Research has shown that 40% of women and 60% of men in a committed relationship will be unfaithful at some point.
Also research published in the United Kingdom suggests that about four percent of fathers, without their knowledge, are raising a child that is not their own.
If statistics show that four percent of fathers are affected, this means about one in twenty five families are sitting on a potential paternity time bomb. In the UK about 33 percent of all pregnancies are unplanned and 1 in 5 women in long-term relationships admit to having extra material affairs.
With statics like these it’s very easy to understand that paternity rumours can start very easily, but while rumours are easy to start they are very difficult to quash.
Imagine a situation where you have been married for several years, have more than one child and you hear a rumour that one of those children has not been sired by you.
This is a question that will continue to raise its head no matter how hard you try to put this question out of the forefront of your mind.
Once the biological relationship to an alleged father has been questioned then this question will always keep reoccurring until you have definitive proof.
It may not be the biological relationship between a child and an alleged father that is in question. It could be between a brother and sister who have been separated for a period of time, or the relationship between grandparents and a child.
This is where a DNA test can give you the evidence you need to stop the rumours once and for all.
We help thousands of families every year settle these kind of questions by the use of DNA testing.
We have two different type of DNA test available. The first type of test is a (peace of mind) DNA test, which is used only for your peace of mind. This test cannot be used in any UK court of law due to the way that the samples are collected.
In a pace of mind DNA test we send you a DNA sample collection kit out through the post and you collect the DNA sample yourself by use of buccal swabs. You rub these swabs on the inside of the individuals involved cheeks. You then seal the swabs in individual envelopes and send the samples back through the post for testing. You will receive your results by email the next working day.
The second type of DNA test is a legal DNA test. This type of test can be used in a UK court of law as the samples are taken by an independent third party such as a doctor or nurse. At no point are the individuals being tested are allowed to handle the DNA samples. This ensures that there cannot be any tampering with the DNA samples.
We can help determine the following relationships:
- Paternity – Is the alleged father the biological father of a child
- Maternity – is there a biological relationship between an alleged mother and child
- Sibling – is there a biological relationship between an alleged brothers/sisters
- Grandparentage – is there a biological relationship between children an alleged grandparents
- Aunt/Uncle – is there a biological relationship between a child and alleged aunts or uncles
