The Avuncular DNA test determines whether an Aunt or Uncle could be biological related to a child. It is an indirect way to determine family relationships when an alleged father is not available for a paternity test. Avuncular DNA test results may be used as proof in Social Security benefit and other inheritance claims as well as in some immigration cases.
DNA samples are collected by a painless buccal (cheek) swab method. Results are reported typically within 3-5 working days.
