Did you know that DNA testing is the most widely accepted method for determining someone’s identity in both scientific and legal communities? This type of testing is also referred to as paternity testing because it is designed to establish fatherhood. If you have questions about paternity testing, keep reading to find the answers:

Can a paternity test be administered before birth?
It is possible to establish fatherhood even before a baby is born, thanks to prenatal paternity testing. This method of testing is safe for both the mother and the baby, allowing fatherhood to be determined while the baby is still growing.

Can a paternity test be administered when the father is unavailable?
If the man who is believed to be the father is missing, deceased, or otherwise unavailable, then there are other testing options that can help determine fatherhood. These testing options include sibling tests, grandparent tests, and family reconstructions.

Who can be helped by paternity testing?
This type of testing is most commonly used to assist parents who want to establish fatherhood for custody, visitation, citizenship or child support reasons, but it can also help other types of people. Adoptees who want to learn about their biological parents can get started with DNA testing. Twins can also turn to this type of testing if they want to determine whether they are identical or fraternal.
