DNA Aunt/Uncle Test

The DNA Aunt/Uncle Test is ideal when the alleged parent is unavailable for testing. This test provides the likelihood of a person being the true biological aunt or uncle of a child. It becomes particularly useful when the alleged father cannot participate in a DNA paternity test. Instead, the siblings of the alleged father—the potential aunt or uncle—can be tested to investigate biological connections.

Important! Please note that the DNA Aunt test and DNA Uncle test is not as powerful as a DNA paternity test/parentage test. If the alleged parent(s) in question is/are available for testing, we highly recommend the paternity test or maternity test over the DNA aunt or uncle test. The DNA paternity and maternity tests will always provide absolutely conclusive results. The DNA aunt or uncle test should only be chosen if the parent in question absolutely cannot be tested. If you decide to proceed with a DNA Aunt test or DNA Uncle test in order to find out whether an alleged father is the true biological father of a child, we highly recommend adding the child’s biological mother to the grandparent test in order to increase the power of the test. The DNA aunt test and DNA uncle test results will provide a likelihood that an aunt or uncle is the true biological aunt or uncle of a child.
