GRANDPARENTAGE
Modern technology for DNA testing allows Legal Genetics the ability to resolve matters involving heredity. Genes can be traced from parents to children to grandchildren within a family tree. The results from this test can establish grandparentage. Grandparentage testing applications include (but are not limited to) cases with missing or deceased parents. In those cases, the child can be tested with the grandparents.

FEES
$500 Child, mother and both grandparents
($200 Each additional person)
$250 Preparation of legal affidavit (optional)
Additional fees for shipping and/or sample collection may apply.
Prices may vary slightly depending on actual circumstances.
