Affordable Avuncular DNA Testing
Avuncular DNA Testing involves testing the child's paternal aunt or uncle (the alleged father's sister or brother). Including the mother in this test is strongly recommended 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 people available for testing are the alleged father's siblings.
An Avuncular DNA Test is done by establishing a link between the DNA of a child and the DNA of an alleged aunt or uncle. It is important to note that aunts and uncles will have only one quarter of their genes in common with a child, whereas parents and children have half their genes in common.
This test is only recommended if the paternal grandparents are unavailable as well as the alleged father. Nonetheless, it will provide a numerical probability for the alleged familial relationship.
