Client Case Study
"When I was 15, my Father showed me a photograph of a boy and told me it was given to him by the boy's mother who implied that he was my father's son! The instant I saw it I knew that this boy was my brother. I waited until I was an adult to make my search. Ten years later, I finally found my little brother. But I had to get my family as well as my father to accept him. I came across DNA Worldwide, got my father and new brother to perform the quick, easy procedure, and two weeks later, I could finally prove to the world what I already knew."

Who might need a grandparent DNA test?
A grandparent DNA test is often required when the alleged biological father, or mother, are not available for testing. If the alleged parents are unavailable, the next step is to perform a grandparent DNA test in order to establish a biological relationship with the family.
DNA tests such as grandparent testing can help bring families together. If you are a grandparent with questions about your biological relationship with your alleged grandchild, and a paternity or maternity test is not an option, a grandparent DNA test can provide the answers you need.
One or two grandparents?
At DNA Worldwide, we recommend DNA testing both grandparents alongside one parent, which is the best way to achieve the most accurate result. However, we understand that this cannot always happen. The DNA test can be completed with just one grandparent and child.
Can a paternity test be done with a grandparent?
Yes, paternity testing is often required to establish a biological relationship between a man and a child, however, sometimes the alleged father is not available for testing for various reasons. In cases such as this the best next option is for the biological parents of the alleged father to be tested with the child.
