Paternity for Grandparents
A grandparent study (sometimes referred to as grandpaternity) involves both parents of the alleged father. The test between the paternal grandchild and grandparents is often conclusive with almost the same assurance as the paternity test. This test is more extensive and not recommended unless a sample from the alleged father is unobtainable. The laboratories normally require an extra week to process this test. It is not as difficult as a sibling study.
Many grandparents order the grandparent home DNA test kit that allows them to verify that they are the grandparents without their sons’ knowledge.

PUTATIVE FATHER -- In many states, the husband of a married woman who bears a child is automatically presumed to be the father. This presumption of paternity makes him the putative father. Some jurisdictions take the presumption of paternity one step further by not allowing a man to disprove biological paternity through DNA. As a result men who are not the biological fathers of their wife’s children are forced to pay child support for children they have not biologically fathered.
