DNA testing a father and child only can help to confirm paternity when there are doubts over a child’s biological father. It is possible to carry out this test with only the potential father and child. We do not need the mother’s DNA to carry out this type of paternity test.
How does DNA testing for a father and child only work?
Our paternity test proves parentage by analyzing the DNA found in cheek cells. When we examine the specific DNA markers in each sample, it is possible to identify which half of a child’s DNA is inherited from the mom, and which half is from the dad.
When we test a biological father, both the child and their father will share identical sections of DNA at each marker. If the man tested is not the child’s biological father, there will be differences in the DNA.
If the father has parental responsibility for the child, we are able to carry out this type of test without the child’s mother.
