Determine the relationship of a child and the parents of the alleged father
The answer is in your genes.
An abuelity test, conducted in the absence of the alleged father, determines the relationship between a child and the parents of the alleged father.
A DNA test for grandparents determines if a couple could be biological grandparents of a child. This is an indirect way of determining family relationships when the alleged father is not available for the paternity test. The results of the grandparenthood test can be used as evidence in claims for Social Security benefits and other inheritance claims as well as in some immigration cases.
In the test, the child’s DNA profile is compared to the DNA profiles of the biological parents of the alleged father. Given that a child inherits half of its mother’s DNA (maternal side), the paternal half should match the DNA transmitted by the presumed grandparents. For a more agile analysis, the participation of the mother is recommended; The tests of abuelity with absent mother are take much longer to complete due to the extensive analysis that is required.
