If the alleged father is unavailable for a paternity testing, in this case, testing the suspected father’s brothers or sisters can establish the paternity of the niece or nephew. This type of testing is called an Avuncular DNA Test. Including the mother in this test is strongly recommended, although not required, as it strengthens the genetic evidence. Generally, this test will not give results as strong as a grandparentage test, but it is still a good option if the only available people are the alleged father’s siblings.
Situations in which avuncular DNA test proves beneficial:
- To establish the truth about a biological relationship
- To know medical history for diagnosis of a specific health situation.
- To get social security benefits.
- To provide proof for inheritance claims
- To present evidence for insurance claims.
Like any other paternity test, the Avuncular DNA test also provides both personal and legal testing options.
