How Does Grandparent DNA Test Work?

Each of the biological parents contribute 50% of their child’s DNA. Thus, when the child grows up and becomes a parent, he/she contributes 50% of his/her child’s DNA.

As a result of this, a grandchild’s DNA contains 25% of the grandparent’s DNA. This provides an avenue for confirming if a child is related to someone who is unavailable intentionally or due to demise through the person’s parent’s DNA testing.

When Can Grandparent DNA Test Be Done?

Grandparent DNA Test is advisable when either of or both alleged parents of the child in dispute is/are not available for testing but one of the alleged grandparents is available and willing to go through DNA test to confirm relationship with the child in dispute.
