Grandparents’ rights are often forgotten when it comes to paternity testing. A Grandparent DNA Test is often one of the better relationship DNA tests performed to determine the paternity of a child when the alleged father is missing or not available for testing. Grandparents seek DNA testing on their grandchildren for two common reasons: they have doubts about the paternity of their son’s or daughter’s child, or they would like to prove that they are related to a grandchild whose family denies the relationship and bars them from developing a relationship with the child.
Grandparent DNA test results may be used as proof in Social Security benefits, other inheritance and insurance claims, and some immigration cases. We recommend that child’s mother add her DNA to the grandparent testing since it helps to facilitate the analysis and obtain conclusive test results. Peace of mind or legal reason?

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, a grandparent DNA test gives accurate results like any other paternity test. However, the decisiveness of results varies more. In a paternity test, the probability of the relationship between potential father and child is 99.9% or higher. But in grandparent testing, when we test only one grandparent, this probability comes down to 92%, which is still considered as a convincing result. However, to strengthen the conclusiveness of grandparent test results, we recommend that both paternal grandparents get tested along with the child’s mother.
Grandparents share 18-32% of their DNA with their grandchild, with an average being about 25%.
