Legal Aunt & Uncle DNA Test

Not sure if you need an AABB-accredited court admissible test? Our expert case managers are here to assist you through the entire testing process.

Because court admissible testing requires strict sample collection procedures and stringent documentation requirements, Endeavor DNA Laboratories maintains a network of approved sample collection sites across the United States. Our expert case managers will work with you to schedule a sample collection in your area at a time convenient for you.

Avuncular tests calculate the likelihood of relatedness between a child and an aunt or uncle. Because a child inherits exactly half of its genes from its biological father, and because the biological father shares (on average) half of his genes in common with his full sibling, the child will share (on average) half of its paternal genes in common with the full sibling of the biological father. Based upon the number of genetic matches, the laboratory calculates the statistical likelihood that the alleged aunt/uncle is biologically related to the child versus being unrelated.

It is important to understand that it may not always be possible to achieve a conclusive result. Even though they may have the same parents, a full sibling of the alleged father is not genetically identical to the alleged father and may have inherited numerous genetic markers that the alleged father did not. On the average, testing an alleged father’s full sibling allows us to determine only half of his genes.  To increase the certainty of the results, testing the mother of the child is strongly recommended, as this allows us to identify genetic markers of the child that were inherited maternally and to eliminate them from consideration as possible paternal markers.

Once we receive your samples, your AABB-accredited court-admissible test results will be completed in as little 5 business days. Rush testing options are available.
