A grandparentage DNA test helps determine whether a grandfather or grandmother is the true biological grandparent of a child. A grandparent test is particularly useful when the parent of the child is not available for testing. In a grandparent DNA test, the child’s DNA pattern (profile) is compared with the DNA profiles (patterns) of the father’s parents.
Grandparent DNA Test may be used for the following reasons:
- Inheritance claims
- Immigration cases
- Child benefits
