Legal Probate DNA Testing
There are instances when someone passes away without having executed a written will. If the deceased is a parent, disputes can happen within the family. This type of conflict typically arises from who gets possession of the of the decedent’s items such as estate, money and belongings.
If there is a dispute about beneficiaries of the estate, Legal DNA testing may be required. This can be accomplished by using a sample obtained from the deceased individual for a deceased DNA test. Another option might be to test acknowledged relatives for a family relationship DNA test.
