth, this process requires samples be collected from all the parties involved.

This is a procedure used to determine the way a family’s relationship works with each other when the father isn’t available for testing. As with the other kinds of DNA testing, there’s a need to find these relationships as they pertain to claims that are being made for social security and other inheritance claims.


Of course the need for this kind of DNA testing generally means that the people involved want to make sure they get in touch with the best facilities that can carry these tests out in a reasonable and timely manner. That’s where reputation means everything to these paternity  testing companies.  It’s easy to find the best of these places online but there are a few other routes that you can take to ensure that the facility you choose will give you the best service possible. You can check their reputation several ways including:

- Asking friends and relatives what they know.

- Looking on the Internet to see what’s been posted about any particular paternity testing company.

- Asking professionals like lawyers in your community who they use.

- Asking about the facilities guarantee and accreditaion (be sure and use an AABB accreted facility)
