When you think DNA is not for you

When you think DNA test is not for you.
When dealing with all of life’s difficult challenges, most often, our most prevailing question
is what one can do to find the answers to some of life’s biggest questions.
The widespread use of DNA tests have come about primarily due to the advanced DNA
technology now readily available. Everything from criminal investigations to paternity tests
offer people the data and evidence necessary for getting some very important questions
answered and offering peace of mind.
Here are some of the most common reasons for utilizing DNA testing:
To establish rights to an inheritance
Situations can arise in inheritance cases where unknown or known, but disputed, children of a
dead father or mother can file a claim to an inheritance. To be absolutely certain whether the
child (minor or adult) in question is an heir to the inheritance, having a legal DNA paternity
test completed will clear up any doubts and ensure those who are entitled to an inheritance
are treated fairly in the case. For instance a situation where the father of the child died some
years back and the family of the deceased are not sure if the child really belongs to their son,
in this case you can have what we call a GRAND PARENT DNS TESTING. That is using
the deceased parents.
To identify a biological vs. Adopted Parent
Sometimes children who are raised by adopted parents or conceived through donor
conception to have a desire to find and identify their “biological” father. Similar to cases
where a married couple have divorced when a child is young and the child is raised by
another man who may assume a father role, there is often a need, once the child grows up, to
meet and have a relationship with their biological father. DNA paternity testing is important
steps in helping adult children discover their “real (biological)” fathers.
In a case where the real (biological) father or mother of the child comes up maybe after 10 or
even 20 years of giving the child up for adoption, a paternity or maternity DNA test as to be
to be done, in other for the adopted parents and the child to be sure that their claim is actually
right before they can start talking about handling the child over.
To establish ancestry
Some people want to trace their historical past and their link to certain family lines. In this
case they can take a DNA sample from themselves and provided the other party is willing
take a DNA sample from them and identify common DNA traits. To Ascertain Paternity Paternity tests are more common than ever and provide a definitive answer as to the child’s
paternity. Sometimes these tests are used just to obtain peace of mind, but quite often legal
issues are involved. In addition to DNA paternity tests, more and more demand has been
created for sibling and grandparent tests. These tests assist in legal cases or provide important
information for filling in gaps in a particular family’s history. For example If a mother or
father passes away and there is the circumstance where unknown individual claims to be their
child, DNA testing is used to determine if said person is really related to the deceased mother
or father.
Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test
Non-Invasive Prenatal Paternity Test is one DNA test that helps discover the paternity of a
baby before birth. Sometimes, paternity questions make women opt for this. This type of
DNA paternity testing is based on comparison of genetic profiles of the fetal cells, mother’s
blood and samples from the father(s) in dispute. This happens most times when the father to
be is refuses to accept the responsibility of fatherhood or when the woman in question
doesn’t know who the real father of the unborn child is.
Prenatal Genetic Tests
One of the most valuable uses of DNA testing has been through prenatal genetic tests. These
tests help doctors to access whether or not an unborn fetus will have noticeable health
problems upon birth. The DNA tests also help the doctors to determine the probability of the
certain genetic diseases being passed on from generation to generation. For instance, prostrate
cancer can now be substantiated as a high risk genetic disease. This, genetic profiling, assists
those in the high risk category in seeking the proper regularly scheduled check-ups to assist
in early identification of any possible genetic diseases.
Health Status/ Ailment Discovery
We live in an interesting period where science and technology may overpower the natural
laws of evolution. The creation of a chromosome map of our genetic blueprint has been in
development for many years now. It’s the result of the Human Genome Project. This research
provides precise indicators of the functions of various genes and is helping to discover
methods to fight disease through Gene Therapy. The collection of DNA data from an
increasing number of people leads to a better understanding of various gene mutations and
how they affect our health.
For Immigration Purposes
You may need an immigration DNA test to prove the biological relationship between alleged
father and child. Our immigration test offers highly accurate results and can be used to prove
parentage or relationships between relatives.
As DNA technology continues to develop, the various reasons for using the DNA test will
also increase. The cost of the paternity test is much less prohibitive than in days past and will
probably continue to see cheaper pricing as the testing continues to become more widespread. So many answers have been provided to so many people through the use of DNA testing and
those answers will continue to grow in the future.
