For 3 years I was looking for my son's father and going thru buying expensive DNA test until we came across GTL. We ordered the 79$ kit and we did the simple swab. 4 days later we got the results and my son now has his dad in his life. Thank u so much GTL. 5 Stars!!!

Thank you for giving me a piece of mind without the expense! Being the parent of the expected father is difficult because you can only go by word of mouth but; through GTL, I can afford to have a DNA test done!

Missing Parent DNA Testing

missingParent.jpgIn cases where the mother or father is missing or deceased, this DNA test helps in determining paternity or maternity by using the DNA from the maternal or paternal grandparents (parents of the missing alleged mother or father).

The following example will help you understand how this test works:

A mother has a child and wishes to know if a man (the alleged father) is the biological father of the child. But, this alleged father is missing, unavailable, or deceased. If the alleged father's biological parents (i.e., the child's alleged paternal grandparents) are available, however, a profile can be derived from their DNA patterns that can then be used to test paternity of the missing alleged father. In this case, the ideal situation is to submit DNA samples from the mother, child, and both alleged paternal grandparents. It is also possible to conduct this testing with only the child and both alleged paternal grandparents (mother excluded), but this should only be done when the mother is not available.

Other ways of establishing this relationship may be possible. Please call toll free (866) 833-6895 if you need assistance.
