Grandparent DNA Relationship Testing
Grandparent DNA tests or Grandparent Relationship testing, allows the parent or parents of the alleged father to participate in DNA testing in order to prove paternity. In rare cases, grandparent testing may be used to determine if the grandparent is the maternal grandparent to the child. A Grandparent DNA test result will provide a statistical likelihood that the grandparent/grandchild relationship exists.
Grandparent testing can include one or both of the grandparents, but including both grandparents offers a stronger result. Also including the biological mother is always suggested in relationship testing. Adding the biological mother helps prevent inconclusive results. If the biological mother is not available, the test can still be performed.
How Grandparent DNA Testing Works
Order Grandparent Test
After deciding on a test, we will either send out a Home Grandparent DNA Test Kit or schedule an appointment for Grandparent DNA Testing at any of our 1000+ Testing Centers for DNA collection.
DNA collection is painless and easy to perform. DNA collections are performed with non-invasive buccal swabs. The swabs are brushed lightly on the inside of each individual’s cheeks for around 10 seconds.

Results typically complete within 3-10 days after the laboratory receives all testing kits. Grandparent DNA test results are then provided over the phone and email. Mailed copies can be sent upon request.
