DNA Testing Can Help Answer This Question?
It is a grandparent’s right to dote on their grandchildren, to love them and to spoil them. In today’s world, however, many grandparents are also caring for their grandchildren. According to the 2010 census, 7 million grandparents had grandchildren under the age of 18 living with them. 2.7 million of those grandparents were directly responsible for the basic needs of their grandchildren.1 Caring for a grandchild can be challenging, both emotionally and financially.
Whether you are providing primary or supportive care for your grandchild or grandchildren, there may be circumstances that raise questions about the child’s parentage. Unfortunately, you may even be asking yourself, “Is this my grandchild?” If this is the case, a DNA test can help set your mind at ease. Additionally, you may need a DNA test in order to supply proof in a child support, Social Security, or other inheritance case.
If the alleged father is available for testing, a simple paternity test can give you the answers you need. There are times, however, when an alleged parent is not available to provide a DNA sample to be used in testing. When this is the case, a DNA grandparentage test can be used to determine if a couple could be the biological grandparents of a given child.
Nobody wants to have doubts about their family. Put those doubts to rest by determining the facts of your particular circumstances.
